    18/05/2020 Duración: 21min

    Lots of musical things happened in 1981. One of those things was Rush's release of their most popular record, Moving Pictures. Just a few years before that, they were almost dropped from their record label. This week on NSTS we look at the leadup to the Moving Pictures album, how it came together. and all of the amazing intricacies that went into it - including the physical impacts Tom Sawyer's drum tracks had on Neil Peart, who the people are on the album cover, and what the triple entendre (not just double) cover artwork really means and who was behind it.

    So much great stuff happened at the beginning of the 80s that I just had to continue going through it this week on NSTS. In 1981 MTV changed the musical landscape forever, Blondie helped to bring rap into the mainstream spotlight with Rapture, and Ozzy bit the heads off of two doves in a meeting with record executives, kicking off a long list of misdeeds that would include biting the head off of a bat, snorting ants, urinating on the Alamo, and so much more. And it's all right here on this week's show, check it out.

    John, Bon, and Bonzo: we lost three rock icons in the year 1980. Former Beatle John Lennon, AC/DC singer Bon Scott, and Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham all departed in the same year.  This week on NSTS we continue our look at 1980, focusing on these three figures - shedding light on a new theory of how Scott may have really died, the bizarre backstory of Lennon killer Mark David Chapman, and why Bonzo's headmaster said he would either be a garbage man or a millionaire.

    NSTS Episode 155 - Joy Division, David Bowie, and the Walkman

    27/04/2020 Duración: 20min

    The 80s marked a time when music and commerce would become indelibly intertwined - record companies did away with old artist development models in favour of capitalizing on a growing new talent pool. And with MTV now providing a visual aspect to accompany a song, music would rely on image like never before. This week on NSTS we look at the bigger, brighter, and money-driven music of the 1980s, starting right at the beginning - in 1980. The creation and impact of the Sony Walkman, who The Rolling Stones song Angie was really about, the tragic death of Joy Division singer Ian Curtis, and much more. Don't miss it.

    NSTS Episode 153 - Chaos and Murder at Altamont

    14/04/2020 Duración: 16min

    In late 1969, The Rolling Stones gave fans a free concert in response to criticism that their concert tickets had been too expensive. They were joined by a select number of other acts at Altamont Speedway in California and the concert become a festival, fashioned after Woodstock. It would be anything but. Hells Angels acted as security, and Altamont would be remembered not for peace and love, but instead for destruction, murder, and 'the end of innocence'.  And a subsequent assassination attempt of Mick Jagger in New York.   

  • NSTS Episode 152 - The Peace  Love of Woodstock

    NSTS Episode 152 - The Peace & Love of Woodstock

    06/04/2020 Duración: 18min

    A lot of important things happened in 1969, and one of those things was the Woodstock music festival. This week on NSTS we take a close look at Woodstock's three days of 'peace and love' - the chaos it faced in hosting more than four hundred thousand people, the artists that showed up (along with the ones that didn't), and how it came to be known as a pivotal moment in defining a countercultural generation.

    30/03/2020 Duración: 23min

    1969 was a crazy year. Led Zeppelin scared the hell out of people with their heavy rock debut(s), and Charles Manson scared people in a much different way. And The Beatles broke up, which may have scared one or two people.   Join me as I examine the above in detail, including Zeppelin's tendencies to 'borrow' from old blues artists, Manson's bizarre relationship with Beach Boys drummer Dennis Wilson, and the shocking way in which Beatles classic Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da was actually written.

    There have been times when I wasn't sure we would hit this milestone. But here we are, almost three years after the very first episode of No Sleep 'til Sudbury aired, at episode number 150. Wow. To celebrate, I went through the last 50 shows and put together some moments I thought represented the show at its best - insightful musical conversation, laughs, tears, and great musical performances. I regret not being able to use all of the material, as I've had so many incredible guests, conversations, and performances, but this isn't a bad rendering. Sincere thanks to all my loyal listeners around the world - this episode is for YOU. Enjoy, and stay safe!

    NSTS Episode 146 - Legendary Promoter Gary Topp

    25/02/2020 Duración: 36min

    Not many people can say they changed the cultural landscape of a city. This guy can. Legendary concert promoter Gary Topp is my guest this week on NSTS.  Topp and his business partner Gary Cormier would come to be known as The Garys, a concert promotion colossus that introduced Toronto to Punk and New Wave, having brought bands like The Police, MC5, Talking Heads, and The Ramones to the city for the first time. They were also responsible for the riot that was The Last Pogo, but I'll let Gary tell that story. Don't miss this.     

  • NSTS Episode 145 - Wargasms Bob Mayo

    NSTS Episode 145 - Wargasm's Bob Mayo

    18/02/2020 Duración: 34min

    Former Wargasm bassist, writer, and friend of the show Bob Mayo joins me this week on NSTS to chat about more songs I've never heard.    Regular listeners will remember that Bob has told some pretty courageous personal stories on the show previously, and that he's an incredibly authentic individual. Recently he was asked to give a talk at MIT about, in his own words, how heavy metal didn't necessarily save his life, but certainly gave him one. Bob is definitely the real deal.   Mayo's playlist: Blue Oyster Cult - The Golden Age of Leather Gillan – Abbey of Thelema Immolation – Fostering the Divide Voivod – Neutrino Wishbone Ash - Lifeline    

  • NSTS Episode 144 - 1991 Part II: GNR, Metallica, and Freddie Mercury

    NSTS Episode 144 - 1991 Part II: GN'R, Metallica, and Freddie Mercury

    10/02/2020 Duración: 24min

    As discussed last week on NSTS, 1991 was the year that grunge exploded. However, the scene was still very much in its infancy - hard rock and heavy metal were still the most dominant version of rock. So this week, in addition to talking about U2, Garth Brooks, and Lollapalooza, we look at the two most powerful heavy rock bands of 1991 - Guns N' Roses and Metallica. Axl Rose made history doing something no artist had ever done before with the Illusion records, and the recording of Metallica's Black Album was so intense that three of the four band members would get divorced before it was completed. Don't miss this.        

  • NSTS Episode 143 - 1991: Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and the Rise of Grunge

    NSTS Episode 143 - 1991: Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and the Rise of Grunge

    03/02/2020 Duración: 22min

    I'm pretty stoked about this week's episode, which focuses on the rise of the Grunge movement of 1991 - the stories behind how Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and other acts came to found this musical movement.   The most interesting aspect of what people understood to be 'grunge' is that many of the bands thought to represent the genre, including Soundgarden, Stone Temple Pilots, and Alice In Chains, really weren't grunge at all. So what were they really? And what was really responsible for the eradication of hair bands in 1991? Hint: it wasn't grunge...

    Guitarist and friend of the show Greg Fraser calls in to NSTS this week. He's got a brand new band called Storm Force, with a brand new record, Age of Fear - and it's been getting a lot of attention around the world since its release last week. Because he's such a great Canadian, Fraze brings in five Canuck tunes that make his skin vibrate. As always, we have some laughs and a great musical chat that includes catching Geddy Lee on an off day and Lars Ulrich's opinion of Streetheart. Fraze's playlist: Frank Marino & Mahogany Rush - World Anthem Triumph - Magic Power Goddo - AnacanaPanacana So Walk On Streetheart - What Kind Of Love Is This Rush - 2112 Overture

    21/01/2020 Duración: 15min

    This week on No Sleep 'til Sudbury, I examine the year of 1978 through some of the most bizarre and fascinating events that shaped it musically, including Richard Branson trying to have Sex Pistols singer Johnny Rotten join Devo as their new singer after the Pistols broke up. The facts behind the untimely deaths of Sid Vicious, Keith Moon, and Chicago's Terry Kath are also discussed, as is the ill-fated KISS solo albums strategy, and the massively far-reaching influence of New Wave. Don't miss it!
