Here is the full podcast from Sat Mar. 14th! Two great albums were added to the Concept Album Mosaic. Check out the albums here then go buy all these bands merch!
Album: Hot Hot Heat
Artist: Hot Hot Heat
Notes: After 17 years, five albums, and numerous line up changes, Hot Hot Heat are calling it quits with their final, self-titled LP, which looks back on things with surface cheeriness and tangible fatigue. This album was not really toured but is one of my favourite albums that I have not only in my Hot Hot Heat collection but in my entire vinyl collection!
Artist: Frankie and the Witch Fingers
Year: 2019 Frankie & the Witch Fingers‘ fifth album, 2019’s Zam, sounds as psychedelic as a paisley shirt under a blacklight, but it’s also the work of a furiously tight band with plenty of guitar firepower, a killer rhythm section, and enough energy and momentum to fly around the globe non-stop….the internet says. For me, my brother bought me this vinyl and I had no idea what it was about. I put it on and immediately loved this entire album! It was in the CKMS Top 19 of 2019. Check it out above then go purchase your copy!
We recently had Evan from the Robot Apocalypse Collective in the CKMS Studio to share some Block Three Brewing Company Kind Street Saison’s, talk about new collaborations and where he gets inspiration for this exciting collaborative project. In addition to playing a few Robot Apocalypse tracks the Mano A Mano DJ’s play a throwback Song from Evans former band “Run Down Royalty” from when they were in the CKMS studio Years ago.
Matt Kras from the newly formed Robot Apocalypse Collective came by the Mano A Mano show to promote the new self titled EP that was just released. Check out the podcast above for some of the music and then Download it FREE on the link below!

In the podcast we explore the origins of this ALS Ice bucket phenomena that is sweeping across social media. In addition to that we look at the rules and rock some great tracks.
I realize I was a few days late with completing the challenge. I wanted to look into this a bit further to make sure that it was a good cause. What I was worried about was that the time limit forced people to just mindlessly follow the pyramid scheme social media experiment without looking further into what it was about.

I was nominated by DJ Jeff E Jeff. I nominated Brad Merritt, Lyle Bell and Parker Bossley.
Now to start things off we were discussing on twitter with the Wet Secrets and the Gay Nineties to have them in the Mano A Mano environment for an interview or live to air. It turned out that they were watching Mounties bandmate Hawksley Workman’s play “The God that comes”. So we took a request from the Gay Nineties here is that twitter discussion.
The Gay Nineties requested the Hawksley Workman song “Tokyo Bicycle” which got us thinking on Air. The Mounties have a song “Tokyo Summer” and Hot Hot Heat (which includes Mounties member Steve Bays) has a song “Tokyo Vogue”. So the other official member of the Mounties is Ryan Dahle and he has no “Tokyo” song. BUT, he is releasing a new Limblifter album sometime soon…we tweeted him about his possibility….and it looks promising!
If there is a 14th song on the new Limblifter album you can thank the Mano A Mano show for that! If there isn’t…..we might have another collaboration project for Ryan!
