Mano A Mano podcast of two great full albums on Concept Album available here:
Album: Who will cut our hair when we’re gone?
Artist: The Unicorns
Year: 2003 – re-released in 2014
Notes: This album is the Unicorns debut studio album. This is also their final album. The Unicorns released a self produced album and a few other smaller EPs but nothing as complete as this magnificent album.
Album: Heavy Meta
Artist: The Mounties
Notes: Super group “The Mounties” released some instant classics on their first album “Thrash Rock Legacy”. This second album was released very quietly. The Album was released and Hawksley Workman toured his solo album, Ryan Dahle started planning a Limblifter re-release and Steve Bays started a brand new project with Prairie Cat. This album is absolutely fantastic! Check it out in the podcast above!
Throughout the past little bit our program has seen more hate mail than in all the 5+ years that we have been doing the show…so much so that we couldn’t fit it all into this show and we will likely have to do a part 2 addressing certain concerns.
In this podcast we issue apologies to various hate mail that we have received, explain the situation from our perspective, hope that we are improving the lives of everyone in the word and play some great tracks to back these issues…..yes, even the Unicorns!
In the lineage of “Down The Alley” parties, the ex-owner of “Down the Alley” threw a new party at a new secret location in the Waterloo area that was even more remarkable. Including the re-forming of a few local bands, a rave, food, drink, you name it….it was at Wed-Dig. DJ AdRock and I were lucky enough to be invited and so we had to battle out great tracks pertaining to this event.
This is a reunion that we totally missed out on! The shows were all in August and in the US with only one in Canada but up in Montreal.
We are seriously hoping that the Unicorns will come down to Waterloo and perform here on the Mano A Mano show and continue the great indie rock that we know and love from this band! Check out the podcast above for two tracks recently released that are b-sides from the time of their amazing album “Who will cut our hair when we’re gone?”
