Recorded in 1966, this song was actually released as a single. Zappa claimed that we are the brain police. He said: “So, you don't even need to blame it on a central brain police agency. You've got plenty of people who willingly subject themselves to this self-mutilation.”

The song was also cited by Mojo magazine as "one of the scariest songs to ever emerge from the rock psyche". While comparing it to Kafka, Mojo described the song as "a vision of contemporary America where personal identity and individuality is erased".

It ends with a kazoo solo!

6.   Andy DeJarlis: The Westphalia Waltz
Old time Waltzes: London EB 46
Woodridge Manitoba

Metis fiddle player who became a Canadian favourite – tops in Western Canada. I personally own 20 different albums by him.

Produced 1957

She couldn’t speak English so didn’t understand the words to the songs. Sang them phon-etically. Came to America early 1953 to perform in Can Can on Broadway.

She calls ‘Cest Magnifique’ the Frenchiest song ever written by an American (Cole Porter).

They played their last gig on  December 30, 2002 in Louisiana. They helped popularize traditional Cajun music by adding a rocking rhythm section. No triangle player!

A good classic Cajun accordion player, Richard was one of the first Cajun players to utilize modern country music to outsell his competitors. His versio Ray Steven’s song, The Streak (called The Cajun Streak here) was one of the best selling records ever put out by Fred Soileau’s Swallow Records.

Le danse de la limonade is a Cajun country favourite, performed here by a Quebecois band. It’s all about swearing off partying and alcohol on Saturday nights only to repeat this a week later! Apparently the singer makes a big pig out of himself.

A well loved Cassette by Toronto’s Cajun Ramblers, one of Canada’s only Cajun / Zydeco bands from the late 1980s. Birthed into life with a weekly Thursday gig at Toronto’s Southern Accent Restaurant the Ramblers went on to play festivals in Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Quebec and virtually covered most of Ontario, from Wallaceburg to Ottawa.

Martin Racine, violin, mandola
Rejan Archambault, bass

Produced by Mario Forest 1987
Recorded by Andre L’esperance & Andre Marchand

The best of the new wave of Quebecois nationalist bands that blossomed in the latter 1970s after the election of Rene Levesque’s Parti Quebecois. They are also the last of the original bands still functioning, albeit with none of the their original players. But they’re always great; in a league of their own.

Montreal QC

Montreal area garage band (literally) that was influenced by The Stones and The Haunted. Circa 1963: 69. Apparently, there is only one photograph of the group, published in the book The Marvelous Epoch of Quebecois groups of the 60s.

1.   Heads In The Sky: Heads In Rio
(Russ Walker)
Heads In the Sky: Illuminated Records IR 001
Oak Ridges ON

Produced by Russ Walker, 1981
Recorded by Russ Walker and Brock Fricker, Rene Brossard and Gerry Fielding
Recorded at Brock Sound, Toronto
Mixed at Amber Studios by George Simkiw and Paul Bonish and Zaza Sound, Toronto

The brainchild of Oak Ridges, Ontario musician Russ Walker. The band released one album and an EP on their own Illuminated Records. The full-length LP was also released in Japan, Holland and Germany.

Drummer Gerry Fielding had previously been in FAT MOUTH, the house band at the original 'Electric Circus' in Toronto, and opened for acts like Alice Cooper, Rod Stewart, and Lighthouse.

2.   Stone Roses: Elephant Stone
(Ian Brown / John Squire)
Stone Roses: RCA ‎– 1184-2-JX
Manchester UK
Gary Mounfield: Bass
Reni: Drums, Backing Vocals
John Squire: Guitar
Ian Brown: Vocals
Produced by Peter Hook, 1989
Mixed By John Leckie
Recorded at Battersea Studios and Konk Sound (The Kinks), London

John Leckie, who produced the album, also worked on Pink Floyd’s Meddle. The band was active between 1988 and 1996 and got screwed over by a bad contract they signed with a small British label, Silvertone. Stone Roses, the band’s first album, was one of the most successful British albums of 1989 but because of the contract problems they it would be way past their due-date when they released their second album in 1994.

3.   Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band: Beatle Bones N’ Smokin’ Stones
(Don Van Vliet)
Strictly Personal: Liberty Records LN 66141
Los Angeles
Captain Beefheart: vocals, harmonica, oboe
Alex St. Clair Snouffer: guitar
Jerry Handley: bass
John French: drums
Jeff Cotton: guitar
Produced by Bob Krasnow, 1968
Recorded at Sunset Sound Recorders, Hollywood

When the band went into the studio in late 1967 to record the follow-up to their debut album Safe as Milk, which had been released earlier that year, it was with the intention of producing a double album, provisionally entitled It Comes to You in a Plain Brown Wrapper. Three of the tracks they recorded were long, psychedelic blues jams performed 'live in the studio' (in one take with no overdubs). These were intended to fill one of the set's two LPs. The band were also working on a number of other tracks, many of which would eventually be included on Strictly Personal (1968). These songs were characterized by their polyrhythmic structures and psychedelic themes, which marked a progression from the band's previous blues-rooted work on Safe as Milk. Beatle Bones n’ Smokin’ Stones obviously had something to do with Strawberry Fields Forever but, I’m not sure what that could have been!

4.   Levon & The Hawks: Stones That I Throw

Cleveland OH

Kenny Passarelli: bass
Produced by Bill Szymczyk 1972
Compilation album produced 1978

Just out of the James Gang, Walsh went on to show the world that he was good enough to join The Eagles. I think he was better than the Eagles! But before he joined, he recorded a few great albums of original material.

This is the soundtrack to the Pistols’ film Rock ‘N’ Roll Swindlewhich was released after John Lyndon (Rotten) had left the Pistols. They used his vocals from a 1976 demo and re-recorded the music tracks. So why did they choose to play a Monkee’s song? (Note: before the Monkees, the song was recorded by none other than Paul Revere And The Raiders, released the same month as The W.C. Fields Memorial Electric String Band’s version).

Daisy DeBolt: guitar, vocal
Ian Guenther: violin
Produced by Craig Allen, 1971
Recorded by Mark Smith and Allan Moy

Signed to Columbia Records, this album wasn’t pushed enough to make a major mark, but it could have. A revue of the album in High Fidelity magazine in 1971 claimed this “one of the best pop albums I have ever heard.” They did record  second album called With Pleasure but it also flopped as a seller. A third album was attempted but never finished or released. Their albums have never been reissued on CD.

Jackie Shane b. Nashville TN May 15, 1940 / d. Feb 21, 2019 Nashville

Jackie Shane came to Toronto in 1959 and, like Lonnie Johnson, decided that Canada was to be her new home. She said: “One cannot choose where one is born, but you can choose your home.” She went on to release some fabulous records but decided, in 1971, to leave it all behind her. She returned to the States to look after her mother, who lived in Nashville. In 2017 an anthology album of Shane’s works was issued by the Numero Group label and was nominated for a Grammy Award. The liner notes were written by Toronto’s Rob Bowman who claimed that Shane’s life “story is so remarkable, that even Hollywood couldn’t dream it up.”
