That's what my music project “World United Music” is all about, bringing
attention to all the artists who make great music.
off today’s show is Sydney Australia’s “Underlights” with “Remnants” taken from
their 2012 self titled EP “Underlights”. “Remnants” lends the feelings of being
in a serene dream state while searching for something elusive. An excellent
expression from an excellent EP…yet
long after their EP release, the band disappeared from the music radar screen
which leaves me dumbfounded as to why because this group should have been on
every radio station world wide in my opinion. Maybe we can coax them back, hey,
Jack Friels, Johnny Took, Tom O’Dell and
If you’re out there listening,
back and do this thing! We need more music like this!
Underlights is David Philips with “Nowhere” taken from his latest album “Get
Along” digitally released by Black n Tan Records May 7th, 2018. The
album is David’s 7th to date which continues the passionately soulful
acoustic folk n blues David is known for. It’s the very thing I love about
David’s music as he pours his soul into every track to greet us in our solitary
confinement with colourful waves of hope through the medicinal properties of
the blues…and so his song, “Nowhere” greets us half a mile from nowhere and
takes us somewhere meaningful, to process life.
David Philips is Parker Bombshell with “Karma” taken from their June 2014 EP
“Everyone’s a TV Baby” “Karma” is a new wave synth pop tune with a catchy dance
beat that examines the blind alley some of us end up in… in its way, “Karma”
helps us to move beyond a depressive state by confronting regrets and replacing
them with hope. A unique song in healing ambience and lyric, so hats off to Tom
McNeil and Thomas Payne who are Parker Bombshell.
Time comes alive in music to create “Remnants” from “Nowhere” where “Karma”
greats us in song…another meaningful set of music on the minstral show.
second set of music is very progressive and deals with the dark places we
sometimes go to in our minds. …fear not, we will not leave you there
off the second set is Minnianapolis Minnesota band “NOMIA” with “A Windswept
Tree” taken from their 2014 Album Iron and Rust. “A Windswept Tree” is a
progressive instrumental Rock piece that absorbs the listener into a matrix of
complex expressions and thought…in a way the music simulates the mind
processing a backlog of life we often put aside for another day…the very reason
why Progressive Rock is called the thinking mans music. Truly a must listen for
critical thinkers and progressive rock fans.
up is Albuquerque New Mexico band “Coma Recovery with “Nox Medicus” or “Night
Medicine” from their April 2018 album “Apotheosis” What Coma Recovery delivers
is an infectious heavy rock / progressive rock tune with deeply poetic and
moving lyrics that reminds of Tears for Fears, only heavier. A great song that cements
the songs of this set into a thought filled meaningful expression.
out the set is the Musically sophisticated and immensely talented Boston Art
Rock group “Walter Sickert & The Army of Broken Toys” with “Cataclysm”
taken from their 2010 album “Steam Ship Killers”. “Cataclysm” is the end…the
end of the crisis we must all face if we are to see it through…the perfect
climactic end to this powerful set of music.
so, A Windswept Tree, Night Medicine and A Cataclysm find their way into your thoughts,
only on the minstral show.
and revolution fill the third set on today’s theme of the minstral show…
rock group “Drenge” starts the final set with “Side by Side” taken from their
2015 Album “Undertow”
by Side” is a grungy garage punk rock tune that jumps out of the darkest nights
with a defiant attitude. One of the very best songs by Drenge.
Drenge is Rhode Island Punk Rocker “Robert Icaza” with “Gotta Get Out” taken
from his 2018 album “Demo”.
by the Clash, Bad Religion and the Sex Pistols among others, Robert says what
we all feel at times…we gotta get out, gotta get out of here…and then the
decision is made…
Robert Icaza is Green Day with a live version of “99 Revolutions” from their
2012 album “Tre’”…I say it often and I say it again, “The revolution BEGINS
with Music” and what better way to do it than with the rockin defiant attitude
of Green Day.
this special 4 song set is “Michael Mazochi with “Put up a Fight” an unreleased
song from 2015 that tells us not to give up or give in but to put up a fight
against all the lies the establishment rests on…Don’t live a lie, put up a
fight…A powerful rock n roll tune who’s voice needs to be heard by all.

so we have seemingly come from a state of Isolation and illusion into a conscious
awakening to face our fears and the oblivion that is all around us to then seize the moment through rebellion and revolution and put up a fight…
