CGCM Podcast Episode 28 – The CGCM’s Greatest Live Albums Of All Time!

Copy of episode 28

The Canadian Geeks are back at it again. Another long evening of drinking and recording and a little more drinking and you get this. Almost two and a half hours of drunkin’ rock n roll babble with some really great music to keep you interested and listening to the entire episode.

Live albums are often polarizing in their own right. Some love em (Wallygator) and others not so much (The Meister) but nonetheless they sometimes can even define an artists career. Where would Kiss be without Alive? The Who’s Live at Leeds, Cheap Trick’s Live at Budokan, Jimi Hendrix Live at Montery and of course who could forget Poison’s Swallow This Live! (ok maybe not so much that last one!)

So with the success of the CGCM’s Greatest Debut Albums OF All Time, we figured why not dive into our collection of live albums. Grab a cold one or six, open your ears real wide and see if you agree with the CGCM’s Greatest Live Albums Of All Time! As always this is the opinion of your esteemed expert hosts (how did I even type that with a straight face?) but as always art is subjective and we encourage you to share your own personal top 6 live albums of all time.

But of course we always start with the Canadian Geeks’ Dick in the Dirt tracks. Each of the hosts select one song that is rocking their world.

The Meister’s D.I.T.D Track – Nightbreak – Nightbreak

Wallygator’s D.I.T.D Track – Rise – Emyna

 

CGCM Podcast – Episode 27 – Balls To The Wall!

Copy of Copy of Balls

The Canadian Geeks return for the first ever “Signature Six-Pack SerieZ” where we focus all our attention on a single artist. Still riding high on the recent “Dirkschneider – Back To The Roots Part 2 Tour”, the Geeks have chosen Udo Dirkschneider eras of Accept to focus on.

Both hosts each take turns playing their favourite 6 pack of Accept songs, share stories about the band, some concert memories both old and new. Oh and they drink some beer but by episode 27 you probably already know that.

ds2Featured on a special “Dick In The Dirt” Track, the guys decided to each play a song from the support band Elm Street. Elm Street from Australia assaulted some ears and earned at least a couple new Canadian fans playing a great set including songs from their 2016 album “Knock Em Out…With A Metal Fist!”. Wallygator spins “Heart Racer” and the Meister selects “Heavy Mental”.

So grab a cold one, or six and be prepared to bang your head to one of the greatest heavy metal bands of all time. Balls to the Wall people!

 

CGCM Podcast Episode 26 – 2017 Revisited

Copy of Copy of Episode 27 Revisited

The Canadian Geeks return for another episode of fun and frolic. After recording their massive 2017 End Of Year Episode the guys decided that there was so much great rock released in 2017 that one episode simply could not cover it. They kept discovering more new and killer rock so here we have Episode 26 – 2017 “Regurgitated” er, ahhh “REVISITED”. The boys each select 6 more killer tracks from 2017.
