Welcome back to another weekly podcast of The Rebel Beat!
First off, yes, we know that there are a few glitchy errors with the podcast audio this week. There was a temporary problem with CKUT’s online archives, so you’ll hear a few blips here and there, but rest assured, it won’t ruin your enjoyment of this week’s show (and it’s only in the first 10 minutes).
On the show this week, we continue a series we started back in January, looking at radical record labels. The first in this series was a retrospective on G7 Welcoming Committee records (Episode 044). This time around, our focus is Rebel Time records, an amazing punk label out of Hamilton, ON. They’ve put out some of the most important Canadian and Quebecois political punk releases over the last decade, from bands like Broadcast Zero, Action Sédition, and The Class Assassins. And they’ve even started to look across the pond, bringing amazing bands over here from France, England, and Ireland.
We spoke here with Randy, one of the co-founders of the label, about everything from combatting sexism in the punk scene to the tragic death of Todd Serious from The Rebel Spell last year.
Also on the show, we speak about the ongoing Black Lives Matter-Toronto camp-out in front of Toronto Police headquarters, and play a couple tunes from their amazing new mixtape!
And finally, if you want to show your love for The Rebel Beat and our mothership at CKUT radio, please take a minute to vote for us as best radio show, best podcast, and best radio station in the Best of Montreal 2016 poll!
