Mulligan Stew Sept 4th 2021- Special Guest Ed Robertson of BareNaked Ladies

Our Special long weekend guest is Ed Robertson from Barenaked Ladies.

‘Detour de Force,’ is Barenaked Ladies’ 16th studio album.

Over the course of 33 years, the Toronto quartet has sold 15 million records worldwide and built up an arsenal of hits such as “If I Had $1,000,000,” “One Week,” “Pinch Me” and “The Big Bang Theory Theme.”

Ed Robertson, Jim Creeggan, Tyler Stewart, and Kevin Hearn are widely acknowledged as one of the best live acts on the planet, BNL has won eight Juno Awards and was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 2018.  Great!  Fine!  Bang ON.  I’ve got another word that I believe defines  The Ladies – “admirable.”

Here’s the thing.  These guys do NOT sit back on their past hits and success. They all continue to write and refine their songs, vocals, and performing.  They push each other to be even better.

Case in point. Three songs from the 14 on Detour de Force

You’ll certainly hear Flip/Good Life/Roll Out

But the  three tracks that show the craftsmanship of BNL are

New Disaster – deals with the dark cloud of snarly social opinions.

Paul Chambers – Yup. A song about the legendary bassist who played on and supported Miles Davis etc on Kind of Blue.  Jim Creeggan makes him a metaphor.

And then Kevin Hearn contributes Internal Dynamo the last track that starts like Pink Floyd, hangs a hard left into Rage Against The Machine territory, and finishes like something from The Beatles White Album.

Those are the three tracks we’ll play for you on Saturdays Mulligan Stew @ckuaradio.  The complete interview with Ed Robertson can be heard on The MulliganStew Podcast

And Hey- the playlist will absolutely get you rocking..
