Mulligan Stew Sept 16th 2023-Craig Northey brings Odds: Crash the Time Machine

Crash the Time Machine The Odds 7th album has been released. The basic Odds lineup of Craig Northey, Pat Steward, Murray Atkinson and Doug Elliott are joined by the 5th Odd – Steven Page.

This is songwriting at a very high level,  then taken even higher by players who are truly gifted.

I’m so glad that these guys got back together again after a hiatus from 2000-2007.

You can hear multiple influences in each and every track.

They’ve backed Warren Zevon, they wrote and played the soundtrack for  Kids in the Hall Film Brain Candy and their TV series Death Comes to town, toured with and played with The Tragically Hip and Barenaked Ladies, wrote music for Corner Gas.

Crash the Time Machine deals with religion, the days we’re all living in and several songs in memory of their friend Spirit of the West leader/writer John Mann.

The song is Somehow in a Dream. The Waterboys are mentioned. As Craig tells us ..

John told me that in his last hours, he’d like to have someone play “Whole of the Moon”

The complete interview can be heard on the Mulligan Stew Podcast and seen on the Terry Daid Mulligan YouTube Channel.

We also salute BB King on his birthday and remember Motown songwriter Norman Whitfield, who along with his writing partner Barret Strong, left a remarkable legacy of memorable hits.

Ain’t to proud to beg – War – I’m Losing You – Poppa was a Rolling Stone, Ain’t too proud to beg. and many more.  We play Heard it through the Grapevine.

And a special segment on bassist Richard Davis who passed away Sept 6 at 93.

The man played on over 600 albums. From Miles Davis and  Duke Ellington to Bruce Springsteen,

Laura Nyro and Van Morrison ( he’s the bass player  on Astral Weeks)

New music from Wide Mouth Mason, Bros. Landreth, and Rolling Stones. Cannonball Adderley brings Roebuck “Pops” Staples to the Stew.

A tonne of fun
