Back in the dark recesses of the Vancouver nightlife, there once lived a post-punk spastic collection of artists called U-J3RK5. Steve and Doug try to make sense of it all. **Retraction! It appears that UJ3RK5 was not affiliated with the soundtrack of the film Big Meateater. We’ve tried to remove all reference to the film in this episode, but if there are any more, we apologize. Please disregard.

David Wisdom’s article on Geist

Music featured this week:
Eisenhower & The Hippies – UJ3RK5 EP
The Anglican – UJ3RK5 EP
The Locator – UJ3RK5 EP

And that Canadian classic, “Money City Maniacs” from Sloan’s Navy Blues.
