The calendar has reached the thirteenth, and that means it’s time for Settin’ The Woods on Fire. “Dirty” Dan has brought some western, “Shameless” Amos brought some hillbilly, and they’ve made you up a mess of twangy stew! So loosen your belt, take off your white shirt, and grab an extra stack of napkins, but don’t you dare miss it!
Once again, we’re being visited by some demons in the night! Demons from the pit of hell known as Montreal. One of Canada’s finest psychobilly bands are heading to the left coast, brought to you by the great No Bollocks Events, with a small assist from psychoradio.ca Full details on Facebook
If you didn’t tune into realpunkradio.com this past Thursday night, you missed hearing “Shameless” Amos on the third installment of PsychoZorch Radio Radio, our semi-regular crossover with Zorch Radio! It was Zorch’s 300th episode, and we had some good fun at the immaculate ZorchStudios©. You can check out the archived version of the episode here.
Hey folks, “Shameless” Amos here. As you probably know, I got married this weekend. And while I planned on doing a new episode today, it just hasn’t materialized, and I’m gonna call it off. That goes for both Psycho Radio and Good Rockin’ Tonight. We’ll catch y’all next week with brand new episodes of both shows on their usual days. Have a good one!

The Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekender (VLV) is the world’s biggest rockabilly party and has been running strong for 17 years. As rockabilly enthusiasts from around the world gear up for its 18th incarnation starting on April 2, the festival continues to grow. It has reached the point where it’s simply impossible to see and do everything without a teleporter and/or a time machine. So how are you going to figure out which bands you want to see from the 60+ that will be playing over 4 days? Well, we’ve got a helpful roadmap for you. Next week’s episode of Good Rockin’ Tonight will have as many bands as we can get our hands on to help you decide who you want to see. This will be a monstrous episode, likely to run between 2 and 3 hours, so we’ll be putting it out on Tuesday, March 24 to give you extra time to digest who you want to check out at VLV. Enjoy!
Sorry to announce, but this weekend was a doozy and in all the hubbub, Psycho Radio got overlooked. We’ll have a brand new episode tomorrow.
psychoradio.ca is very proud to present, in conjunction with No Bollocks Events, our good friends from the frozen tundra of Edmonton, the Raygun Cowboys!! The recent signees to Montreal’s Stomp Records will be joined by their new label mates, The Resignators and local Vancouver psychobilly band The Skellys for what promises to be a barn burner of a show. Vancouver’s Funky Winkerbeans will be the site of this mayhem and carnage on Thursday, April 23. Facebook users can RSVP here.
Big Idea is once again bringing the one and only rock ‘n roll madman known as Bloodshot Bill to both Vancouver and Seattle! It’s gonna be a rockin’ time as always, so get your butt down to one of these shows to catch one of the most prolific and unique artists of our times. Internationally known, he’s recorded records for more labels than you can shake a stick at, including Norton, Transistor 66, Squoodge, Flying Saucer, and many more! See you there!!
Ladies and gentlemen, bugs and germs, we’re proud to announce a new member of the psychoradio.ca family, The Saturday Night Huckabuck! Starting January 3, the first Saturday of each month will be the home for our newest show, which will feature rock and roll in all its most wild and primitive forms, from rhythm and blues to proto-garage, jump blues and the roughest, greasiest rockabilly of all time! Get ready to howl with the Huckabuck!
Next week, psychoradio.ca goes Christmas! Monday, December 22, we start out the week with Psycho Xmas Radio, where we go mental with two hours of psychobilly Christmas songs (yes, children, there are such things!). Then, on Tuesday, December 23, Good Rockin’ Tonight will come at you two days early as it transforms into Good Christmas Tonight, with enough Christmas cheer to burn the house down!
After touring the world on the release of 2010’s Signs and Signifiers, Oklahoma’s JD McPherson has become one of the biggest names in roots rock & roll.

The band have released a preview single through their label’s SoundCloud account. Check it out below: Update You can now download “Bossy” for free, along with “Twinkle, Little Christmas Lights” (JD’s fantastic Christmas song from last year), “I Wish You Would” (from Warm Covers), and his crossover breakthrough “North Side Gal” as part of The Rounder Records Collection.
The world’s greatest horror rock band, the brothers Calabrese, are dropping a new record! If their last few efforts are any indication, this one should be a doozy. Calabrese came stomping out of Phoenix, AZ in 2003, dragging their giant, stomping riffs, unbelievably catchy melodies and fantastic sing-along choruses with them. This new record will be their sixth, and it’s available for preorder at Spookshow Records. You can check out the title track here:
The Blackrats have been one of the most exciting new bands to come out of Canada for their entire short history. Their ability to mix horror with r&b and keep the house rockin’ is astounding and stories of their live shows are remarkable throughout their home town of Halifax, Nova Scotia. Hallowe’en 2014 marked the release of their newest album, their second full-length, entitled Shake Your Brain. It’s available now from the band themselves or through Tacoma, Washington’s Splatterhouse Wreckords. Preview or buy the album here.
