shows // Lady Squalor
Lady Squalor is a music based show with chat/informative elements. Presented by Deena, a Canadian living in Glasgow whom DJ's regularly, 'Weirdo Wednesday' at Nice n Sleazy, 'Born To Bouffant' at Mono, and 'All Yesterdays' Parties' at The old Hairdressers. Djing previously as part of the duo, The Sophisticated Boom Boom, with Claudia Nova (of Aggi Doom, The Witching Hour) and each week at Soul Supper Club at The Art School with Duncan Havey (of Button Up).
Playing her favourite records, including but not limited to; rock and roll, rhythm and blues, psych, garage, girl groups, new wave, world folk, punk, soul, etc... Each show has a theme to connect the genres and at times challenge the listener. As well, expect collaborative conversations through music with some of Glasgow's best DJs and bands; each week a guest will be invited in to share their thoughts and tracks on the theme.
"I love records and learning about, and sharing all kinds of music. I have found moments of merits in all genres, but acknowledge there is a lot of really crappy music out there. I used to work in a small established record shop in Toronto until it shut, and now support other peoples record stores through my fiscal irresponsibility and volunteer at Oxfam Music in Glasgow. Often the only thing I bother to research in my travels is where the records stores are; letting those purchases and conversations set the remainder of my time there. Thus I have geeked out properly about music in Toronto, Montreal, New York, Jamaica, Japan (both through visiting in 2007 and living there for a year in 2009/2010), Paris, Korea and here in Glasgow. As a result, I have been able to scour records from minimally pressed genres such as Canadian Garage from the mid 60s to now, Asian/Eurasian rock and roll and psych, and girl group oddities and hits. Unique to this opportunity, I would be able to share many of the records that I relish listening to in my bedroom but don't often get the chance to play on nights out; for example my 1920s new Orleans jazz recordings, exotica, sleazy soundtracks or general glorious weird things."
For more music fun and facts, in between shows, Deena regularly posts the tracks she listens to and loves, on her popular blog, found at TheSophisticatedBoomBoom.tumblr.com.

it's only music. (all music no chat format today)
I'm back. With nothing to say but a lot to play. 2 hours of solid music. This, that, and everything in between; More genres than you can shake a tail to.
The set starts with local favourite Ultimate Thrush's 'Ladyfinger' before taking flight to faraway places with a couple of top notch Sublime Frequencies releases, then Lizzy Mercier Descouix's Hard-Boiled Babe kicks off a femme heavy set of variations on Pop, ending with Everlasting Love, including favourites new and old, from near and far. Changing up from that with 'Who Planted Thorns in Miss Alice's Garden' by Tom Northcott, a Canadian Folk/Rock/Psych artist from the 60s and 70s, the set then gets a bit wild. Not nearly as eclectic as my taste or record collection, but definitely displaying a side of my at home listening with... The Monks into The Wipers into The Poles into Bob Log into The Go! Team into DJ Shadow into Jurassic 5 into Kelis into Janelle Monae into The Staple Singers into Donald Byrd into The Serendipity Singers into Kaada and lastly Rosie & The Originals. The Lady Pop mix in the first half is the most cohesive bit, the tracks thereafter are inspired by my contributions to conversations with other people, the mix is one I was having with myself at the time. Chopping and changing, without me in the studio to add charm.
Tune in from 10-12.
Thank you, Deena x

Sharing is caring and Glasgow musicians love you, but they love themselves more, so the independent music scene is filled with honest expressions of individuals, sharing collective ideals and playing different sounds.
What quickly became apparent to me when moving here the summer of 2010, was how much music is being made and played here. While audiophiles fill the hours with conversations and platters spinning, among their collections can often be found contributions from Glasgow bands. Any night of the week people are spoilt for choice for live music
Countless bands, lovingly released by like-minded individuals or through their own initiatives, have recorded a wealth of music to be explored.
This episode is just the tip of the iceberg for a project documenting the loose history of now, the past decade of Glasgow music, audibly and visually. Expect books, records, dvds,, etc… created and informed through the community.
Chris ‘Waldo’ Wallace (Smack Wizards/ Plaaydoh/ Stomachs) and I shared some selections to get it started.
If you have anything you would like to contribute or think should be considered, please do not hesitate to email us at GlasgowResearchInc@gmail.com.
This Wednesday, Seconds play live at 1:30am on the dance floor at Nice n Sleazy, at the second last ‘Weirdo Wednesday’, a free for all free for all of records and live music, 11:30pm until 3:00am, soundtrack as selected by Flore and I from our vinyl collections. Come along.x

Thanks again to C☮nal for such a good time in the studio sharing sounds, facts and laughs. You can find us both celebrating Record Store Day at Monorail Records in Mono Glasgow; him as part of one of my favourite bands, W☮rld Peace and me DJing in excellent company. Thereafter, I will be heading along with a different, but undoubtedly equally heavy bag(s) of records, to join the Subcity family for Wax On, Wax Off (http://subcity.org/events/6173/) at The Berkley Suite, 11:30pm - 3am.
The show and playlist are up from last night for you to listen to at your leisure. Played and danced to, but didn't make it onto the air, were the opening songs from our set, Nas feat. Lauryn Hill's 'If I ruled The World' into Strik-e and The Hoodz' 'She'll Chew You Up' and lastly 'Talking Move' by Mo Kolours; all other songs are listed with their labels through the listening link below.
Tune in two weeks time for the next show, which is an 'All Glasgow Special' with Chris "Waldo" Wallace (of Smack Wizards/Stomachs/Plaaydoh).
