It’s that time of year again! Mosaic 2013 is about to kick off in Regina in JUST OVER A WEEK!
And to celebrate the Mosaic tradition, Operation Manatee is going to go ALL WORLD ON YOUR ASSES!!! And ears… mostly your ears… The idea, if successful, is to play a band or two from as many pavilions that will be showcased as part of the Mosaic festival. There are 21 pavilions, so we might have to extend it over two shows but we’re going to give you a cultural taste of music from around the world. Scottish metal? First nations dance music? Yep… things you’ll hear by tuning into the Operation Manatee Mosaic special!

Earlier this year I blogged about albums I was looking forward to and Magneta Lane was on my list, albeit only plans for an EP. Well, it’s been out for a while, it’s TOTALLY FANTASTIC and something everyone should buy and enjoy multiple times. But here’s their new video for the lead single “Burn”. Again, the track is really good but the video has such a positive message for young girls. Enjoy and comment below on your feelings.
In this show, Cory and Chris explore new territory. Cory is winging it, which makes him uncomfortable. Chris refuses to wear pants, which also makes Cory uncomfortable. They even played a couple of vinyl records. We’re not sure what vinyl is, but it’s heavy and Chris seems to like it.
First of all, thanks to Chris for the really nice post on Friday!
Second of all, yes… the inevitable has happened. The ball has become chained, the noose has become tightened… um, the goose has been cooked…? However else you want to say it, I am now hitched… I figure the mother of my daughter, the co-signor to all my loans and debts should also become my wife… the Sith to my Jedi (maybe… somedays…)
The point? I’ve been REALLY busy for the last 4-5 days and I’m not sure what kind of music I’ll manage to throw together for your listening enjoyment tonight. Come, tune in tonight at 11:00 pm and see just how scattered we can REALLY be!
With Chris out sick or fighting zombies or something, Cory fires it up at Regina Community Radio with some pop stuff, rock stuff, punk stuff and maybe even a soulful rendition of Ol’ Man River. Or maybe not.
The flu is a bitch… Being all “flu-y”… making people sick. Well, making Chris sick anyways. Cory will be venturing into unknown territory and delivering a solo episode of Operation Manatee tonight, from 11:00 to midnight.
What could happen? What could go wrong?? Famous last words or brash sensationalist statements to make you listen? Hey, if it works for Fox News it HAS to work for us, right?
Cory discovers a super-cool calypso artist called Kobo Town, of all things, and gives a brief overview.
“Jumbie in the Jukebox” generally isn’t the kind of album I’d pick up on my own. I rarely browse through music sections outside of my mainstays; rock, heavy metal, punk. But every once in a while I listen to something, usually on a recommendation (or threat) from a friend, that makes me re-think my listening strategy. Kobo Town’s new album definitely falls into this category… and no, I wasn’t threatened. Continue reading “Kobo Town – Jumbie in the Jukebox”
Join us tonight as we go live from 11:00 pm to midnight on 91.3 FM in Regina or use whatever means necessary (ie, see “How Can I Listen?” section).
Yes, it is Chris’ actual birthday today. We won’t dwell too much on the birthday shenanigans, but send him some congratulations on turning the big 3-0 either by commenting here or tweeting him @carliermusic. IT’LL BE A PARRRR-TAY!
Cory and Chris lose their urge to smash things and manage to play a steady mix of old and new tunes from a variety of styles – like Thunderheist’s crazy electronic dancey whatever that is.
Luckily, Cory didn’t break the CJTR feed last week so here we come again.. another Tuesday night, another Operation Manatee coming for your ear-holes!
Last week we got a little electronic-happy. Not that it’s a bad thing, but too much electro makes Cory something-something… every intent was being prepared to bring the hammer down this week, to be loud, abrasive and unashamed!
But that’s not likely about to happen. Tune in tonight (or tomorrow’s recording) to find out just how it all mashes together!
In this show, Cory and Chris play a selection of hard-hitting, ear-bleeding rock like Grade 8 to modern hip hop such as Cadence Weapon and dubstep from Borgore. Also, Cory laments a little over the loss of a band.
Yes, yes, we’re back! Every Tuesday night from 11:00 PM to midnight, Chris and Cory will lead you on a small musical journey through some of our favorite songs to some new hits to some just plain, weird noises.
This week will be an experiment. We’ve always wanted to try to record the show so those of you who aren’t night owls can listen as well. There might be a breakthrough and we’re not sure if it will work in glorious fashion or take down the whole radio station. You’ll have to listen to find out!
……or of course, if it works, then listen later… (cough).
