Pulling deeply from the dusty rack, DJ Andy Bargerstock unveils the music of 1999 super-fringe group, Eurphoria (photos), featuring Geddy Lee (Rush), Roy Babbington (Soft Machine), Anne Dudley (Art of Noise), and gospel singer Juliette Roberts. However, it was Toronto guitarist Ken Ramm who led the way with his curious blend of oozing, loopy slide guitar. Later, in 2004 they released CD Precious Way with Tina Dico (former Zero 7 songstress). After launching this week's show with three tracks from this fringe classic, DJ Andy goes retro with Nick Drake, Eddie Vedder and "Norwegian Wood" from The Beatles Chillout Classic CD.
You will hear a curious blend of female singer-songwriters including SF's Loquat, NYC's Jaymay, and Denmark's Tina Dico from her Notes CD. In the chill-out segment, you will drift away on the ethereal sounds of Italy's The Dining Rooms, Ben Cox's Eno-like "Oh Water", and a new endorphin-producing band called Supreme Beings of Leisure. Late in the show, the Cowboy Junkies return for an encore! Encore??? Isn't every week of Fringe Toast like the encore you hope that never ends? Tune in and let the bliss flow.
