Canadian 80s New Wave legends Martha Johnson and Mark Gane of Martha & The Muffins join me on No Sleep 'til Sudbury this week to chat about their new record, called Marthology: In and Outtakes.  

Martha and Mark are wonderful people with great stories. Topics discussed include The Wizard of Oz, seeing The Beatles live, how limitations create style, the time Chris Isaak wrote a song in a closet during a party, and the fascinating reason the chorus of "Echo Beach" is heard only at the end of the song.   


Martha’s playlist:

Laura Mvula – Green Garden

Bob Marley – Waiting in Vain

The Beach Boys – God Only Knows

Judy Garland – Over the Rainbow

The Beatles – Eight Days A Week


Mark’s playlist:

The Beatles – Tomorrow Never Knows

Jimi Hendrix – Voodoo Child (Slight Return)

Steve Reich – Music For 18 Musicians

Jo Stafford – The Nearness of You

King Crimson – 21st Century Schizoid Man
