Here are all of cbinseoul's jams.
by Carlos Santana
I've always liked just how different a guitar player Carlos Santana is. Fusing together all those influences, he's always had a great band and what a great percussion/rhythm section. Good times...
Jammed: 24th Sep 2015
by King King
Just the right balance between keys and guitar. Good, solid rhythm section, just keeping it down. Frontman's from Glasgow, Alan Nimmo. He can carry a tune, as they say...
Jammed: 22nd Sep 2015
by The Who
@DavidAnderson has jammed 'Gimme Shelter' and in the comments there's mention of how great an intro it is. I whole heartedly agree. By coincidence (or is it great minds thinking alike ) the theme for this week's radio show is "The Intro...". I'll be playing my jam, Welcome To The Jungle, Arcade Fire's Wake Up (live at Glastonbury), The Sweet's Ballroom Blitz, and we'll start the show with Stevie Wonder's Superstition...I love a good intro ;)
Jammed: 21st Sep 2015
by Stone Sour
A friend was telling me about his son's taste in music and how he'd been playing guitar for a year or so. Turns out the kid's a huge metal head, but I'm sure that's not the correct genre ^^ We got on to the subject of Slipknot and how much the kid's really into them (think blaring from the bedroom and all that good stuff), and I mentioned Stone Sour - Cory Taylor's 'other band' and what did his son think of them? Not that much as it turns out... Anyway, not a huge fan of either myself BUT I do like this one done acoustically. Taylor's got a great stage presence, can carry a tune, and has a lot of strings to his bow.
Jammed: 18th Sep 2015
by The Flaming Lips
I saw them live a couple of years ago and was blown away. Many other great tunes but this one still stands out from the rest for me.
Jammed: 9th Sep 2015
by The Lemonheads
It's our 13th wedding anniversary on September 7th. Who said we'd never make it? One of the joys of long car rides with the Mrs and the dog is jamming your (well, mostly my) favourite tunes. She's quite fond of The Lemonheads and, well, she's awesome :) Thanks for putting up with me (and all the Jams) and here's to many more
Jammed: 6th Sep 2015
by Radio Moscow
Keeping on the theme with some bands who like to 'jam', this one from Radio Moscow's Brain Cycles LP. I remember reading a while back that the singer/guitarist actually wanted the band to be an instrumental outfit and I think that notion really shines through. Cool tune from a really good band. #jam #band #radio #moscow
Jammed: 2nd Sep 2015
by The Black Crowes
More dog-walking related jams. Ozzy and I were out for a walk late Saturday night. About 28c or so, a slight breeze, but no cats or other furrry friends to report of. Perfect weather for a bit of stroll and some jams. Then the album version of this came on as we were walking and I remembered just how great The Black Crowes were as a studio band, but some of their live stuff is just simply superb. They really know how to Jam! Check out both Rich and Chris Robinson's solo albums (CR's first album is really good but after that a bit same-same), the drummer Steve Gorman started 'Trigger Hippy' who released a great album last year, as did ex-BC guitarist Marc Ford.
Jammed: 31st Aug 2015
by Public Service Broadcasting
I've not signed up the 'other side' just yet, but will do so in the near future. I think I've still got some TIMJ-ing to do first ;) New song from PSB from 'The Race For Space', one of my favourite albums of the year so far. That's 'Seoul Tower' in the picture if you're wondering. It's about a 10-minute walk from where we live. Love to walk the dog having this album on my headphones on the hike up there (and back).
Jammed: 28th Aug 2015
by Raymond Meade (Ft. Justin Currie)
More memiors...since we're getting near the end of TIMJ. I've been lucky enough to have my own weekly spot on a national radio station here in Seoul for almost 2 years. Every Wednesday from 5-6pm on 'Cut Me Some Slack' I play 5 songs from different artists. As time has moved on, to keep things fresh and engaging for me (and hopefully the listener) the show is tied to a theme I put together. Of course, we've had the bass player episode, bands from the Pacific North West, the science episode, the Jangly Guitar episode (where I can't say Rickenbacker...for a whole hour), and many more. Anyway, it's been great fun and I always try to make it an entertaining, informative, fun hour of tunes and chat. This week's the Glasgow Episode and I'll feature this track I heard earlier this year. Justin Currie does a great job on the vocals, a nice wee guitar solo, and the Cairn String Quartet adding the finishing touches to the song. Bravo!
Jammed: 24th Aug 2015
by Kevin McDermott Orchestra
Probably one of my favourite Glasgow bands and I don't know why they didn't 'make it'?...they were brilliant. I remember going into HMV (or was it Virgin?) on Union Street, in Glasgow city centre to buy the album 'Mother Nature's Kitchen' and then just having it on repeat-repeat-repeat...what a blast and such a great band.
Jammed: 19th Aug 2015
by The Forty Days
I guess since we're getting near the end of the road with TIMJ, I thought I'd share something a bit more personal. Since I've been in Korea, I've been lucky enough to record 3 albums of original material (although none since 2010 - long story). This band, 3 Canadian's and myself, was such a great experience, it's hard not to go on and on about it... We played over 100 shows together, would play anywhere, anytime, and by the end of our time together we really were on to something. However, it was time to move on. I loved playing this song and I still don't think I've ever heard anything like it. I hope you enoy it...
Jammed: 15th Aug 2015
by Baby Strange
Some good, new music from this Glasgow trio. I actually wanted to play "California Sun" to continue the meteorological thing from my last jam (Glasgow bands do the best tunes about the weather ^^ and it's a cracking tune too), but it wouldn't play here. So, instead, here's their newest song. Great tune. Mad video. Enjoy!
Jammed: 1st Aug 2015
by Robert Plant & Jimmy Page (acoustic live)
The monsoon season has finally arrived (it's taken a break this morning though) and I've just read the Jimmy Page interview in the paper. Thought this'd be quite appropriate...
Jammed: 26th Jul 2015
by The London Souls
A cool sounding band that I heard recently. I really like this "jam in the van' thing too. Plenty of bands to check out on their YT page https://www.youtube.com/user/JamintheVan/videos
Jammed: 19th Jul 2015
by Peter Gabriel
I played at an open mic night last night for the first time in yonks...the guy who I accompanied for a few songs (about 5 of his own songs) added a cover of Here Comes The Sun and this one from Peter Gabriel. I thought he did a pretty good job...and Pete's wasn't too shabby either ^^
Jammed: 13th Jul 2015
by Buddy Guy / Susan Tedeschi / Derek Trucks
Looking forward to playing a couple of Buddy Guy tracks (from 2008's Skin Deep album) on the radio this week. He has a new album out at the end of July, same producer as Skin Deep, so expect more of the same...in a good way that is. Could only get a clip for this track but check it out on Youtube here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5miplogHBI I'll also be playing a couple of tracks from The Last Internationale and Neil Young's Act Of Love (I jammed that a while back). Super stuff...
Jammed: 5th Jul 2015
by Tijuana Bibles
New music from Glasgow. Good to see (and hear) that they're doing well playing the festival circuit this summer. A friend of mine has done a couple of the band's videos and also works with 'Tenement TV'. I like this sound...
Jammed: 21st Jun 2015
by Cowboy Junkies
A brief conversation I had last week with a friend was about The Cowboy Junkies. We were lamenting The Trinity Sessions album, how great it sounded, and we wondered what the band were doing now? I also think that the Pale Sun Crescent Moon is a fine album and perhaps one that's a bit overlooked? Margo Timmins just sounds amazing...
Jammed: 15th Jun 2015
by JD McPherson
I heard @drumnbass 's latest jam from someone new to me -JD McPherson, yesterday. So, I did a little digging around (who doesn't love the internet , early on a Sunday morning?) and the more I heard, the more I really liked his sound. This is a great performance from Letterman and I really recommend checking out more of his music if you like what you hear.
Jammed: 8th Jun 2015
by Johnny Rivers (with the Wrecking Crew)
I recently read that there was a documentary coming out about 'The Wrecking Crew'. As I'm always looking for something interesting, different, or even a bit bonkers to talk about for the radio show I co-host, I dug a bit deeper into who they were. I'd heard of Hal Blaine (being a drummer myself), but the rest of them were not that well known to me. Moreover, when you read the list of songs they played on, it's pretty damn impressive. If you read the description notes on the Youtube clip, he gives a great account of what it was all about. And here's me thinking Johnny Rivers was just Mr Secret Agent Man?
Jammed: 2nd Jun 2015
by Neil Young & Pearl Jam
Couldn't find another version of this song that would play without being restricted (straightheads!), so settled for this cracking live version. Once you get over the very (very) shaky camerawork, just let Neil take over...
Jammed: 10th May 2015
I came across this funky duo when I was putting together a show a few weeks ago. On that show I featured a couple of tunes (one old one new) from Andrew Combs and lo and behold it turns out that his backing band are 'Steelism'. The more I listened to their sound the more I liked it. One guy on guitar (from the US) and the other on lap steel (from the UK - go figure!)...a band to look out for. Hope you enjoy it.
Jammed: 3rd May 2015
by The Vintage Caravan
Some psychedelic space rock from Iceland to start the week (there's a sentence I never thought I'd be using). TVC have a new album out in May and I'm looking forward to hearing more from them. RAWK!
Jammed: 27th Apr 2015
by The Phoenix Foundation
Next week's radio show has an Antipodean theme. With some John Butler Trio to kick things off and then Hoodoo Gurus closing the show with 1000 Miles Away. However, I saved the best bit for these guys from Wellington. Such a cool sound and definitely worth checking out their mosdt recent album.
Jammed: 12th Apr 2015
by Gram Parsons
Last week, on the weekly radio show that I guest on, I played a couple of tunes by a singer that was new to me - Andrew Combs. He also has a backing band called 'Steelism' who are also well worth checking out. Anyway, the whole pedal steel guitar sound that Combs uses so well reminded me of this one by GP and ELH. Enjoy!
Jammed: 5th Apr 2015
by Walker Lukens
Came across the splendidly monikered Walker Lukens when I was looking for ideas for this week's radio show. I was actually going to play one of his newer songs (which also sounds great) and the live version is really good. However, when I was reading some interviews he gave a couple of years ago, the story behind the video to this song resonated with me. He'd moved from Texas to try his luck in New York City. He was teaching ESL English (as well as writing/performing) and a couple of Japanese students of his made this video for him. That's the long story short...enjoy the jam!
Jammed: 29th Mar 2015
by The View
From the aptly-named "Cheeky For A Reason" album, these young pups from the City of Discovery really sound way older than they are. They have a new song (and a new album in June) out this month, produced by Albert Hammond from The Strokes which once again really changes the band's sonic dynamics. I think Kyle Falconer's vocals and the guitars on this track really stand out. Good stuff...
Jammed: 14th Mar 2015
by The Trash Can Sinatras
A couple of weeks back I read that The Trash Can Sinatras were working on a new album. Looking forward to that as I always enjoyed the material they put out over the years. An underrated band, perhaps more successful in the US than in the UK(?), but songs that are lyrically creative, and played with a real sense of purpose. First try at this but let's see if the hash tag works. Enjoy the song... #janglyguitars
Jammed: 8th Mar 2015
by The Joy Formidable
Putting this week's show together and came up with the theme of 'band dynamics'. Both musically and vocally, I was looking for something that would really set itself apart and then I remembered The Joy Formidable. Should be played LOUD :)
Jammed: 22nd Feb 2015
Kind of a one hit wonder, but what a great pop tune. It's got the hook, the latin, jazzy (are they marimbas?) keys in the intro and the solo, and at 3 minutes and change it just leaves you wanting that wee bit more...Jam It!
Jammed: 15th Feb 2015
by The Black Box Revelation
Some cool rock'n' roll from Belgium's Black Box Revelation. I think they're working on a new album for this year, but this song's a good 'un. I think what seperates from the other duos (Stripes - a bit of a novelty. Keys- forgot what they actually started out to be. That's not to say they haven't made some music in the past) is they have more of an ear for a hook. There's more rhythm in the songs and I really like the nod to the Brit bands of the 60's and 70's. Enjoy!
Jammed: 8th Feb 2015
by The Waterboys
Kinda following the thread from my last jam (World Party- Ship Of Fools) with one of the songs from the new Waterboys album. Got a nice shuffle groove, the ever-present fiddle, and a bit of crunch on the guitar...nice!
Jammed: 26th Jan 2015
by World Party
So, last week I was thinking of some ideas for this week's radio show and settled on a theme of working around 'The Waterboys'. What I like to do (most of the time at least) is have some kind of connection between the 3 artists (we usually play 5 songs in total). As The Waterboys have just released a new album (think more straight forward rock/blues and definitely not Fisherman's Blues style) that would be the centrepiece, but I needed something to top and tail it. That light bulb moment (!) and the names 'Karl Wallinger' and 'World Party' popped into my head. I've hardly stopped listening to World Party since and I'm revelling in the genius that is Mr. Wallinger. I'm struggling to think of a finer pop song of the times (then or now), so I thought I'd share. PS - Terry Reid's version of "The Whole Of The Moon" will close the show. Enjoy :)
Jammed: 19th Jan 2015
by The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer
Another great Canadian band for TIMJ. I came across this Vancouver based duo quite a while ago and really enjoyed their album last year 'A Real Fine Mess'. The album was a real change in sound, venturing into new sonic landscapes for what is primarily a blues duo of harp/ vocals (Shawn) and guitar/percussion (Matthew). However, I decided to go with one of their earlier tracks just to share their earlier sound, then folks can check out the new stuff if they like it. Does that make sense? I hope so lol...enjoy arguably the best named band you've heard this year ^^
Jammed: 5th Jan 2015
by Trigger Hippy
Digging this album from US'supergroup' Trigger Hippy'. Formed by Black Crowes drummer Steve Gorman & featuring Joan Osborne and Jackie Green on vocals...it has a really nice, mellow vibe to it. Rise Up Singing has that smooth, laid back shuffle going on, great duo sharing the vocals and the band right in the pocket...One to take us into the New Year. Cheers!
Jammed: 30th Dec 2014
by July Talk
Hey...it's my birthday today (Dec 22) and I even gave it a 'tartan' background. Really digging this Canadian band...that nice balance between the him and her vocals...some cool guitar licks and an awesome rhythm section. Merry Xmas everyone :)
Jammed: 22nd Dec 2014
I've been putting the final touches to my radio show tomorrow (less glam than it sounds ^^)...and settled on a theme of "Glasgow". I'll be featuring (old and new)tunes from Simple Minds and The Silencers, as well as this belter from Texas. I really lliked their debut album "Southside" and the couple of albums that followed it...a good, blues, rock, country, soul feel to the music...and plenty of slide guitar. What's not to like...
Jammed: 25th Nov 2014
by The Twilight Sad
With this acoustic session, you're getting 3 for the price of 1. Bargain! Their new album 'Nobody Wants To Be Here and Nobody Wants To Leave' was released a few weeks ago and is definitely worth a listen. They're also from Kilsyth, where my mum has lived for the past 20 years. It's not a very rock'n'roll kinda place...but then again... Tenement TV also features some great artists that you might not be aware of. They produce some nice work too.
Jammed: 18th Nov 2014
by Ozzy Osbourne
So, how does this work? I'm the proud owner of a Border Collie, called "Ozzy". He was found abandoned outside a subway station, here in Seoul, South Korea. He was about a year old or so at the time and has been with us since Feb 2008. Why call him Ozzy? Well, he's definitely unique and once you've met him you're unlikely to forget him in a hurry. He's a bit friendlier towards bats though ;) #Dogweek
Jammed: 24th Oct 2014
by Vintage Trouble
"Lord, have mercy on my soul..." Yeah, we may have heard it all before, but there's something refreshingly retro about this band. You take all those James Brown moves, add a super-tight rhythm section (does he fine them like JB did, I wonder?), and a nice, slightly gritty, rock-sounding guitar and you've got yourself a beat combo. Rawk on...
Jammed: 14th Oct 2014
by Brownout Presents - Brown Sabbath
This is probably my favourite Sabbath tune but I had no idea what this was going to sound like. Really glad to have found this (new to me) jam and it's been getting well played over the past few days. If you're feeling like some funk-jazz-Latino-soul-psychedelic-metal music then this'll do the trick for you. If not...I can't imagine that? :)
Jammed: 7th Oct 2014
by Gary Clark Jr.
Staying with a bit of a 'Texas' theme for the new jam with some Gary Clark Jr. This is from 'Crossroads' (not the soap opera or indeed featuring Ralph Macchio ;) and I do like seeing the two-drummer band. Something that you just don't see enough of these days (OK, I'm a bit biased, being a drummer myself). His new album "Live" sounds great and I think it's the way his music (and the genre in general) should be heard - Live.
Jammed: 30th Sep 2014
Wait! There's more…
