Canadian Grooves

Just a Tribute: Tenacious D’s top tracks

“Best show ever!” – Kevin

“Not even top 50.” – Chris Sarre

The MVP tonight was Kevin from Canadian Grooves for going superdeeeeeep with his Tenacious D picks!  “I am not worthy!” said Meat.  Indeed Kevin did dig deep into the obscure for his excellent list.  Between the three of us, you will find a terrific balance of deep cuts and mainstream hits.  All of which, you should check out!

Thank you boys for a great show tonight!  If all goes according to plan I’ll be going live again next Friday for another Show & Tell episode!

Tenacious D’s Nigel Tufnel Top Ten Tracks…tonight on the LeBrain Train

The LeBrain Train: 2000 Words or More with Mike & Friends

Episode 110 – Nigel Tufnel Top Ten-acious D Tracks

This is just a “tribute”!  Well, no, not really.  But it will be great fun regardless.  Thank Uncle Meat, as he arranged this week’s episode and guest himself.  Tonight, Meat and Kevin from Canadian Grooves are joining me to talk about the notoriously tenacious comedy-rock duo of Jack Black and Kyle Gass.  The greatest band in the world?  Perhaps — which is why we’re doing Top 11 lists of this band’s greatest songs.

The duo met in 1986 and started playing gigs 1994, with their name a reference to the basketball term “tenacious defence”.  Their demo led to the short lived TV series, befriending Dave Grohl, and eventually their debut album in 2001.  It’s been pure legend since!

Sourcing tunes from their four albums, many singles, HBO TV show and more, you can count of lots of laughs tonight.  As usual, you’ll want to catch this live!

Tee Bone Rocks the LeBrain Train All Night Long

Thanks to the Kevin from Canadian Grooves for co-hosting tonight!  Our special guest was Mr. Tee Bone Erickson, who has provided all the theme music for the LeBrain Train and Scotch on the Rocks over the past year.  Tee Bone has a long history with writing and recording tunes, going back to Thunder Bay’s Current River with Deke.  Fast forward a few decades, and Tee Bone has found new creative license writing songs for the Community.  And now you can buy them on Bandcamp.  Yes, you can now have “Open Door Piss” and “HBD to the Mad Metal Man” in your mp3 library!

We quizzed Tee Bone on inspiration, process, and hardware.  We saw some guitars and heard some riffs performed for us live.  Most of all — we laughed!

Look for a special “meaty” Cinco de Listo from a certain uncle….

Thanks for joining us if you did!  If you didn’t — watch below!

Episode 93 – The Tunes of Tee Bone

Special guest:  Tee Bone Erickson!

For those of you who know and love the hits of Tee Bone, this show is for you!  To celebrate the launch of his brand new Bandcamp site, Tee Bone will be our special guest tonight.  That’s right!  You can now buy high quality downloads of Tee Bone’s original songs on Bandcamp!  Together they make for a white-hot nine track EP.

Joining me will be the Canadian Groover himself, Kevin AKA Buried On Mars.  Kevin was the first to download Tee Bone’s music and like me, he’s a huge fan.  Together we shall appreciate our special guest Tee Bone, and his growing discography of quirky catchy tunes with clever comical lyrics!  We’ll chat about the tunes and what inspired them, and you will hear a whole bunch too!

Get ready to “drink water from the hose” before you take an “open door piss”!  Show up early to see a very cool Aero-unboxing….
