Band Biography
  Buckets Of are a rock/country/art/space 5-piece that formed in Toronto, Canada. The group started when Corey Wells and Meaghan Bent began mashing together country and rock. Meaghan was learning drums and Wells was/is already a gnarly guitarist with Ancestors. The two wrote a handful of catchy ditties and in Summer ’07 synth-ist Katie McLeod (aka: KTron816) joined and filled in the spaces with the flowery imagery and spaciness that would develop the band’s style. The trio formed as Buckets Of. After recording bottomless demos in November ’07 at The Pound in Montreal drummer-turned-bassist Wes Moore (Lunchmeat) became the engine of the music with driving county/punk bass lines. Most recently, Tyler McPherson has joined playing pedal steel and baritone guitar. He adds the class to our stage show, both in dress and musicianship.

Instrumentation
Corey Wells – Guitar, Vocals
Meaghan Bent – Drums, Harmonica, Vocals
Katie McLeod – Keys, Synth, Tambourine, Back Vocals
Wes Moore – Bass, Back Vocals
Tyler McPherson – Pedal Steel, Baritone Guitar

Cory & Wes also play in the Toronto band ‘ancestors’, that is made up of all Chathamites.  This is a heavier, hardcore band. Check them out online here.

Salmonblaster (1996)

July 18, 2009
Salmonblaster
Salmonblaster

Band: Salmonblaster
CD Release: Salmonblaster
Year: 1996
Home: London Ontario
Chatham Connection: Bass player Mat Davis is from Wallaceburg and played guitar for the biggest metal/ thrash band to come from Chatham  (M.A.D. / The Mad)1988-1993.

Members:
Matt Worm – vocals, guitar, fx
Mat Davis – bass, guitar
Brady Parr – drums, backing vocals

Notes:
   Formed in early `94, this intense and adventurous three-piece from London, Ontario recently inked a deal with indie label Liquid Records. Its self-titled debut features 14 songs of dramatic, borderline, schizophrenic stylings from punk sentimentalist rock songs, 80s new wave, trance-like dirges and even experimental noise. “When you dream about being in a band, you dream about being in this band,” wrote ID Magazine.

     The band also played on the ‘Tom Green Show’ before it got picked up by MTV.
     In 1997, The Janet Theory invited the band down to play the CAW Hall in Chatham with them and a few other local bands. This was the biggest underground indie show to hit Chatham’s vibrant scene that year.

   The song ‘Freeway’ took the band to a level most bands would like to sit at. The guys gained  heavy rotation and support from Much Music,  and mainly college radio. Around this time, Nirvana was on top of the music scene which allowed bands of this genre a chance to get in the door.
Discography
self-titled CD and cassette (1995)

Tracks
Betrayal, Blast Off, Brian Jones, Drive It, Floating Eyes, Freeway, Justafish, Pulse, Shooting Stars, Skyrockets, Sugar Rush, The Perfect Fit, Transistors and Turbines, Visionblur

CHRIS HART Sings for the MATADORS (1999)

May 19, 2009
Chris

Chris

Artist: The MATADORS
Release: Matadors (Demo)
Style: Rockabilly
Date: 1999

Chatham Connection: Singer Chris Hart is from Chatham.During his high school years he fronted the punk rock band L.O.T.D. (Lice Of  The Dead). After moving to London, he joined Jivaro Fracus, and later the Matadors. In 2000, Chris began a venture into solo records.

At the time, the band did a mix of covers and original music.

The Matadors are:
Joel Parkins – Guitar
Steve Crew – Drums Linda McCartney – Organ
Jefry Sheppard – Dog House Bass
Chris Hart – Vocals

Tracks:
Ride, Other Man, Hangin’ Round, London Dungeon

These songs were recorded at dB studios in London, Ontario in 1998-ish.
I was lucky enough to catch Chris perform in local punk & rockabilly bands before he moved on to London. Chris’s voice is amazing. He may not like that I think he has an early Danzig/Misfits sound, but he does, and he turned it into his own. Go listen.

Note from chrwradio : Chris Hart went on to record his own record entitled Lonesome Blood. Linda McCartney sadly died that year of cancer related illnesses. Jef and Joel, however, transformed the Matadors into what the original intention of the band was….a youth oriented Satanic outreach and musical revue. The new Matadors also put out a record, aptly named ‘Heartless’, in 2002.

  The new Matadors’ post-Chris sound had a less “erectile dysfuntion” feel to it and a more raw and evil tone.
Tracks: Ride, Other Man, Hangin’ Round, London Dungeon

Chris Hart Gets Ready For His U.S. tour. (2009)

May 7, 2009

Chris Hart
Release:
The Magic Hour
Home:
Chatham-Kent
Resides: London
Year: 2009

I’m from London, Ontario, Canada and I have been writing and performing music for the past 20 years. I’ve dabbled in many styles of music including Punk, Rock-A-Billy, Blues, and Country. Lately I’ve fallin’ into the ambiguous roots or Americana category. Whatever the tag my love of music remains intact. Over the years, I’ve collaborated with various acts, most notably the infamous matadors. It wasn’t until 2001 that I decided to pursue a solo career. My first record “Lonesome Blood” was a dark and brooding country epic. One Critic referred to it as Goth-Country.
  In 2004, I released “Behind the Blue Wall.” This was more of a rock and roll record. Peppered with moments of country. A lot of the songs were very topical. The title track was a protest song about the death of a native protestor named Dudley George. This song raised a lot of eye browns, but managed to receive heavy airplay on CBC.
  The past two years have been very busy. I’ve been writing songs for an animated T.V. series and have finished my third record to be titled “The Magic Hour.” An extensive tour of the U.S. is currently being co-ordinated for 2009. I’m looking forward to meeting new people and hearing new stories. Hope to see you out there.

Chris Hart live at the Blue Bar, Nashville Tennessee.
