[Gothic BC] Bad Vibes Radio Set List from May 25

Last week I was on Bad Vibes on CFRO. This is the set-list from that show. My bit starts with The Vampire Club by Voltaire, and you can listen to it here. From that point on Marc Godfrey and I were picking from a list of music that I brought with me depending on how the conversation went. I came armed with almost three hours of music for a one hour interview, with everything picked for a reason. What I want to do for the next little while is run through those choices, including the ones that we didn't get to, and talk about why I picked them.

#dailycolonist1915 - The news out of Victoria, British Columbia, 100 years ago:

You'd almost think this week's news was a steampunk fanfic and not the actual news from 100 years ago. We've got submarine and Zeppelin pirates, a secret submarine base in Asia Minor, Zeppelins bombing London, the king's birthday, and earls being knighted. We also have the beginnings of forced labour in Canadian concentration camps and the Armenian Genocide in Turkey. But we wrap up the week with good news from Denmark.

#dailycolonist1915 - News out of Victoria, British Columbia, 100 years ago:

The general buzz this week is on Russian advances in the Carpathian Mountains. The articles are all short on specifics, even in comparison to the heavily censored news from the Western Front, as all the news from the Eastern European theatre seem to be, so none of them were really worth "clipping". Suffice to say that the Russians have advanced through at least two Carpathian passes into Hungarian territory. The more interesting articles and advertisements from this week follow:
