I'd really love to get my hands on some MIA videos for a long trip we'll be taking... Edward Bear, James Leroy, Ian Thomas, Toxic, Goddo, Gowan,
Aldo, Kitty Rye, Nickel Belt Hammers... I'm missing some early Stampeders stuff... some early Max Webster... gee, there's so many. Lighthouse, Mash
McCann, Crowbar. I'd love to sail into Valencia playing "Climbing A Cloud" with the Bose set on 11.
Canada is fortunate. New stuff... the Plaskett Emergency was fun, Moldy Peaches... Yanofski played Carnegie last week (best jazz show I've ever seen
in Toronto... in over a decade). Montreal is "so" happening in two or four languages I can't keep up... it's like the potholes.
There's this garage band in TO (Scarberia)... twin lead guitars (very Suthern' sounding) a bit like Molly Hatchett... all arabic and hindi kids. Big
sound. Very tight, great drummer (she's "hot" like Scientology isn't). They don't have a name but I hope they make it through the winter; you'd
swear you were in Mussel Shoals or down in Athens if you close your eyes while they are playin' Freebird. Nice blend of cultures, guitar rock and
rap. I tried to get them for our after Christmas Party... but they have families who don't let them do much more than jam at this point. I don't
think they do waltzes...
Great thread, I've enjoyed the music, thanx.
