A couple of West Coast bands for Duzey. Oldies(kinda of) but goodies

The Odds-Wendy Under the Stars

54-40 Baby Ran

Probably one of the best bar shows I have ever seen. These guys were amazing.

Oh and cause it's a Canadian thread and I haven't seen them in a couple of pages.

Gord at his poetic and eccentric best.

Wow, Steppenwolf were Canadians! And Loreena McKennitt! I recently found out about Joni Mitchell. And I knew about Gordon Lightfoot. Grew up on S, JM, and GL. Played "Four Strong Winds" decades ago in an elementary school (talent?) show. Still singing/humming these tunes to this day.
to Canada and all its talented people

Thanks for the songs!

I can't decide if I actually like 54-40. I enjoy some of their songs, others I really don't enjoy and the rest are somewhere in the 'meh' range. I fully expect the BC music police to come and arrest me for treason after saying that.

I like this one - Ocean Pearl.

Currently a one-hit wonder in Canada, but that could still change for him with his upcoming album (if it doesn't suck). I blame my last speeding ticket on this song.

Kazzer - Pedal to the Metal

I get to see these guys for my birthday party!!!


It's my East Coast bias I guess but these guys got overlooked alot. Breaking at the same time as BNL and The Hips 2nd or 3rd album didn't help. Great band though. It could have been the record contract dispute that hurt there chance at the big time.

Hope they open with this.

Good thread. I'd just like to mention that because of CRTC Canadian Content rules I've heard some of this music waaaaayyy too much over my lifetime and if I hear some of it again I will slice open a vein. :w:

Some more recent stuff that gets overlooked even by Canadian Content Standards:

The Arcade Fire - Rebellion (lies)

The Art of Fresh - Get Free

One of the best Barenaked Ladies songs is Call And Answer

More to come as I search for video links.

I think this is my favourite Quebec artist:

Jean Leloup - I lost my baby

Jean Leloup - Je joue de la guitare (live) (with lyrics worthy of ATS - F the system yeah)

Jean Leloup - Johnny Go (very bad quality and a different version then I have but it's the only one on you tube) If you can find an mp3 of this tune it's worth it.

The Arcade Fire from Montreal QC have played with the likes of Springsteen, collaborated with Bowie, opened for U2 (who are fans) and have been on every show that can feature a band (like Letterman etc).

It's a shame their not more well known in Canada.

The Arcade Fire - Rebellion (Lies)

The Arcade Fire - Neighborhood #3 (Power Out)

To some people this band is an acquired taste (to me they're brilliant).

Here they are playing in an elevator (notice the guy ripping magazines for sound effect).

The Arcade Fire - Neon Bible (live in an elevator!)

A few more:

The Arcade Fire - No Cars Go

The Arcade Fire - Keep The Car Running

The Arcade Fire - Black Mirror

The Arcade Fire - Wake Up

The Arcade Fire - Intervention

Sam Roberts - Where Have All The Good People Gone?

Sam Roberts - Hard Road

Sam Roberts - The Canadian Dream (can't find an "official" video... "everything move real slow when it's 40 below" = GREAT LINE!))
