Man how could I forget Rusty?
Deep cuts from the Halifax scene, which has led me to now listening to the Superfriendz.
Speaking of Sloan, I saw them last summer. Still amazing.
Caught 'em in April myself! One of the best!
Our Lady Peace is Canadian? I always had a soft spot for them, could never articulate why.
I love Sloan's One Chord to Another!
Late to this but throw Isaiah Rashad - The Sun's Tirade in the "maybe" pile too.
If a small-town Alabama kid can add his Canadian music two cents: 17yr old me went to see Feist in Atlanta ~’07 or 08 and this dude Hayden opened for her. Well he was the epitome of cool for me so I instantly downloaded all his shit and fell in love with an album Elk-Lake Serenade. Flash forward to this past fall where I’m doing some PhD study at the university of Calgary. Went to a local record shop and right on the wall, that album! Trigger major flashbacks. I got super excited but sadly, they were asking like, $100CAD! Not for me. But I did pick up Feist - Metals at the same shop so it all kind of came full circle.
That’s all I’ve got!
Anyone know of any reissues of this? I would buy every variant possible.
Not rock, but there was a cool rapper out of Canada called Mathematik. Had a great cut called “Rhyme Training.”
Oh god, next you will try to convince me that the Rainbow Butt Monkeys where not shite
Finger 11 was worse
Naveed is a great album. 14 year old me played that every day
Hayden's first album, Everything I Long For, always had a soft spot with me
The band did one a few years ago via a deluxe box set as well as a single LP edition. I believe they have been working on doing this for each album.
5 Days in July Me Please!!
Saw them live a couple years ago at their first show in many years. Small club in Toronto just off College.... A little while after the opener this teenage kid slid by me through the crowd with a sweet looking skateboard. I told him his skateboard looked really cool. He smiled and said thank you. Then a lady followed behind him, tapped me on the elbow and said, "Thank you, I just bought that for him, I think you made his day." Before I even realized it was Margo Timmins I said something like, "No worries, it is a cool looking board." She then made her way to the stage to begin their set. (It was a great show.)
Also saw them way back at a Spring Fair. One of their singers had some pretty serious legal trouble here a couple years back, (Jian Ghomeshi) so not sure they get much play anymore. It is too bad because Bargainville was a really fun and solid mid 90's album.
It was reissued recently, last year I think. It seems to still be available on Amazon Canada but you may need to go through an Amazon 3rd party seller as it appers to be out of stock.
One Chord To Another (Vinyl)
I actually like the first Finger Eleven album. I may have a soft spot because they were a gateway to Deftones for me, but some of that album holds up. “Awake And Dreaming” and “Above” are definitely underrated.
