Big Rock Untapped [04 Mar 2009|01:03am]

So Big Rock Beer (an Albertan treasure) hosts a website for artists to stick up music for people to check out. It's really cool, totally free, and is a resource to familiarize yourself with some of the local acts that might be haunting your neighbourhoods. Once a year-ish a panel of judges take a few of the submissions (not necessarily the most 'tapped') and release a disc called 'Big Rock Untapped' which comes free with your purchase of a case of Big Rock Beer. You get beer, you get a CD, win win. Albertan artists like John Wort HannamBen Sures and the scrabulous Michael Bernard Fitzgerald have been included in the previous offerings of this disc. Zang. 

So yeah, if you're up for listening to some Canadian indie goodness then go bust it open.

A band! [26 Jan 2009|10:53pm]

[ mood | bouncy ]

Found out about a band: The Creepshow, from Burlington, ON...Their website: http://www.thecreepshow.org/
Wikipedia's entry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Creepshow

They kinda remind me of No Doubt in their early, early years...Just less ska, more 80s/early 90s punkish...I thoroughly enjoy them =D

Men in Kilts [12 Dec 2008|12:09am]

There is an absolutely FANTASTIC celtic folk rock band from Manitoba called "Men in Kilts." Their website used to be meninkilts.ca (and they still list it as their official site) but the domain seems to have been taken over by a gutter cleaning company (either that, or its just a joke?).

I tried messaging them via their MySpace page (currently the only site of theirs I can find) to ask about buying CDs, but I haven't heard back and it's been well over a month.

Does anyone know where I can find Men in Kilts CDs (or MP3s)?

Canadian music fandom help [11 Jul 2008|04:28pm]

Can anyone help edit the Canada article on Fan History to include more information on Canadian music and Canadian music fandoms? The whole Canada fandom category could also really use some work from people who have a better idea of what was happening in Canadian fandoms. Any help that you can provide would be very much appreciated! :) Thanks!

Howdy, howdy, I searched through LJ's interests for this, but I didn't get any luck, so I thought I would ask here.

Does anyone know if there's a comm dedicated to sharing Canadian music? If not, and I made one, would anyone here be enthused/interested?

Looking for a specific song... [19 Mar 2008|06:08pm]

I hope it is alright to post this inquiry here (if not let me know and I will remove it).

I'm looking for a song that has the following lines in it:

"Dancing on a tightrope suspended across a song
Balance on a thin lifeline defying gravities of right and wrong
Searching for the chord that ties it all together
For the sake of love, forever and ever..."

It's a Rik Emmett(from Triumph) song from either his Absolutely album or his Ipso Facto album.

I know it's not Saved by Love, or Middle Ground, or When a Heart Breaks Down, as I have found those lyrics online. It's completely un-Google-able, and I can't seem to track down a copy of either CD locally or through iTunes.

I appreciate any assistance you are able to give me, even if it's merely narrowing the song list down more.
List of Songs from Absolutely/Ipso FactoCollapse )

Thank you!
