The Revival - March 30, 2012

Just getting home, 2:00 am. I really wish the TTC ran later, it might of saved me thirty bucks, that's what the cab ride cost me to get back home. Ahh well, shit happens...I was at the Revival tonight. Great show as expected, this the second time in as many months the Spoons have played a live gig, and there another show in Hamilton coming up. The was a special show as it marks the 30th Anniversary of the "Nova Heart" release, not only one of the Spoons best songs of all time, but also one of the greatest singles ever released by any Canadian band of all time. Of course that's just my opinion, but never the less a correct one. To commemorate the anniversary the band has released a special CD singe with six different version of the song including the Dark Before Dawn and Sigularity versions whichh are brand new 2012 remixes. There were two openning bands that were also excelent Calling August kicked it off...

Comateens - First Album Available

From the Band themselves...Just wanted to give you an update on several things happening in the Comateens universe these days.First off - the Limited Collector's Edition of the Comateens first album is once again available for purchase, after quickly selling out the first two runs! In addition to the original 1981 track listing it includes a bonus track—the original 1979 recording of "Cool Chick" featuring Ramona Jan on guitar and Harry Viderci on drums, first released on a self-produced 7" vinyl single. The tracks on this CD were transferred directly from the original analog master tapes of the album and capture the primitive sound of the band at the dawn of the '80s.It’s available for purchase at this link, directly from the band: The band hopes to have the rest of the Comateens catalog remastered and re-released on CD and digitally in the not too distant future!
