You can hear it in the first four bars

of the album. A meaty, beaty, big and bouncy drum fill, followed by

a glistening guitar line that could have been ripped from an old Rockpile

album, and a breathy Hammond B3 so beautifully captured that it seems

to conjure the dimensions of the room it sits in. It’s huge, but intimate.

Heavy, but airborne. And the hook is strong enough that you could hang

a whale from it.

The Trews’ reputation is built

on buffed and visceral rock songs, but on No Time for Later they cohere

like never before. The structures are more compelling, the playing is

more articulate, and the results more nourishing. If it’s the shrewd

marriage of new and classic rock that accounts for the Trews’ remarkable

multi-generational appeal – meaning they’re as welcome on MuchMusic

as they are inside the pages of the UK’s Classic Rock magazine –

then No Time for Later finds the band expanding at both ends of the

spectrum.

In total, No Time for Later represents

a major graduation for the band, right down to the Ralph Steadman-by-way-of-Warhol

cover art designed by Syperek. Incredibly, it was the counter-intuitive

approach of producers Gus Van Go and Werner F that the Trews

credit for the breakthrough. The first thing the team did was take one

of the best live rock acts on the planet, break it down to its constituent

parts, and record each member separately in a painstaking exercise that

band only half-jokingly describes as “our Rumours.”

Trews and their album No Time For Later, please visit thetrewsmusic.com.

Come celebrate with

The Trews at the Phoenix Concert Theatre on Thursday, December 18th

part of The Edge Electric Christmas

series!

Ouch... poor Vic.

Lookin forward to tonight!!

We're donating pretty much all we make at this gig to the Daily Bread Food Bank. The guys have done this charity show now for the past many years on boxing day in Antigonish, but we've moved it to Toronto this time around. Come out and support a great cause. We're on at 10:30.
