    oh hey there

    For some reason, maybe talking to Ken (KC) yesterday, during my workday today compelled me to revisit the live music archive and take a trip down memory lane. I stumbled on Fat Cats NYE 31/12/04 ( (Bless, Esau!). Listened to the whole thing, so many memories. Somehow ended up on the original Lose Yer Shoes website (still being hosted by oocities.org), and flipped through hundreds of photos of LYS, Come together... thinking of Bradm... Kevin Rieth. Sad memories but also amazing memories. What a time to have been alive all things considered eh?? Glad this place is still kicking. Thanks for reading! adam

  2. Turns out that playing guitar in a improv focused trio is actually my favourite thing in the world to do. By a very strange turn of events, I've started a project with Chas Guay and Matt Aston called Original Sound Track. I was introduced to Chas years ago in PEI by Punk. Chas was his bass guitar mentor coming up. So Chas now lives in Ottawa and we got something started around Sept 2019. This band is really like 90% pure improv at this point. That being said, I feel like we are tearing a hole in the universe weekly and honestly that is pretty much everything I need from music. Posting hand held jam room recordings weekly here: https://soundcloud.com/user-77130993-304645937/nov-11-jam-3-m Looking forward to maybe playing for people someday

  5. Hey folks! A few weeks ago I launched Beggars Banquet, a podcast that explores the intersection of food and music. I interview bands and artists to discuss their relationship with food, on and off the road. Warning: this podcast will make you hungry! Episode #4 came out this morning and it features Andrew Barr. We talk about what it’s like growing up with a mom who worked alongside celebrity chef Julia Child, and how that influenced his tastes and cooking abilities. We also discuss making music in The Barr Brothers and Andrew’s role as a go-to-drummer in the tight-knit musical community in Montreal. You can listen on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever else you listen to your pods. If you enjoy, please rate & review as it helps with the almighty-algorithms. I've got lots more great episodes coming up so I hope you'll subscribe :)

    Friends and compatriots! I have finally at long last started a blog/website thingy where I'll be posting travel logs, videos, reviews, my daily ticket stories, and whatever else I can think of. My thanks to Mike and all of you on this website; this is where I started typing, where I started the nerologs and posted my first-ever travel log (from Peru), and generally where my writing bone got flexed. So again, thanks. www.toddmanout.com

  10. phorbsie called it "improv". We entered a contest to win a $5,000 home reno. We recorded a song and we need people to vote for it. I hate to ask, but if you got a minute could you click here and vote for our video? And yes, I really do get hit in the face with a board. https://krockrocks.com/contest/43766/gallery/?entryID=8024744&page=1&order=latest&search=&fbclid=IwAR3klwEdXuFfb3-UAy1f8ItPTt0HKoU6SqU-zb9VTCOMjN8r7QLOqccNtkM

They continued to push the boundaries of funk on the acclaimed “Dirt On the Floor” EP and collaborations with Funk Night Records on 45 vinyl releases. In 2020, The Soul Motivators released their sophomore album “Do The Damn Thing” showcasing their new powerhouse frontwoman Shahi Teruko.

Tush www.facebook.com/tushdisco Tush is a fast-rising electronic music act from Canada powered by Kamilah Apong and Jamie Kidd. Taking inspiration from electro-funk, early disco, and soulful 90s house, Tush forms a vibe all their own. More grit than glam, their sound embodies the rawness, vulnerability, and intimacy of the dancefloor. Apong and Kidd’s fruitful creative partnership began while covering rare groove disco live together in Toronto nightclubs. With the pandemic de-railing live shows for the year, Tush has pivoted to a more electronic sound that showcases their versatility - their debut album “Fantast” (out July 30) is equal parts house and nu-disco, giving the listener a taste of their heavy chops with a futuristic side of what’s to come.

DJs: DJ John Kong’s selections for the dancefloor echo his work as a label boss with Toronto-based Do Right Music. His DJ sets are a genre-bending mix of jazz, funk, disco, house, and hip-hop - the only common denominator being one great groove after another.

Beyond playing countless parties across the city, Palma has held a decades long monthly residency ‘Footprints.’ A concert promoter, musician, DJ, label owner, and avid music collector, DJ Quesquecest is French for “what is that?” and throwing down rare and exclusive big beats between sets at live events is his signature.

  13. Yes I have a vague recollection of this as well. Didn't 'Uncle Ted' end up with his mug on that site as well? I think it was actually a photo from ghost town. By the way Greg do you remember that first come together. We all drove up in your van. Arrived in the dark and was trying to park somewhere in the perimeter. Whichever hippy was navigating you as we backed in ended up getting you wedged between two trees. Lol. That was a great weekend. I think I drove your van on from there to the Gleesons' chalet in Thornbury/Collingwood. More good times. That seems like a lifetime ago.

  14. Didn't Greg start a thread here re: this topic way way back, not long after film release? Shame he hasn't had any luck all these years. I remember being at Greg's house in Saint John a couple days before 'A Head's Tale' was released and he was showing us the film, asking if we knew any of the folks names he had lost/didn't get. This being one of them.

  18. For those of you who have a fondness for the unique brand of gritty, dirty beats, grooves, light, darkness & sketch that was the Comfort Zone & Silver Dollar, there is a cool little piece from Spacing magazine: http://spacing.ca/toronto/2018/02/15/peak-inside-last-days-waverly-hotel-comfort-zone/?fbclid=IwAR1_taNIcWKAnD_jn8qyiQxwQcy-0sdHC-gJ07prSa2kM1GzFlQycomweqo So many great shows there....cheers to NewRider & Mulemomma for all the amazing acts they brought through there. I have often wondered whatever happened to Cosmic Steve. These are among my MOST memorable nights, in no particular order: -Regular Fat Cats residencies; -Burt Neilson Band; -Fat Burt New Years 2000; -Jazz is Dead (faaaackin awesome...holy shit, like Jimmy feckin Herring in your living room, that band launched me); -Derek Truck Bands (he was so wee...and so was I. Also mesmorizing); Tony Trischka (nuff said); Gov't Mule (among the sweatiest shows of my life, briefly met Allen Woody & Warren that night in the staircase before the show, poor Allen passed away days later I believe it was. I remember thinking at the time of running into him that he looked a little...tired. But the show was 'bumpin') Burning Spear (ya mon....positive, uplifting times) There are many more nights that have likely been lost or obscured in the haze. It was a matter of time, but sad to see it go

    My favourite news story of the past week was the one that reported that many of those charged in the Capitol insurrection didn't actually vote in the election.
