Ignored 136: Crawl with Me by Art Bergmann

In Podcast on March 18, 2017 at 3:41 am


Cam and Sammy are total Art critics for this episode as they (mentally) visit BC for a chat about Art Bergmann and his 1988’s solo debut Crawl with Me. We love this album and we love both Art and art so brace yourself for lots of gushing. We discuss the merits of John Cale (as a producer), debunk suggestions that Bergmann is Canada’s answer to Keith Richards (he is Canada’s answer to Paul Westerberg, obviously) and we ponder long and hard why Bergmann isn’t often in the conversation with Neil, Leonard and Joni as Canadian songwriting royalty We wrap things with a bonus chat about Joy Division and New Order as we try to figure out if Peter Hook is really that bad of a dude. This episode also contains a random Cecil Seaskull mention.

Ignored 21: 1990s CanCon SEO bait

In Uncategorized on December 12, 2013 at 3:38 pm


In recent discussions with my close personal friend @GaryEdgar, we both agreed that an entire generation of Canadian bands just missed out on the Internet ubiquity of the 2000s onwards. This made us sad as many of these outfits entertained us for good portions of our 10s and 20s.

It’s not as if having a strong web presence is some sign of righteousness for our local recording artists. However, there is a risk of (partially) losing these acts to history if fresh online content is not created pronto to preserve their legacies/”legacies”.

We’re doing our part via this carefully-constructed PDF document. It contains a transcript of a Gmail chat between Gary and myself on our individual CanCon memories from Burlington, Thornhill and beyond.
