THE SCIENTISTS ? ?PISSED ON ANOTHER PLANET?

Recently a scientist (a real one) asked me what the deal was with the Scientists early stuff. He liked everything post “Swampland” but wasn’t sure about the lyrics in all those early songs with titles like “That Girl”, “Girl” and “Pretty Girl”. My answer was that I didn’t write those lyrics. The songs were written […]

To look at the career of the Scientists is, in essence, to look at the career of Kim Salmon, one of the most vibrant musical talents to emerge from Australia in the 1970s. Not that he was the only one. Nick Cave, for example, may have made more of a splash outside of the country, […]

fat possum bio

When Bob Log III was a child, he lost his left hand in a boating accident. It was soon replaced with a monkey paw, and a new guitar style was born. It’s my own personal style, see,” Log says, “the paw moves much quicker than a normal hand, so my real hand has to flop […]

Nomeansno: but Yes means Yes

by Kortney Jmaeff (April 2003) When uttering the words “Best Canadian Power Trio”, most plebian Canucks would primarily envisage Rush.

For […]

Bassholes AMG

In the wake of the 1992 demise of the posthumously-fabled Gibson Bros., three bands that were to define the garage rock and blues music underground emerged ? Bassholes, ’68 Comeback, and the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. Of these outfits, Bassholes remained closest to the rural isolated vision of traditional American folk-blues while simultaneously taking the […]

Bassholes i Jeffrey Evans

Don Howland (Bassholes) i Jeffrey Evans su pioniri lo-fi zvuka i imena su od velikog ugleda na nezavisnoj rokenrol sceni amerike. Zajedno su ’85. osnovali Gibson Bros, sastav koji je zna?ajan iz vi?e razloga. Najpre, sama postava (3 gitare plus bubanj minus bas!!) bila je krajnje neuobi?ajena i na neki na?in prst u oku establi?mentu […]

success on their own terms

After 20 years, legendary Canadian band borrows as much from Miles Davis as the Ramones By Ron Anicich When brothers Rob and John Wright formed Nomeansno in Victoria, B.C., 20 years ago they started a revolution in Canadian music. ?Unique? didn?t begin to describe their stripped-down, bass-and-drum-only approach to contemporary rock music.
