nope, it wasn't them.  the kids were from QEH (my home turf) and i 
actually have the footage of the whole caffufle from CBC on tape 
somewhere.  They were big punk rockers and my friend neil's big sister 
rachel used to date one of them.  chris went to hfx west high school, jay 
went to private school, andrew went to dartmouth high, but transfered to 
QEH to play basketball (i swear to god.  it was the "cool" thing for 
dartmouth jocks to do in their senior year.), and i have no idea where 
pat went to school.  I don't think they were punks by any stretch of the 
imagination in HS (chris loved minor threat, tho...).  In some more 
usless gossip, rachel (neil's big sister, remember?) went on to date jay 
a couple of years later.  she says he was really nice.

do they suck for carrying vinyl, or for carrying PJ and REM, or do you 
suck for buying it?  I don't understand ;)
