Subject: moncton compilation
Hi. Just thought everyone might be interested in knowing that a compilation cassette of Moncton
bands recorded by Rick White was released yesterday. Mail order strategies are fuzzy at the
moment but it can be bought at Room 201 for those with access. The tape is all unreleased
Elevator to Hell
Bad Luck #13
Idea of North
- I just got it Friday March 1. It comes with a really snazzy
photocopied booklet, with info on the bands involved and the
sessions that produced the recordings found therein...also some
decent Rick White comics, though i prefer the cat comic he did for
I like it a lot. Like Rick White says, he has a unique way of
listening to music, so when i first listened to the tape of the way
to Montreal (missed the bg show...) on a cheap walkman, it sounded
well, quite lo-fi, in fact exceedingly so. Sounded much better on a
more decent system at home. You can also track how rick's recording
technique has improved. In the beginning, it's a little dry and
muffled, especially when he is recording heavier bands. His later
stuff is more organic. Oh well, on to the music.
Purple Knight: I actually like this purple knight song a lot, which
is saying a lot, because it normally takes me a while with Mark's
stuff. Like Rick says in liners, very eerie and spooky.
Tara S'appart: very beautiful, ethereal. Makes me want to get her
Elevator to Hell: excellent track
Monoxides, Underdogs, Earth AD, Villanovans: they just kind of bounce
of my ears, like a laser beam of the shields of the Enterprise. No
effect on me. Sorry.
Moonsocket: I'm not sure...there's something wrong with me...can't
connect with it...trying though...
Idee du Nord: I prefer the version on their cd.
Orange Glass: My discovery of Orange Glass is a recent thing. I like
'em. I like Park Bench.
Suddens: Amusing cover of "Can't Explain" by the Who. Quite good
Bad Luck #13: Doing a cover of an ancient Cap-Pele band. i kinda
like it. Excellent guitar work. Really - well - funny.
Broken Girl: Sheer beauty in simplicity. Demo version of Eyes Shut,
from Purple Blue. Just Julie's voice and guitar. Worth the 7 $ i
paid right there.
Eric's Trip: Captured live at Cafe Campus in Mtl. Doing a Bad
Religion song. Don't remember name. Anyway, the banter between julie
and audience priceless ("I guess when you're in that sloppy
state..."). Good live recording too.
Anyway, the comp shouldn't be too expensive (i paid 7$ at Room 201), so
if there's a little bit of cash in pocket, do pick it up, or
mail-order it, if only for the broken girl, et, og or Tara S'appart.
Note to Ron: how do i get a hold of Tara's cassette?

An explosion of sin.
