Out of Country???

Just a question to all you Sloanetters who reside out of Canada.  I'm just
curious as to how you guys heard of any of the Canadian EC bands, whether
it was stumbling upon them at various shows or word of mouth or on TV or

I'm just wondering because I know that the majority of Canadian bands (and
many, many good ones) that are well known here at home are like complete
nobody's as soon as they cross the border into the States (i.e. the
Tragically Hip).

I'm amazed that Canadian music, and EC music especially has done well with
Americans, and especially Australians and Europeans.  Not necessarily
because their tastes are any different, but because of the lack of exposure
Canadian music gets (except of course for Bryan "PUKE-HURL-SPEW" Adams).

I'm just curious.


P.S. - Here's a joke one of friends forwarded to me.

P.S.S - Still looking for a name for my band, so ANY suggestions would be
