Maybe the discussion shouldn't turn to any of those bands, for a simple
reason. Shy Anne are good, they aren't. I have had the honor of hearing
them play, and playing with them, and they are talented respectable
musicians with the exception of the lead singer who shall go unnamed.
They have not fallen for the embarassing pitfalls of being in a band in
Halifax, and their alumni includes Andy Patil of the Holiday Snaps. Shy
Anne are good. Bottom line.
