CAGLARRY



Hi - we're happy to announce that this year we helped to curate a stage at Sled Island in Calgary, with out new friend Zak Pashak, who is also apparently running for mayor or judge or alderman or something there. Basically we sent him a list of 100 bands we liked and he some how managed to get all our favourites together on two stages for a night that promises to be pure Western-Canadian mayhem.

This is the 2nd time we'll have played Sled Island, and maybe our third time playing Calgary. We once vowed never to tour Canada - 10 years later I'm sitting in a hotel room in Regina Saskatchewan (which I didn't even have to look up in order to spell correctly) writing programming notes for our festival stage in Alberta. Anyways the first time we did Sled Island we were pumped because they put us up in a suite hotel room (not "sweet", although it kind of was) and we basically got to wander around the city for the weekend - to that hot dog place, to the Tim Hortons, to the other Tim Hortons, and all the other great stuff in Calgary that we saw. We spent most of day one playing soccer with the band Basketball (read that carefully) in the back of the park where the main stage was, and destroyed them.

Then we played a show and Damian lodged a piece of glass from a broken pint glass that he had to go to the hospital after the show, and the glass is still lodged in his head (I'm not kidding). The next night we played at the Legion upstairs and even though the show was awesome and we made friends with all the opening bands, we were still kind of bummed because downstairs this band The Dodo's were opening up for Broken Social Scene, and our sentiment was mostly along the lines of "who the fuck are The Dodos", but we were able to cut through our mad jealousy and had a great time. The next time we came through town we played downstairs and smoked the room. And we got rushed through a crowd Beatles-style into an empty Tubby Dog (the hot dog place I was talking about earlier) to eat in peace while a throng of mad Calgarians tried to break through the windows like zombies to get their hot dogs. On the way home we flew WestJet which has cable Tv - I watched "The Day After Tommorow" which features a plane-crash scene (almost).

So like I said, Calgary is a great city and we love Sled Island.

Is that honestly the real population of Edmonton? Whoa. That lineup is sick, I hope the hot dog loving zombies realise it.

Hi, I was just reading the liner notes for 'couple tracks' and wanted to point out a mistake. In the write up for 'Generation' you said after a night of recording you got into the van and drove to Philly to play with Hard Skin.

You actually got in a SUV and drove to Philly and played with Urban Blight. The date was Monday December 27, 2004.

Hooray for White Lung, they really deserve more publicity for the quality of music they put out.

Since recently I become greatly interested in it, but to my regret I seldom can find something worthy in the internet.
