Happy Birthday to me, Love SK

So, this is one of those one's I'd been holding onto for a special occasion. For starters, I talk about Jordan Cook too much (and still don't have the bloody album), and for finishers (huh?) you don't talk about a band this epic on any old day.

"There is something in the water of Saskatoon."

No shit.

Wide Mouth Mason
was one of my favorite bands when I was growing up. They found a fantastic mix of blues, funk and rock. In recent years, I've discovered my new God (sorry Dave) Mr. Jordan Cook. Add to that Curtis Scarrow (one hell of a shredder himself), SJ Kardash on bass, Danny White on drums, and Manitoba's own Big Dave McLean and fuck me sideways do you get something special.

So special, why not call it Guitarmageddon? I could talk forever about talent, tightness, songwriting ability and other traits which make this supergroup amazing, however there is really only one thing you need to know: They fucking love playing music.
