Local Wares for Sale

While not quite local (anyone know where the hell SOUTH Simcoe is? I didn't think Simcoe was large enough to be divided into cardinal quadrants), yet another gem from the south of ON has fallen into my lap. Truth be told, I almost caught their set after walking out of a rather abysmal performance at the Silver Dollar with a couple of the guys from The Mercy Now. I poked my head into the Elmo, but didn't have the heart to stick around for Indian Handcrafts, and instead slinked over to my usual NXNE haunt, The Hideout.

 Me and my impatience.

Had I stuck around, I could have caught a really fucking loud 2 piece tear the shit out of some Fu Manchu. While I always seem to have a thing for the simplicity of 2 man bands, very seldom does this setup lend its self to a variety of musical styles. For example, if you told me that I was going to be amazed by a 2 piece playing a massive stoner-rock wall of sound, I would have called you crazy.  Still, its amazing what people can do with a metric fuck-ton of pedals and energy.

Don't believe me... be sure to watch this video all the way to the end. Let your eyes roll back into your head around 2:40... you'll figure out the rest.

-Oh them faces looking down on me. Do your worst and then set me free
