Now, for full disclosure, I have to admit that Hey Rosetta! was the only band I knew of from Newfoundland before I wrote this, but they were a damned good one prior to taking a hiatus in late 2017, having garnered numerous JUNO and Polaris awards in their native Canada. Now, founding member and singer Tim Baker is returning with his debut solo record, Forever Overhead, which will be hitting the str...

The Band Everyone Thought Was The Beatles: Revisit the Klaatu Conspiracy of 1976

In 1976, hundreds of diehard Beatles fans became convinced that the mysterious album 3:47 EST by the band Klaatu was actually a new release from The Beatles in disguise, after a DJ in Providence, Rhode Island played one of its songs on the radio. Shortly afterward, Steve Smith discovered the album at the newspaper he worked for, Rhode Island’s The Providence Journal, listened to it, and became immediately intrigued. The album contained no photographs, no identifying information at all, a...

For now, we're talking about the kind of tattoos that run down your spine, often featurin...

Fighting Above Your Class: Steve Poltz on Songwriting, Loss, Relocation and, Yes, Wrestling

[Laughs.] It became this thing where the live shows were really fun, but you can't re-create that on a record. Eventually, I said, "I'm just going to make the best records I can make and pick good people to work with. And always put on a good live show." And I always wanted to have an element of danger like my teacher Country Dick Montana from the Beat Farmers. That was one of my main guys. I also remember when I went to see Loudon Wainwright III at McCabe's in L.A. I was in the Rugburns at...

Ed Bickert (1932-2019)

Ed Bickert, a Canadian jazz guitarist whose highly tasteful chord voicings and juicy sense of harmony made him a first-choice gig and recording sideman and leader in Toronto, and who today is considered one of jazz's finest guitar accompanists, died on February 28.
