ABOUT

[The above song I recorded using two tapes and a double cassette recorder, in the early '90s.]

Do you love BRITISH & Irish music - '60s to '90s? I'm looking for people to do covers with, hopefully play some shows if we get good enough. I spend my time back and forth between Toronto and Mississauga. In order to get along, please only contact me if your sociopolitical views are left of centre: no racism / sexism / ableism / homophobia / transphobia (the usual caveats of decent human beings!).

Influences

Ideas for the kind of material I'd love to cover (we can pick and choose as we please - I am not expecting to cover everything listed here, of course)...
- '60s alternative/Mod/psych stuff (weirder Beatles tunes, early Who, Velvet Underground [well, John Cale is British], the Zombies, the Creation)
[NOTE: Please don't contact me if you're intent on playing a lot of Rolling Stones / Led Zeppelin songs, I have issues with those guys.]
- '70s punk & ska (the Clash, the Specials, the Selecter, Madness, English Beat)
- '80s/'90s UK & Irish social commentary artists (the Smiths, Morrissey, the Housemartins, the Beautiful South, Billy Bragg, the Redskins, Sinead O'Connor, U2)
- Goth, dreampop, synthpop (Cocteau Twins, the Cure, Siouxsie & the Banshees, Depeche Mode, New Order, Pet Shop Boys)
- Shoegaze (My Bloody Valentine, Curve, Slowdive)
- Madchester (the Stone Roses, Happy Mondays, Charlatans)
- Britpop (Blur, Oasis, Rialto, Supergrass, Lush, Elastica, Sleeper, Echobelly)
- Triphop (Portishead, Massive Attack)
- to modern popular British artists (Lily Allen, Paloma Faith, Kaiser Chiefs, Arctic Monkeys).

If this post resonates with you in any way, please get in touch with your details (do you sing, what instrument(s) do you play, your favourite British/Irish artists).
