he’s reluctant to find he’s stuck in the 90s

CDs i’ve bought in the last week:

  • joel plaskett – la de da
  • city field – authentic city
  • the inbreds – bsides

it just struck me last night that i might as well be living in the mid 90s again with these purchases. my list could well have looked like this instead:

  • thrush hermit – sweet homewrecker (joel plaskett’s old band)
  • the super friendz – mock up/scale down (matt murphy of city field’s old band)
  • the inbreds – kombinator

it makes me happy that some of the best canadian musicians from the 90s are still making music.

    How is the City Field album? I haven’t heard anything from it, but Matt Murphy is one of my favourite songwriters ever.

    Also, don’t know if you heard this already, but the Inbreds are playing a one-off reunion show Friday, March 11th at Lee’s Palace.

    city field is ok. matt doesn’t play an overly big role – mostly just harmonies. a couple of the songs are really catchy, but i’m still not quite sure about the primary male vocalist (whose name escapes me at the moment). he has his moments…

    and i did indeed know about the inbreds show…i’ve been hearing rumours about it since novemberish (thanks dave cyr!) hopefully i can go.
