A final salvo in defense of The Tea Party

somehow, a "fratboy" with a 1.5 GPA majoring in Labatts Blue with a minor in hockey, I don't see him getting down to "Alarum" as "easy to like rock"...

perhaps the Tea are a little too intellectual for some folk, who miss all the literary references and dismiss the music because they don't understand it...

after all, how many "frat boys" or anyone else not very world-experienced are going to catch references to Tom Cowan, Piranesi, Bulgakov, Burroughs, Thelemic religion, Roy "The Badger" Harper, Pentangle, or recognize a sitar beyond "uuuuuh hey, that's the thing Metallica used on 'wherever i may roam'..."

</snark>

and hey, maybe if enough beer drinking fratboy types DID listen to the Tea, there wouldn't be a need for the White Ribbon Campaign, which the Tea have heavily supported over the years..... yeah, the frat boys all clink their Molson Ices and sing along to 'Release', right?

ps - not an attack on you Bassy (or DaveC or anyone else here), the snark is aimed at the fratboys more than anything else...

I cannot BELIEVE I forgot Cowboy Junkies. Their cover of "Thunder Road" on the "'Neath Your Covers" EP is so damn good.

Oh, and yes, this IS Canadian Love.

Please start a new thread to discuss how putrid you believe Canadian music to be.

Thank you.

my US$0.02 -- frankly if anywhere is responsible for the most awful music "per capita" it's either America or Germany... now back to the Canuck love-in...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Holly McNarland? sorry, I only know her via the Tea...

Metal -- Annihilator and Voi Vod- heh, I listened to them in high school

Classics -- BTO and Steppenwolf

I believe the solo and combined careers of Mssrs. Fulber and Leeb have been mentioned in their various guises yes?
(so so so addicted to Conjure One right now)

Does anyone remember Bif Naked?

Generational divides: Were you introduced to Buffy Sainte-Marie via Sesame Street, or by her song 'Codeine'? ...or do you have no idea who she is?

Without Nivek Ogre and SKINNY PUPPY!!!!!! there would be no NIN, no Ministry, no Marilyn Mans... um, maybe that'd have been a good thing, nevermind... ^_^

Everyone knows Buffy St Marie now thanks to Moulin Rouge. Or they know her without knowing her.. ("Love lift us up where we belong..Where the eagels cry on a mountain high").

Nice to see the Weakerthans and Delerium bet a mention, too. I approve.

What about Manitoba and the Junior Boys?

and you'll have to excuse me, I'm not at my best, but it looks like y'all forgot spirit of the west!

Wow, thankfully Matt Good was added to the list in the last few posts - I can't believe he wasn't mentionned in the beginning...He's by far my fave Canadian artist...

Interesting U2 fans are bashing Canadian music...there's a whole blurb on the great writers we've produced in Bill Flanagan's "Until the End of the World" (mentionning Leonard Cohen, Joni Mithchell, Bruce Colburn, Neil Young)


Zoorock Girl mentionned Default as being Canadian...actually it seems to me they're from Florida (they're def. American though, not Canadian)

LEONARD COHEN!!!

Definitely my favourite Canadian artist of all time. Poet, philosopher, songwriter, novelist...the muse, the refuge, the darkness and the light of Canadianiana. None of these nouns actually fit. Greatness often can't be defined. (Bono selected him as one of the top three songwriters of all time.)

Other Canadian artists/bands I like, off the top of my head:

Sarah McLachlan
Sam Roberts
Daniel Lanois
Cowboy Junkies
Blue Rodeo
Gordon Lightfoot
Jane Siberry
Tara MacLean
