Brass - Brass (1993)

Brass

Ah, Brass. I think I could have liked them, if it weren't for their frontman. And the unfortunate title of the second track on this cassette. Guitarist Lyle Crilly went on to do come good stuff with other local outfits including Lemonjade and Thousandsticks. Guitarist Matt Gillespie would hook up with former CJSW music director Maizun Jayoussi to form the Lux. Dereh Hannah went on to, uh... I can't remember.

And I have a funny story about one of the things their lead singer went on to do, but if I mention it I'd probably get sued for libel or slander or whichever one of those it is when you slag someone in print.

Brassy!

I think Derek was in the Film Extras for a brief stint.

I wasn't. I was also in The Lux with Matt, however. Then I just didn't do anything at all. Ever. I'm waiting for death.

Derek Scott went on to form Lemonjade with Lyle and also did a lot of dj'ing across the country. He then moved to Toronto and started The Long Knives which was then renamed The Glad Yeah (http://www.myspace.com/thegladyeah)

He's currently still in Toronto with The State Of Things (http://www.thestateofthings.ca)

Lyle from Lemonjade used to live above me at the long-lost Acadia Apartments on 12th Avenue and he was always waking me up at night with his freakin' effects pedals!
