Gas - Wheat is Your Mantra (1994)



We think we were looking for GASP, and somehow ended up finding this tape by Gas. We have no idea who was in this band, whose sound fits pretty much exactly what you'd expect from the early 90's Calgary alt-rock scene.


Update! Thanks to Lorrie Matheson and Brooker Buckingham for filling out the membership. Looks like this was a continuation of Gaudhed.

Thanks, Lorrie! Now get back to the song of the week thing! We demand some Quitters...

the line up of Gas was:
Des Brown - Vocals
Alistair Morton - Guitar
Laurence Smink - Guitar
Brian Doss - Bass
John Phillips - Drums

Actually, Lorrie should know better since he lived next door at the time. I think the dudes he mentioned made up Gaudhed, pre Gas. Marty Chatrin was the drummer.

Thanks, Laurence! We appreciate the clarification. We'll be sure to give Lorrie a hard(er) time next time we see him.
