We'd like to thank Doug Swift for sending us this, and getting us back onto our original path of preserving old tapes (rather than amassing new tapes as it seems we've been doing lately).
We've seen Zero Hour on the Calgary Compelation and heard about this tape from Dan Izzo (we think? memory is fuzzy on this. Tubby Dog was involved). Doug tells us this tape is an evolution of the band from the Compelation track - original lead singer Lyndon Johnson split and eventually joined Rymes with Orange. The band carried on and put out this tape; Doug tells us:
Our practice space was Riley Manor on Crowchild and 5th until some rich people bought it and they moved it down the street. Our brother band was Eye on You as Murdoch MacLeod lived there too. He came up to Edmonton with us and played third guitar during one of our visits there. Mark "Egg" Sundberg was our tried and true roadie. Unfortunately, he died early in 2013. We loved that guy and I went to Elementary school with him. Although we didn't make it out of Alberta we played lots of shows with some other excellent bands - the list includes Eye on You, Color Me Psycho, Beyond Possession, SNFU, No Rebate, Corrosion of Conformity, Disciples of Power, Silent Terror, No Limbo Lasso, and some others I can't remember. I know we were supposed to play with Crucifucks in Edmonton at some church, but they didn't get across the border so we got to headline that show, which was cool.
This tape is probably more metal than skate punk, but hey, this is Calgary and we do like our metal.
