Tariq - Graffiti Artist (1993)

We recently received a box full of tapes from local Bikeshevik CP Walsh, which included a few things we hadn't yet seen. Most notable among them is this tape from Tariq, who - although his bio now cites him as Vancouver-based - got his start in our fair city.

It looks like this might be his first release, a few years before he made the CanCon big times with "Chevrolet Way." This is just Tariq and his guitar (and some percussion). But the songwriting is the same observant, pop-folk that he's known for.

Get it here.

I had this cassette back in the '90s and thought it was really amazing! I was actually disappointed with his later work since I completely dug the guitar + vocal aesthetic of this album. Some great songs on it that should have been much more widely heard :)
