CCPS Miscellany: Racer Ten and Product Four - The Big 10-4 (1995)

Let's head to southern Alberta now, shall we? This split tape features some good old late 90's pop punk (or punk pop?) from Medicine Hat's Racer Ten and Lethbridge's Product Four. David Tighe was good enough to tip us off to the fact that the Todd in Product Four is thee one and only Todd Harkness (later of Porter Hall, Sloth Records and other stuff in Calgary).

We don't know anything more about Product Four, and weren't holding up much hope for finding info on Racer Ten. Thankfully and quite surprisingly, their Tripod page is still active.

We have no idea if there's any way to listen to the Realplayer files on their site; instead, maybe just grab this tape?

Never too late to comment on an article..
Product 4 was Rich (vocals, bass I think), Todd (guitar) and Paul (drums).
Rich later went on to be in some metal type bands. I ran into him on Christmas Eve at a shoppers drug mart years later.
Paul I dunno. I think he used to work at the Shell gas station in downtown Lethbridge.
Todd Harkness of course you know.
Todd was in my science class in high school. I thought it was cool he played in a band. The first punk gig I went to, Product 4 played (and probably Racer Ten). It inspired me to finally form a band and play my wimpier songs in my band Favour.
I either had this tape or another Product 4 tape, which I leant to a guy in 1996 and never got back.
