Patabeatniks - That Stupid Club (1995)

So, we were at Greek Fest this past weekend, stuffing ourselves with roast lamb, when we stumbled upon the Rembetika Hipsters' merch table, where we picked up this CD (along with the NEW CD from the Now Feeling - yes, you read that right).

The Patabeatniks were an extension of the Eternal Now, featuring Nick Diochnos and VOX/Eye editor Bill Reynolds. So, it's fitting that this continues the tradition we'd expect of literate, melodic pop. We're pretty sure this CD was recorded in Ontario, and that it hails from the time when a pile of Calgarians moved to Toronto in search of fame and fortune. BUT, reading through the band's membership both on the CD as well as the past membership, it's impossible for us to not consider this a Calgary band.

We're not going to post a download link, since we just bought this direct from the Rembetika Hipsters. If you want a copy, you can probably get one if you're at Pegasus on the right night.

Somebody must have the early 80s demo tapes by this band: "breakfast cereal", "black cats in budapest" etc. Please find them and post.
