National Dust - ...Blind Luck Ain't No Luck At All (1998)




Carrying on with favourites of ours, here's local sweetheart/curmudgeon Lorrie Matheson and his alt-country all star band, National Dust. After his short exile in Edmonton with Pal Joey, Lorrie picked up with alumni of the Burners, the Nex'd, and the R&B Keepers, and put out this gem. This is a nice progression from Fire Engine Red, with "Sadie Hawkins" being a highlight in Matheson's songwriting (although, looking through the liner notes we're reminded that Brooker Buckingham and James Hayden share the music writing credit).

Get lucky here.

So you say they're from Calgary; but did you know Calgary street punk acts are often manufactured, prefabs; process demos provided to a private business; assembling groups similar to Sex Pistols; allegations exist that Kidz; No Copies Left may be the only actual true straight edge hardcore punk band of Alberta history to be formed successfully, performing events, credible as punk while Calgary is practicing protocols of Zion, to benefit Jewry - Shulchan Aruch
