The Silver Screen

Guess what? We're going to be in a movie. We filmed the scene -- a battle of the bands -- yesterday.

Saturday Night Special

Just a reminder that Bishop Morocco (a band that I play guitar in) will be playing its very first show on Saturday night at Whippersnapper Gallery.

Josh Reichmann will be opening up; Jaime Sin and Mikey Apples will be DJing throughout the night. The live music starts at about 11. Short sets, so don't be late.

Also, there's a nice little blurb about the band in Now -- read it here.

Bishop Morocco

Since I seem to love talking about myself so much on here, I thought I might as well tell you kids about the band Bishop Morocco. My friends Jake Fairley (ex-Uncut and current techno superstar) and James Sayce (who was in The Deadly Snakes and Tangiers) decided to live in Gronigen and make a record. Said record is really good and will be coming out on Hand Drawn Dracula sometime in the near future.

They asked me to (or maybe I forced them to let me) play some guitar in the live version of the band, which is now the three of us and a big dancehall style soundsystem in lieu of a drummer.

We're playing for the first time on July 11 at Whipper Snapper in Toronto. Although I'm quite nervous about it, I still want you to come out and see us play.

I used to have a regular Tuesday night with my friend Greg where we played records and drank beers at Sweaty Betty. Lots of people seemed to like it and it was fun to do. Well, we're doing the same thing again, except this time it's on Monday nights and it's at Red Light.

You should come out sometime.

Japan Footage

I recently found some footage of our trip to Japan and decided to edit it together. Sadly, nothing of us actually playing. You can't have everything though, now can you?

Watch it here. Sorry, but it's too wide to fit into the blog.

Here's us playing "All Hands" live at Trash Palace in Toronto.

Loose Lips Sink Ships

As you might possibly be aware (because I like to relentlessly flog the fact on this blog) we're playing tonight at The Boat as part of Pop Noir. If you don't already know, The Boat is in Kensington Market, on Augusta, just north of Dundas. It looks sort of like a boat inside.

We're planning on delivering our rock stylings to your ears at 10:30 pm. We'll be mixing up the set with a variety of very new, kind of new, old and really old songs. For this pleasure, you are only asked to "pay what you can" (PWYC, as it were). After we're done, people will play records (or CDs, or mp3s, or whatever ... although records would be better) and you can dance if the mood so strikes you.

Hope to see you tonight!

Your Uncut Urban Planner

Friday April 17: We're playing at The Boat (in Kensington Market) at 10:30 pm. It's PWYC ... we're hoping that you can pay $1,000, but we'll settle for $5.

Saturday April 18: It's Record Store Day! Head on over to your favourite record store (in Toronto I suggest Frantic City or Rotate This, but that's just me) and buy some stuff. If you live in the UK you should go buy the Darkhorse EP on sweet 7" vinyl (actually, you should buy five copies and mail four of them to us).

Recording Update

So, we managed to finish three songs last week and will be heading in to do another three in the very near future. Hopefully we'll figure out what we're going to do about releasing them soon.

Can't wait that long to hear them? Come see us play some of them live this Friday at The Boat!

Gone Recordin'

We're in the studio right now, working on some new songs. More details to follow. Exciting!

No, this isn't about Chris Brown. Although, for the record, we don't like him. We just thought you might be interested to hear that we're playing a show in Toronto this month at an event called Pop Noir. It's at The Boat on April 17, it's $5, we're on at 10:30pm and people will play records after we're done. Sounds fun, right?

From the Archives - Volume Seven

A few years back we went on tour with Bob Mould (of Hüsker Dü / Sugar fame). To make the deal even sweeter, Brendan Canty (you might know him from a little band called Fugazi) was playing drums. Obviously, it was pretty freaking sweet. Here's some pictures.
