you guys are pretty freak'n lame on the Canadian Music-o-meter....radar...thing.
Seriously, all those bands are like the main that make there way over the state line.
Given, I enjoi Sam Roberts from time to time.
I think Nix and myself and any other canadian forumites probably have our local favs and get more of a listen to smaller stuff.... but(and I cant remember the exact percent) I know Canadian stations have to play like 35% canadian bands, and like 10% of that has to be local artists... or somthing silly like that.
All I know is Freq107.1 here plays so much fuck'n local shit, and dont get me wrong, its shit, but they play it, and it helps the bands, and thats pretty dope.
And you guys want some good local Canadian bands?
Check out Resistance. Sure you can put on a Distillers cd and get the same feel, but they rule live.
check the music video they have for "song for the sleepless" that tracks pretty dope. Video sucks dank, but the tracks dope.
then my last(and strongest) recomendation is Port Amoral.
I grew up going to local shows, listening to Volition. Volition was amazing, and could impregnate you via ear trauma. Horribly enough, they broke up. Ryan went on to Hollow Ground, which is doing awesome now, but the other guys made the Cast. The Cast broke up, cause they're bitches, and made Port Amoral.
Now they're only HALF bitch, and the rest awesome.
check out the songs When Angels Fall, and This Road.
Catchy sonsofbitches, put on wicked sets, and have enough energy to power the university of Delta State for a WEEK!
So yeah, those are my two cents.
Now its 4:53 am and I'm fuck'n ASLEEP!
