Toronto rocker DANKO JONES recently launched a column at Canada's Huffington Post. Following is an excerpt from his latest article:
"With everyone around me falling over themselves about Toronto Sub Pop band, METZ, I'm feeling that the time is nigh for a '90s noise rock revival. Many self-appointed rock pundits think of METZ, who I love by the way, as a Canadian anomaly. Especially since most people think the Canadian music scene started with Arcade Fire's Funeral album.
The fact is Canada has been a bastion of noise rock 'n' roll for years. So I made a primer for the curious to search out, to listen to and/or place METZ, JAPANDROIDS and FUCKED UP into context as you grope in the loud dark that is '90s rock..."
Go to this location Danko's complete list, which includes bands including BLISS, SUPERCONDUCTOR, KITTENS, SONS OF OTIS and THRUSH HERMIT.
Danko Jones (the band) have confirmed four shows as main support for VOLBEAT, with more due to be announced soon. Their schedule is currently as follows:
27 - Dawson Creek, BC – EnCana Events Centre
28 - Edmonton, AB – Shaw Conference Centre
