She didn't have much music released but this came out posthumously.

I'd like to post more music from some of the CMJers. They all have stories too, some tragic as well.
Thanked mostly for the John Peel intro, miss listening to him 40 years on

From last year, The Beths released an album that is just too catchy for words. Case in point:

I heard about Parts & Labor from their drummer, Christopher R. Weingarten, when he wrote for CMJ. They were an under appreciated noise rock band. Their album “Mapmaker” is their most accessible, and this song from that album has a cool video.

I've been listening to Nana Grizol's Ursa Minor a lot lately. It was one of my favourite albums a couple of years ago but after getting into it again it really hit me how clever their lyrics are. The wordplay, storytelling and pacing...it's so
great!

An underrated band wrote an underrated song. Seriously, stop and really listen to this song for a moment. The musical composition is simple, yet complex. The lyrics are daring. It's hidden behind a relatively sweet melody. Every time I hear it I'm intrigued.

Funny I pulled out 'The temple of low men' and listened to it a couple of days ago, great band (?)

I assumed they were very successful but I guess they did better in Canada and Australia than they did in the US.

That song is great. Temple of Low Men will make good bedtime music.

Huge in the UK in their time, which I never realised as Rip It up was probably the last single I bought before emigrating to Canada, I just thought it was a cool jangly guitar song with a neat picture cover, it wasn't until they released a 4 cd retrospective with gushing reviews in the Guardian I had any idea how big they were, there was a period before the internet became a thing were if you lived in Canada you had no idea what was going on in the UK music scene.

Edwyn Collins first band, In a BBC 6 Music radio interview on 18 February 2005, Collins said he felt unwell, but ascribed the nausea and vertigo to food poisoning. Two days later, he was admitted to intensive care in London's Royal Free Hospital after apparently suffering a major cerebral haemorrhage. After suffering a second haemorrhage he had an operation on 25 February 2005, which was followed by a lengthy programme of neurological rehabilitation owing to right-sided weakness and difficulty with speech. The aphasia he suffered allowed him to repeat only four phrases, over and over again: "yes", "no", "Grace Maxwell" (his wife's name) and "the possibilities are endless" he has gone on to make a reasonable recovery and plays music again.

In the same vein, the great 'what might have been' band of that era, before there was Oasis there was the La's, never got there act together after their first album but this is possibly one of the all time great power pop singles, perhaps it was too good as they seemed frightened to screw up after this and then just never really did anything else

That song is definitely up there with “Starry Eyes” for best power pop song. The whole album is great but the band actually hates it. Lee Mavers has said he’s going to re-record it but I doubt that’ll ever happen.

https://www.theguardian.com/music/20...pandrock.music

I found out about The La’s from the Just Say Yes To Another Excess compilation that I bought based just on the title. It had a bunch of great bands on it including Buffalo Tom, James, and The Fall. It didn’t have “There She Goes” on it but this song was enough to get me to buy their record.

Listening to The Constantines got me nostalgic for the other great band from the Royal City....Royal City. And of course the beautiful album released by Jim Guthrie of Royal City "Now, More Than Ever" with strings by Owen Pallet on the album.

Do people in Western Canada know these guys? When I was going to Uni in Guelph they had already kind of hit it big but they left a big impression. Guelph was kind of a hot spot for upcoming bands. I remember seeing Arcade Fire and Wolf Parade at the eBar.

Royal City and Jim Guthrie are definitely underappreciated nationwide.
