Shantih Shantih Shantih

APRIL is the cruellest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.

Oh, Canadians

Apparently, "looney" doesn't just refer to their dollar coin.

Since I'll be spending a few days in those amorphous, little understood hinterlands known as "Canadia" for a few days, can anyone recommend some places of interest for the tragic hipster in Toronto? Any cool shows coming up? If any Sepia Mutiny commenters are reading this, feel free to drop me a line if you want to meet up.

Here's a track from one of the greatest things to come out of Canadia since poutine, DFA 1979's Romantic Rights.


Just a Good Ol' Boy

I've always associated the greatest car of all time, The General Lee, with escape from tyranny and bondage, not embrace. When the time comes for me to make like a trailer and get hitched, I can only hope to go out in the same ironic manner.

In that spirit, here's one of Berkeley's fine but forgotten punk acts, Tilt, with their cover of the Dukes of Hazzard theme song, Good Ol' Boys.
