A band from Canada headed by John K. Samson, former bassist of Propagandhi. Their sound ranges from punk to soft rock with everything in between, leaving them nearly impossible to categorize. "Wuss rock" is probably the closest stab I've ever heard at a definitive label. "Incredible" would do it for me.

I'm told they put on an amazing live show, but I can't say myself, as I've missed my 3 opportunities to see them due to work, over-zealous border patrolmen, and moving really, really far away, respectively.

The lyrics: Thought-provoking. Subtle. Beautiful. In short, really damn good. You could teach a music/poetry appreciation class on these two records alone. That’s why I’m noding them:
