1991 album by the geek-rock band the Rheostatics. Overall it has kind of a spooky sound, especially in their excellent cover of Gordon Lightfoot's song The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. Chanson Les Ruelles is really funny -- it's all in French but sung with absolutely no French accent. Record Body Count makes me really sad for some reason.

I played this album all the time when I first moved to Canada. It helped to get me in the mood for my first really long dark winter.

Here are the songs:

  1. Record Body Count
  2. Aliens (Christmas 1988)
  3. Northern Wish
  4. Saskatchewan
  5. Horses
  6. Christopher
  7. Chanson Les Ruelles
  8. Lying's Wrong
  9. It
  10. When Winter Comes
  11. The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald
  12. You Are Very Star
