    in my world Propagandhi is probably the greatest music to come out of canada.

    the stuff just oozes perfection. lyrics are so well written, and the music to go with it... is hard hitting, loaded with beauty, and just takes all that is canada and wraps is up in this perfect package.

    thank you to the people that are propagandhi. you made learning music so much fun.

    Ahhhhh, got me there I had not heard of Propaghandi and had to google them. Mid 80s so a Modernish punk band putting them into the start of hardcore punk I think.
    I quit following it after the original wave. I was never a fan but 2 of my buddies were deep in the scene so I beacame educated....lol ( I was the only hippie at the Stranglers concert when they played Toronto )....lol
    I recently read a book on the history of Canadian punk so I am going to have to have a look and see if there in it.

    Love threads like this as there are always new bands to explore and things to learn.:thumb:

    Nancy Nash.....Former back up singer 'Dr.Hook' and she was once offered the job as the new singer for 'The Headpins' but she declined....

    Look at the 80's hair....she could sure sing.....I think she is from the Canadian Prairies.....

    I know he's probably quite a household name, but I'll say Neil Young because his guitar playing doesn't always get the credit it deserves. Been listening to Ragged Glory a lot of late and it is easily one of my favourite rock albums.



    Also, Mac Demarco is probably one of my favourite new musicians - very funny guy and some cool music, plus a great live performer who you can tell is into his music.

    they played in Rochester NY at the sadly defunct Penny Arcade several times back in the day so yeah i remember them and had the 2 albums as well. as i mentioned many Canadian acts played here back in the day. the first time i saw Triumph they did a show at our 2500 seat venue for 96 cents. never heard of them but hey less than a buck with Brownsville Station also on the bill couldn't say no. great show. glad i made your day and a cool band from back in the day got a little press.

    Well you are now the 3rd person to ever mention Brownsvile Station! Cub Coda was amazing. Love the album with Put the lights out ans Martian Boogie. Most people dont realize that "Smokin in the boys room" was there song and that Motley Crue only covered it.

    Martian Boogie was played on one of our radio stations back in the day so know it well. Smokin In The Boys Room was actually a hit back in 73 and i remember it well as i was in high school. i'm a huge fan of 70s hard rock / metal so i know a ton of bands that others might not.

    This thread reminded me of a Canadian band from London, Ontario called Christmas who released a self titled album of original material sometime in the 70's. Guess it had some limited radio exposure because one of my friends bought their album. I have never come across any reference to this band in any Canadian music forum or thread. Don't think their name helps in internet searches.
