Calvin McElroy

Went to a show with Michael Rault playing & there was this other guy who looked like Napoleon Dynamite playing. Anyway was impressed with him recording a beat to a song by tapping his guitar , then looping trumpets etc. Sounded like a full band playing.
While the songs are'nt as cool recorded on cd as being live , here are a few for your listening pleasure
You Belong Here
Island Song

More Happennings in Edmonton

Well i've had three days off. checked out the record shops etc. Found 15 lps eg Barry Allen, a couple of Surfaris lps, Johnny & the Hurricanes lp etc.
Will post a few whe i get back.
Got to See Michael Rault twice. He's this kid that plays R&B.
He plays guitar & tambourine with his feet.
All i got to say is I highly recommend seeing him when he plays in your town.

From the "Crash Boom Bang Lp"

Circle Widens Update

Sorry no pic on the blog but if you want to read about "Circle Widens" , the University of Alberta had a student paper called "the Gateway " .
Anyway the magazine has been digitalized so you can search through it.
Just look up the years 1968, 1969 & 1970 & type in Circle Widens in the search box.
Here's the link-
