Wandered the Peterborough Ont., downtown last night, heading to the Pig’s Ear to catch B.A. Johnston mastery. His fellow hammers, the Spruce Invaders opened. I couldn’t take my eyes of drummer Ian Kehoe (Marine Dreams, Attack In Black), he was feral, prowling, hunting, he watched it all, crouched, hunched over his low slung kit, keeping the beat but searching for what glimmer of movement he may discern from his bandmates, guage cues on direction. The band have been around for a few years. They play soft-spoken shiny happy tunes in the manner of Shotgun Jimmie but passed through Simply Saucer space-out psych-jams. I will make plans to see them again, in the meantime I'm grooving on the very topical Tropical Heatwave.
