A gaggle of Canadian bands
by Editors' Picks

Adam: Well it's Canada Day `round these parts, celebrating the birth of this nation. Best I can remember it involved a bunch of guys we kindly call the "Fathers of Confederation" getting drunk on a boat. I'm sure someone can correct me on that, but it was a pretty non-dramatic declaration of independence either way. We do however do our best to continue that particular tradition to this day. To celebrate this wacky country here's a whole gaggle of Canuck bands for you to rock out with. We've got everything from classic punk acts like D.O.A., the Demics and SNFU, to those early Vancouver Complication bands like Young Canadians, Pointed Sticks and Modernettes, to modern favourites like the Weakerthans and Propagandhi. Heck we even finish it off with a dash Narduwar for good measure. Enjoy.

D.O.A. - songs from Are You Ready? and Live Free Or Die!
Young Canadians - songs from No Escape
The Pointed Sticks - songs from Perfect Youth
The Modernettes - songs from Get It Straight
