Old Record/New Record/World Record


So My Heart is a Blinking Nintendo is being released on vinyl to celebrate the fact that it is 10 years old. Sometimes I think to myself I have been playing Deep Fryer in My Bedroom for 10 years and I laugh. Then come the tears. I also just recorded a brand new record. It will probably be called “Shit Sucks” and it will be out in late Feb. Its 10 year anniversary edition will be out in 2025. You can drive your flying car to the record store to pick it up. I got a run of Ontario/Quebec shows ending in Dec on the 6th. Also got NYE in the hammer on NYE. Jan will see a Maritime run “Lordy Lordy Look who is 40 the Tour) as well as a stop in Winnipeg. Then Ontario again in March. West in April. Ontario again in June and Maritimes again in July and the circle of life continues

If you want to get Blinking Nintendo you can pre-order it here

Sum-Sum-Summertime


Some days I watch the Blue Jays lose, other days the ticats. and then sometimes i swim in a lake, i call those days shower days. Not much to report. tour is done, and since Mudtown Music is cancelled, the ONLY summer show I have left is at River and Sky. But then i will announce like 20 ontario dates soon so if you live in Ontario and dont hate me its looking good. I also will be putting out a gatefold vinyl of Blinking Nintendo at some point this fall, most likely Oct. so look out for that

Everyday Im Shovelling


Yep.
Mother has got me basically on 24 hour snow shovel and walk salting duty. Just in case she needs to head to the 24 hour Metro grocers. You would think I would be getting ripped and stuff but no, my body still feels like partially risen dough. Got a 7inch recorded should be out in a few months. Got a bunch of Ontario and Maritime dates booked, Western Canada in June, with a bunch of festivals. This summer I will ONLY be playing a couple Ontario festival dates. That is it. As for now, got the heat turned up, OV on the back deck and Earthworm Jim on the Sega,

Tour is Done, Winter Tourdates Announced!


Just wrapped up a 40 some odd show tour on Saturday. As I tore down my gear after the last show in Oshawa the bar started playing No Doubts Tragic Kingdom album. I lead a weird life. Thanks to all the great bands and people that make sitting in a minivan for 19,000kms worth it. Mission Accomplished is out now and is available in Hamilton, Toronto, Calgary, Peterborough, Fredericton and Halifax. You can get your local record store to order it if needed or just send some money to my Moms. Got some winter tourdates up, 4 festival dates somehow as well as NYE at the greatest bar at the corner of Murray and James in Hamilton (This Aint Hollywood). Tickets for NYE are 8$ and you can get them at the bar or at Dr Disc.

Well, all my winter/spring touring is pretty much done, I got 2 Ontario dates in June, and three weeks of east coast dates in july. New Record is done and will be out right after labour day on Mammoth cave Records again. Its called Mission Accomplished and it isnt too bad. its probably not any worse than my other records anyway. In the fall expect a big tour, a huge one. Hitting pretty much everywhere, im looking at you Hinton. If you want me to come to your town, drop me a line.

Getting my Butt Off the Couch—2013


So yeah. I am gonna try and pry myself off the couch in the next couple months and see if i can still RAWK. even though i am old and greyish. I got an East Coast tour booked for JAN. Ontario Weekends in FEB and West Coast in MARCH. So check the tourdates section. In the summer hopefully I will be doing a couple festivals in ontario and out east. I am also going to be recording soon, so expect a couple new songs in the set along with the old duds you have come to tolerate.
