 They trio including guitarist/vocalist Sean Brewer, bassist/ vocalist Mark Feduk and drummer Cory Motz have unfortunately had to cancel their past two visits to Lethbridge because of a run of bad luck.

“ We’re still alive and kicking,” Feduk observed.

“The last time we cancelled because I had a a severe reaction  to antibiotics. I was in Mexico and fell and cut my leg. I waited Until I got home  to get it looked at and it got infected. The time before that we had a horrible car accident the day before the show on the way to Waterton. Luckily nobody was hurt, so it has been bad luck, but also good luck,” Feduk related, adding they are 85 per cent completed a new EP.

“So we’ll have a lot of new music to play,” he continued, adding the new EP is still in the mixing stages.
“We ’re not sure how we’ll release it. We may release two at ta time. But we also want to do videos. So we’re going to take the time to do it right,” said Feduk, who also plays with Brewer in Red Ram and sometimes alternative country band the Uncas.

“We don’t take the Uncas out of Edmonton anymore,” Feduk said.

 He is excited about the new music, which not only stays true to their hard rock/old school punk roots, but also dabbles in disco and funk.
“But the good kind of disco with octave basslines,” he said.


“ We have a great song called ‘Clap Your Hands.’ But the flagship song, which everyone seems to love and ask us about, will be “ Your Heart is a Muscle (So Work it Out), so we’ll probably do a video for that.”

Feduk noted they are excited to play with Pine  Barrens.
“ They are several members of the band Bonspiel. They play a different kind of grunge roots music like Crazy Horse,” he said.

 Feduk noted Lethbridge has always been good for all three bands, Tallest to Shortest, Red Ram and the Uncas.
“So I may pick up the guitar and play a couple of Red Ram songs We might even do an Uncas song,“ he said.
“It’s going to be amazing.”
The show will begin at 10 p.m. , July 7. There is a $10 cover.
