Blame Canada!

Hi! A quick blog again this time, based on some cut'n'paste info, more own vinyl rips later. Been a hard, long & wet weekend, still recovering. Those parties are killing me...
Some canadian goodies, not of the most rare kind, but certainly some stuff that most of you should've heard. I guess you have. Enjoy.


Now without a deal, Teaze continued to do club dates in and around the Toronto area but disbanded in 1981. A 'best of' package titled A TASTE OF TEAZE was released in '84 and the compilation OVER SIXTY MINUTES WITH TEAZE, the definitive collection with 17 tracks, in 1990.
Though Teaze in no way enjoyed the same success of many other Canadian groups, it should be noted that they had a unique sound for a Canadian group at that time. Except for Triumph or Rush, few homegrown bands relied on heavy guitar riffs and searing vocals to gain an audience. And the aforementioned two pretty much had that niche covered already. It is noteworthy however that Teaze did enjoy more success with a virtually-virgin audience in Japan than either Triumph or Rush during that time.

Originally formed by Brian MacLeod and Ab Bryant as a sort of 'side project' from Chilliwack in 1980, the group's earliest beginnings included drummer Matt Frennette, ex of Streetheart and Randy Bachman's wife Denise McCann, who had enjoyed a moderately successful disco career a few years earlier on vocals. Frennette soon left to devote his time to his other band Loverboy and was replaced by Bernie Aubin, who incidentally co-wrote Loverboy's "The Kid Is Hot Tonite". Before the end of the year however, it was decided that McCann wasn't right for the job of translating MacLeod's musical vision and was replaced by Darby Mills, already a seasoned session worker and singer of Streetback, a group closer to what MacLeod had in mind than McCann's disco background.

I had Teaze - One Night Stands on vinyl back when. Thanks for this one.

Now another request. Band was called 1994. Featured Karen Lawrence on vocals(Blue by Nature). I have a vinyl rip to Maxell HQ cassette and then to mp3 via Roxio and a soundblaster card. Quality is decent and I'd be glad to upload it. It's not a complete LP. A few tracks are missing and I also have a few tracks from "Please Stand by" which was their last recording. the 1994 debut Cd is recently available for purchase on a european site. I'll have to find the URL. It's on her myspace. So if anyone has a decent rip of this one it would be appreciated.
