TUNS - Throw It All Away

TUNS - unknown

To those whose musical coming-of-age happened in the mid-90's in Canada, this new combo is cause for great excitement, and a case where "supergroup" is no mere boast. Combining the talents of Mike O'Neill (of The Inbreds), Matt Murphy (of Super Friendz/Flashing Lights) and Sloan's Chris Murphy, the trio rotated lead vocals, with each of their individual styles converging at a point of Beatles-esque power-pop perfection. Word is there's an album in the can, so this has the feeling of a working band more than a nostalgia trip — at Long Winter, they even managed to inspire a riled-up moshpit filled by enthusiastic youngsters who weren't even born when those bands listed above were touring Canada and making a name for themselves.

* The title to this one might be something like "Mind Over Matter" — please leave a comment if you know it for sure!
