Oh look, more mid-eighties music you either forgot or never knew in the first place. This time it comes courtesy of hard blues rock Canadian indie band, The New Meanies. You know the story by now, this is when I was hearing new music and actually spending money on actual CDs. This is how I came to own the only major label release by these guys.
If you do remember the name, it is most likely for the song “Letting Time Pass” which I’m quite sure is the song that led me to buy their album. But the entire LP is pretty good with many power bluesy numbers and the lead singer’s voice is distinct with this interesting kind of whiney thing going on. I can’t explain it so just have a listen.
Speaking of the lead singer, boy did these guys come out ten or so years too soon. The guy is a doppelganger for Paul Rudd. Seriously, check out the video for “Letting Time Pass”. He’s a slightly chubbier Rudd.
Now, sit back and kick off your Canada Day weekend with an awesome Cancon rocker from their 1998 album of the same name, “Three Seeds” by The New Meanies.
