Have you ever been to Montreal? Last time I was there I saw a guy in a frog costume dancing and juggling flaming sticks while a midget clown played a tiny accordion for loonies. That's a true story, folks! It's a real scene. The part of the world that's a little bit Canada, a little bit France that hates Canada and is ignored by France is probably the strangest place in the northern hemisphere (except for maybe that church in the Czech Republic that's full of skulls, but hey, I digress...)
Fire Works is a melodic, positive, entertaining, and most interestingly coiffed LP to come out in years, all courtesy of Big Ugly Fish Recordings. This record takes its cues from the band's early influences like American Steel, the Broadways, Jawbreaker and Fifteen, and strains it through a sieve of 70's rock, like a French Canadian wine that will kick your dick off, get you drunk, eat all your poutine (Chips, Canadian Cheese and gravy, fast food) and find you hung over in the morning humming the most melodic and positive tunes of the bands storied career. Did I mention that these dudes fought a whole city with Against Me!? Well, I don't like to name drop, so take my word for it or ask them all about it when they come through your town.
The emo kids like 'em, the punk kids like 'em. No one quite knows what to do with them because they've got three meaty guitars, a front man “Hugo Mudie”, that exists at that elusive vortex where Hank Von Helvelte, Chuck Ragan and the bar where Cirque du Soliel clowns go to get drunk all converge, and haircuts that would scare the shit out of almost any mum.
Expect an exhaustive touring schedule from The Sainte Catherine’s for the Fire Works cycle. They're loved in Europe, Canada and the stinkiest most festering pits in all of the US so get out your mustache, cut your bangs at a weird angle and give me a "Tabarnak!" for The Sainte Catherine’s. Um...also, they've got funny names and they're not above wearing vests. Did I mention that? Okay. I thankenyou.
