The Très Bien Ensemble

Some would recognize The Très Bien Ensemble as four-fifths of retired Toronto indie combo Wayne Omaha. A fair number would recognize guitarist Greg Smith as the bass player for The Weakerthans. Some might recognize keyboardist Yawd Sylvester as guitar player for The Violet Archers. A select musical few might remember that Smith and guitarist Matt James comprised The Keep On Keepin' Ons and were two-thirds of the driving force behind Instant Klazzix. Former Wayne O guitarist Daniel 'Paco' Paquette has taken up the bass and Kirk Hudson reprises his role behind the drum kit. The old adage is that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. And so it is with The Très Bien Ensemble. These are guys who go together well--the fellas, four fifths of whom went to high school together, have been playing music together in various combinations since as far back as 1989.

Penny Blacks

Penny Blacks is the name of a musical concern from the east coast of Canada. It was started by a guy, then other guys and girls joined in. Sometimes it's still just the one guy. But then, the next time it could be 4 or 5 other folks, too. They play music that sounds lonesome and gritty. They play music that might have come from an old jukebox at the Hampton diner. It's pretty good. It's pretty honest. You should try it.
