Salmonblaster (1996)

July 18, 2009
Salmonblaster
Salmonblaster

Band: Salmonblaster
CD Release: Salmonblaster
Year: 1996
Home: London Ontario
Chatham Connection: Bass player Mat Davis is from Wallaceburg and played guitar for the biggest metal/ thrash band to come from Chatham  (M.A.D. / The Mad)1988-1993.

Members:
Matt Worm – vocals, guitar, fx
Mat Davis – bass, guitar
Brady Parr – drums, backing vocals

Notes:
   Formed in early `94, this intense and adventurous three-piece from London, Ontario recently inked a deal with indie label Liquid Records. Its self-titled debut features 14 songs of dramatic, borderline, schizophrenic stylings from punk sentimentalist rock songs, 80s new wave, trance-like dirges and even experimental noise. “When you dream about being in a band, you dream about being in this band,” wrote ID Magazine.

     The band also played on the ‘Tom Green Show’ before it got picked up by MTV.
     In 1997, The Janet Theory invited the band down to play the CAW Hall in Chatham with them and a few other local bands. This was the biggest underground indie show to hit Chatham’s vibrant scene that year.

   The song ‘Freeway’ took the band to a level most bands would like to sit at. The guys gained  heavy rotation and support from Much Music,  and mainly college radio. Around this time, Nirvana was on top of the music scene which allowed bands of this genre a chance to get in the door.
Discography
self-titled CD and cassette (1995)
Vroom!!! 7-inch (1995)

Tracks
Betrayal, Blast Off, Brian Jones, Drive It, Floating Eyes, Freeway, Justafish, Pulse, Shooting Stars, Skyrockets, Sugar Rush, The Perfect Fit, Transistors and Turbines, Visionblur

Artist: Hundred Proof
Year: 2009
Style: Hardcore
Home: Chatham Kent Ontario Canada

Band is:
Nick Sennema – Drums
Troy Fraser – Bass
Danny Wright –  Guitar

  This is only the third pure hard core band to come from Chatham Ontario ( C.O.I. ’91, 4 Hard Core ’92). The first two were high school aged bands, so this band steps it up in musicianship. Not much to say but perfection here. Hard Core is truly about attitude, and that is all that matters here. They play it as well as the best of them and there is no signs of amateur stuff here.  All we can ask for is the spirit and a solid tight band. It’s all here, Period.

It’s A Small World After All (2009)

Sarah Hiltz

Sarah Hiltz

Sarah Hiltz:
listen @ Myspace: http://www.myspace.com/sarahhiltz
  Sarah was kind enough to come over & record backing vocals on “Will You Forgive Me In The end”, a new song I wrote with Jesse V. We did this in April. She did backing vocals on ‘Just’ by FL3P (First line Third Planet) that stood out and made me take notice.
   FL3P was a short lived band, (around 2004)  but a great band. The drummer (Chuck Young) has been a good friend & long time band mate beginning with me in ‘Foster Child’ in 1991 to The Janet Theory & Dead Girls Union.
   The track Sarah Hiltz sings on with FL3P is called ‘Just’ and can be heard here.

  Yep, they called it a day. I went to show Bob & Keegan some love by attending their last show as the R.C.K. at the KBD Hall in Chatham a month ago.

  It was good to catch more good local underground bands on the bill, like Davis Block & 100 Proof.
