Carole Pope and Rough Trade to headline Toronto’s 25th annual Pride Week

TORONTO, May 11, 2005 – Pride Toronto announced today that Carole Pope and Rough Trade will be among the entertainment headliners as Pride Week celebrates its milestone 25th anniversary.

“Having a groundbreaking group of multidisciplinary artists like Carole Pope and Rough Trade as one of our main acts is an absolute thrill,” said Natasha Garda, Pride Toronto Co-chair. “Their music is provocative, cutting-edge and racy – the very qualities we look to embody in the Pride Week festival – and I can’t think of a better artistic match.”

As lead singer, Carole Pope co-founded Rough Trade with songwriting partner Kevan Staples. Known for pushing musical boundaries and using experimental theatre and film to explore various themes on sexuality, Rough Trade pioneered new wave music in Canada, earning three Juno Awards, a Genie Award, and four Gold and two Platinum records along the way.

I’ve been busy doing various sessions and live gigs the last few months, I never seem to have enough time to keep the news section of the site up to date. Here’s my attempt at summarizing what I have been up to.

Since my last update in mid-November I have done some one-off dates with the amazing Carole Pope and a boxing day gig with funky/hip-hop band Cosmic Juice, featuring my old band mate Mike Goyette from Artificial Joy Club. Other dates with Charley Beck, Robert Farrell, J.J. Antrobus and lots of dates with The Long Goners.

I will be doing two shows next week with Robert Farrell and Charley Beck as part of Canadian Music Week in Toronto, see the live dates page for details.

Also in November I did some tracking at Dennis Cameron’s studio, DRC Music, outside Ottawa. I also tracked some tunes with a band called Unknown earlier this month at Distortion Studios.

I am also working on a new studio project right now that we are keeping quiet until we get some of the tunes recorded. We’ve been doing pre-production and hope to record in the next month or two.

As far as drum gear goes, I just got one of the Pearl Eric Singer Signature Snare Drums, it’s 10-ply maple shell, and it’s the only snare drum I have been using since I got it. It has a nice warm and rich tone. I also added an 18″x22″ Pearl Masters Studio BRX kick drum to my collection. I wanted to have the option of using different kick drums in different situations.

I have finally added lots of 30-second MP3’s of various recordings I have done with different bands and artists to the audio page. I still have more to out up, but there are quite a few now to keep you busy for a while if you want to check them out.

A few more video clips have been added as well, and more are on the way when I have some time.

Also new on the web site is the Mailing List. If you want to receive occasional e-mail updates about upcoming live dates, please sign-up.
