Have Been Like Old Times

by Nick Craine

My old bandmate, Michael Barlcay is up to something. Apart from being a rock star new dad, ECW Press is releasing a new edition of his tome of CanRock essential reading, Have Not Been the Same.

To commemorate that, a tribute album was assembled, featuring artists covering the music discussed in the book.  This includes Richard Parry of Arcade Fire, Kevin Drew of BSS, Jill Barber, Great Lake Swimmers, Cuff the Duke and more.  They tackle material by Sloan, Grapes of Wrath, the Hip, Art Bergman, the Rheostatics–hell, even Men Without Hats.

Look for the album at Zunior.com.  All proceeds go to the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health.

I donated my services on the album artwork featured above. It’s super challenging to create an image that will work at a 1 inch scale. Such is the internet.
