For some time it was maybe way too much powerpop and now it’s just too much punk/hc junk posted. I’m glad I found Canada’s Pink Steel to even it up.
Just as with Japan I wish I knew a little more about the early 70’s Canadian punk/wave scene. Considering I sometimes want to see myself as half Canadian. My father flow over to Vancouver in 1970/71 to find a job and make the family emigrate. He really wanted to make it to the USA(The love of America runs in the family.) but thought it would be easier to make it to Canada first. A big strike broke out in Vancouver and all the money my mom sent had been spent and he had to return back to good ‘ol Sweden again. Bummer. A year later or so they got divorced. And a fucked up kid had to go through life trying to get attention from his father through different means like stealing, being a punk and don’t give a fuck about school. Didn’t work ha ha.
Ok, Pink Steels second 7″ here. Both tracks really rocks my cotton pants off. Super catchy. “Won’t come in your hand” might attract the powerpop crowd a little bit more while “Some of the things that you do” got more filth in it. Quality wise this is just as great as another powerpop/punk band from Canada: Pointed Sticks. Really!
