Holy Can-con, Batman!  Seriously, do you ever hear Sloan down in K.C.?


I know they were in Buffalo a little over a week ago, but yeah,I wonder if they ever played K.C.?
I never saw them live, but did see 'Kearney Lake Road' a few times back in the day. It was a band two members (Murphy and Ferguson) were in before Sloan. Btw, Jay Ferguson had an awesome radio show back during that time on CKDU-FM (Dalhousie University's campus station). I used to call him up and request songs all the time.
Obscure stuff I hadn't thought of in years, but Raditch will appreciate it.

I flip around the radio constantly and don't mind listening to an artist I don't usually like if the song is good. That said, if Boston comes on, the station is switched immediately. Put Kansas in that category along with other bands of that late 1970s and early 1980s genre.

Always turn off:
-Train
-The Fray (or "The Fway" if you wanna' make fun of their awful singer)
-Mumford and Sons
-Avett Brothers
-Linkin Park

I'm sure there's some alternate reality where these 5 bands are performing on a "Festival of Suck".

I don't think I have a "never turn off" list, because even some of my favorite bands have songs that I'm not crazy about, or just get sick of. I was scarred on a camping trip, in my teens, when I jizzed my pants, freaked out, and cranked Iron Maiden's "Can I Play With Madness", simply because it was on the "regular" radio. My friends said something to the effect of: "umm, this kinda' sucks". Maiden's one of my all-time favorites, but yeah... that song does kinda' suck.

I saw them play nightclubs in Buffalo a few times in the mid 90's.  Also saw them play at Maxwell's in Hoboken in '99.  I loved Sloan up through Pretty Together, but then they seemed to devolve into their own tribute band, if that makes sense.  Still, they put out some great music in the 90's, with Twice Removed (controversially) listed as the greatest Canadian album ever in 2000 by Chart Magazine.  I won't turn them off.

I love Sloan and due to conflicts have missed them three times in concert here in the Twin Cities. The last two times was due to timing issues and family obligations. The first time I didn't realize they were in town until the night of the show and by the time I'd reached the venue, they'd already finished, the set being rather early by concert headliner status. Someday I'll definitely make it to one of their shows. Sloan might be a bit past their prime as an album band, but they still bring it with the singles (the recent "Spin Our Wheels" was great) and have such a deep catalog of songs that there is plenty to listen to and for them to play live. I like that the four members have been together since 1991 and even the keyboard sideman has been with them since 2006.
