Guitarist Andrew Dickinson from Juno-nominated Tricky Woo and his earnest lineup goes in the wayback machine to the late ’60s when psychedelia met the earliest incarnations of heavy metal. Picture Sabbath and Jefferson Airplane looking for a fight after getting blitzed together, and you’re somewhere close to the sound with which this double-drummed Montreal six-piece outfit wants to subjugate the planet. Own this now, damn you!

Release Date: Dec. 4



* 1/2 (out of five)





This painful mish-mash is about as interesting as watching glaciers melt. If the fate of the world hangs on performances from B- grade hacks such as Linkin Park, then you best break out the SPF 100. Live Earth is destined to go down as the most disingenuous celebrity wank-off since SCTV’s Telethon for Gold.
