Edgar Breau
Canadian Primitive
(Songhammer)
The unearthing of 1970s Hamilton band Simply Saucer was one of the revelations of 2003. The album’s warm reception encouraged frontman Edgar Breau to offer up a dozen new songs. One grabber is “I Miss You My Nico,” featuring the line “You deconstructionists can all go straight to Hell” and a sweet feedback ending. The sing-songy “Mad River” is dedicated to the Miramachi, making Canadian Primitive likely the first artwork to praise both New Brunswick and The Velvet Underground.
