Checkin’ for Squirrels

You can take the band off PEI, but you can’t take the Island out of the band. Though recorded in Toronto, he Rude Mechanicals maintain a rollicking red-dirt road spirit. “Bill Lynch Girl” deserves a spot in any Maritime medley, even if you must explain who the carnival king is to a Hogtowner. Likely the first song to refer to word-count, “Get Off My Nerves” turns anxiety into a singalong. A Dylan-esque air of spontaneity should win over snooty mainland ears.
