Back in the 90’s, the Thrush Hermit boys delivered two great full length records: Homewreck and Clayton Park, of which Clayton Park was my personal favorite. So much so, that I still listen to it (which says something about the longevity of the music). Seriously, when Clayton Park hit, I had never heard anything like it; it was straight rock n’ roll with no bullshit filler or over pretentious guitar solo’s. It was like Bon Scot AC/DC mixed with CCR, awesome. I predicted huge things for the band, and was surprised when they did not hit the big time. Listening to the album now, it’s clear that it was ahead of its time and if it was released now, the boys would enjoy their due success.
Additionally, lead singer of the band, Joel Plaskett is practically a Canadian music icon so go out and support the band when they come to your hood. Believe me, you’ll thank me later
big shout out to Canadian music lover and friend of the blog Brenda for letting me know about this bit of essential music info!
