Mounties Thrash Rock Legacy Limited Vinyl LP

To crib a line from The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, Canada is big. Really big. If you tried to draw a chalk line joining the birthplaces of Hawksley Workman, Steve Bays, and Ryan Dahleall of them prominently Canadian, all from separate corners of this enormous countrywell, you couldnt. Its too big.
Heres another thing thats BIG: Headphones, the deliriously catchy first single from Mounties, a band that started as a chance meeting between the three men at the 2009 Juno Awards, and became a spectacular, improvised two week recording session three years later. Accompanied by a bizarre, homemade video assembled by Bays himself, the casually brilliant single reached #9 at Alternative Radio and #12 at Modern Rock (BDS), while clearing the path and prepping the troops for live appearances and the release of their debut album, Thrash Rock Legacy.
Building on the resoundingly positive response to Headphones, Mounties have remained a fixture at Alternative radio over the past 18 months, following up Headphones with two more Top 20 hits; the infectiously catchy If This Dance Catches On and the shimmery and progressive Tokyo Summer. Mounties critically acclaimed debut album, Thrash Rock Legacy, is made up of what Dahle calls songs from zero, improvised from the ground-upWorkman on drums, Bays and Dahle on an array of vintage guitars and keyboardsand captured to tape once the three bandmates were finished throwing ideas at each other in an old Airstream trailer sitting outside.
You end up with jammy kind of music but just poppy enough that it doesnt seem too self-indulgent. Adds Dahle: I think were looking for something that excites all three of us at once.
