    Collection 79 - 82

    [engl] Canada has a long and storied history of New Wave. We had some of the best records of the varying styles from Pointed Sticks to Viletones and DOA to Neos. Even our own KBD monsters like Dry Heaves and Siggy Magic. Powerpop wasn't just the previously mentioned Pointed Sticks though. In Victoria BC Canada there was a band that released two strong singles in 1980 on Richards Records and broke up 2 years later. Active for only 3 years, these singles were quickly forgotten and overshadowed by the blistering hardcore of the cities 2nd wave. The band was called Easy Money. Fast Forward a 2 or 3 decades. Piecing together Canada's involvement in punk and new wave has been a hobby of mine for years. Finding the obscurities, the mistakes, the forgotten and the outright terrible has been fun and frustrating. Talking to old rockers, punks, promoters and fans, probing the local fanzines and looking for the things no one has heard before presents a whole slough of different emotions. It also presents a pretty stand-out record collection. To think that there were demo quality recordings of Easy Money - enough to make an LP - lying around un-comped and unheard with exceptional sound quality was truly dumbfounding. Solid songs, excellent playing, infectious, live off the floor, 2 track jamspace demos. They had to be heard. And now they can. Hosehead Records and Neon Taste Records in conjunction with the band are co-releasing Easy Money's demo LP with both singles for your listening pleasure and we guarantee you it is worth the price of admission. Compiling the original two 1980 singles and 9, two-track demos featuring Easy Money at their very best for the first time. A mandatory archival release for Canadian diy music and any fan of Powerpop/Mod-Revival. Not your average, terrible quality, bad sounding 'why-bother' collections. This is a true hidden gem of Northwest Rock n Roll.
