From the Vault: Out of the Fog – The Halifax Underground 1986

out_of_the_fog_cover_1986

 

A wonderfully rare record appeared in MCR (that’s our live broadcasting studio for those of you who aren’t up on the CKUT lingo) a few days ago, and the station’s been buzzing about it ever since! This piece of Canadian music history compiles songs from a multitude of Halifax bands approaching their fourth decade. The album quickly moves from reverb-drenched pop to heavy, grungy goodness and beyond. Though the only thing tying these artists together is their collective scene, you can really HEAR it. A beautiful picture in time. Big thanks to Sarah Fahie, host of Beyond the Horizon, for digging this gem out of the CKUT library.

Good luck finding yourself a copy! Here’s a little write-up on the album if you want to dive deeper:

July 2, 2013: CKUT TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE CHARTS

Hey pals,
Back to the real world after a dreamy weekend spent visiting old friends in Ottawa and then taking off to the country outside of Wakefield, QC. Spending the rest of the long weekend on a beautiful, isolated farm run by some rad CKUT alum was such a nice change.. did some hiking, ate amazing food, and gave my muscles a serious workout weeding in the fields all day. Feels good, y’know?
