What began as a humble, hour long dig-diary is now a vital, vinyl ritual, complete with it’s own cult following, monthly party and award-winning logo. We begin our 3rd year of Cratery with a 2nd. The 2nd official edition of Dollarate: our post-holiday guide to wallet-friendly digging. Theoretically, the records on this month’s podcast are all records that you should be able to find for $10 and under. Please don’t be that dude that drops $20 on Fancy’s Wild thing LP in the Cosmos beats and breaks section. As usual, Kaewonder, Serious and I go one-for-one on some dollar bin heat that just might have you sifting through a stack of Roger Whittaker/Nana Mouskouri/Mantovani records at the local Goodwill you’d all but given up on. Don’t forget to join us for Cratery Live: This Saturday February 5th and the first Saturday of every month at Red Light (1185 Dundas St west).

I spent a lot of my formative years digging in MTL. Back when it seemed like on every random street, you would find a record store that would pop up and then disappear within months, me and the crew would easily come up on Lee Gagnons, Sloches, Ian Carrs, and Ekambi Brillants. I wouldnt consider this to be a great record by an stretch of the word, but it does have a few moments here and there… and of course… DRUMS.
Excellent Psych-ish/Soul tune on this obscure rock album. Its kinda hard to find and sort of sought after because some of the dudes from Kiss sang backup vocals on it. Back in the day, these were pretty easy to come across, as for the most part, it looks like a pop vocal record. I found 2 of these at one of my favourite record stores in Calgary. Yep, I was pretty happy. Traded one of them for some 45 that i was desperate for and this is the other.
Lyn is still working on music but, it doesn’t really strike the same chord as her cult classic “Take Me With You”…
