luv392 Upholstery Farm

Upholstery Farm

back in the day Davey, Mickey, John and i would head downtown to this boss club called the Uphostery Farm. it was an amazing space, lots of levels, hideaway nooks and a big dancefloor. the place was totally psychedelicized. it use to be a fabric warehouse back in the 1940s but for a few years in the sixties it was the best place to hang out, pick up chicks and dance our cares away. it closed at the end of 1968 due to shady dealings but i will never forget the groovy tunes we would shake and shimmy to every night at the Upholstery Farm.

luv377 The Cold War

The Cold War

as a kid in the early eighties new wave pop music of was a fitting soundtrack to the frozen landscapes of a Canadian winter. the blend of new technologies with a post-punk attitude intensified by a reawakening of Cold War tensions altered the narrative of pop music. icy synths, effected guitars and stark drum machines reflected the societal anxiety of hurtling toward an unknown future. as a younger version of myself looked over the ice and snow, unsure of my own place in the world, this sound made sense. still does.
