I had the honour and pleasure of seeing these three Canadian streetpunk bands over the past few months...check them out and give them a listen...nice people, top-notch music and right-on politics....
THE REBEL SPELL(from Vancouver): - "The Rebel Spell formed in the fall of 2002, Vancouver City, BC. Canada. Inspired by the original sound of punk rock the Rebels grew up and listened to, it only made sense to continue the tradition and write and perform fast, aggressive music with social ideals. With a blend of 3 chords, fast drums and anthemic vocals, The Rebel Spell deliver Street Punk the way it should be."
KNUCKLEHEAD(from Calgary): - "Eight years of writing and touring have established Knucklehead's position as a powerhouse punk band. Crossing a little Billy Bragg, Clash, and Rancid into a thoroughly interesting kickass blend of tight, well-written anthems. "
don't know much about the other bands but like what I've heard while Knucklehead I gotta agree with you are a really fucking great band- standup fellas they are as well! I still think "Little Boots" is their best. Anybody interested should check out one of 'peg city's better up and coming punk rock n' roll bands The Crackdown. They just got their website up-and-running this week at www.thecrackdown.tk
