"NxNE — North by Northeast Festival, Toronto 2009: Clydesdale @ Silver Dollar"

After the afternoon show, had some non-rock time to stretch my legs and grab a bite to eat, but it wasn't too long before I was back at it, starting off, again at the Silver Dollar. I'd never heard of Clydesdale, but the members' past credentials (Tangiers, Deadly Snakes, Grasshopper, The Killer Elite) were pretty impressive, so I figured I'd take a chance. It turned out to be a vital, exciting set. Classic rock in, say, the way The Only Ones or The Replacements were classic rock, and filled with the sort of energy you might've heard in a Tangiers or Deadly Snakes song. The four-piece were rigourously tight behind Shawn Leger's raspy vox. Even some technical problems with the drums couldn't slow the momentum. No weak songs, though one with Yuri Didrichsons on keyboards had an especially catchy edge to it. A band this good won't be playing the first slot of the evening for long.

Still working on that hot first release.



Clydesdale, bred straight out of Toronto, ON Canada. With roots firmly planted in the city's indie rock lineage, the members of Clydesdale translate their surroundings into their music. Founding members Shawn Leger(guitar, Vocals) and Scott Thompson(Bass Guitar) established themselves on the local club circuit building a loyal fan base. Mid-2008 Marco Moniz(Drums, ex-Killer Elite, Grasshopper and Tangiers) Joined the band propelling then into the studio to record a series of demos. It was during the circulation of these demos that Clydesdale recruited Yuri Didrichsons(Guitar, Ex-Deadly Snakes, Tangiers)
