Album Review - Remember Marksam - For You and All Your Friends
Alexis Marija Brett - Entertainment/Pop Editor
From the Feb 27 print edition

If you listen to bands like Good Charlotte and New Found Glory, check out Remember Marksam’s brand new CD, For You and All Your Friends, set for release in March. You can soon purchase songs from the CD online. Originally from Guelph, Ontario and now living outside of Vancouver, the trio features Don McLean on guitar and lead vocals, Jimmy Ponting on bass and backing vocals and Chris Cadigan on drums. Jimmy and Don worked together to write every song on the album. All 12 tracks are melodic and upbeat, besides a few slower songs such as “Fall”, “Dreamin’ (Intro)” and “Steve French (Outro)”. The album’s lyrics cover topics such as teenage love, parties and depression, and they lament about the hardships of life and relationships. The group is preparing for a Canadian tour this spring, and is planning a CD release party at The Loft on March 20. For more info on the band, check out www.myspace.com/remembermarksam. - The Omega

Bio

Originally from Guelph and Mississauga, Ontario Don, Jimmy and Chris packed their bags and moved across the country to begin work on their debut release as Remember Marksam. Now based outside of Vancouver, British Columbia the trio have already released a full length album, “For You and All Your Friends”, produced by Clayton Creed, and toured across Canada. The album has since been released on itunes and is selling at an increasing rate. Collectively, Remember Marksam works hard to deliver a high energy, interactive live show, which musically could be compared to Fall Out Boy or early New Found Glory.

The future looks bright for Remember Marksam. 2008 already has already seen a cross Canada Tour as well as a growing fan base. Sharing the stage with other up and coming Canadian artists such as Sydney and Above All Else as well as appearances at events such as New Music West and Youth 4 Cancer will undoubtedly help the band make their mark in Canadian music.
