When Angus Fraser was only a small child, he began showing amazing talents the world had never seen before. Angus was a natural in the field of micro-organism technology by the age of seven and by the age of nine the young Fraser boy was quickly mastering the art of “Zeng-Shui.” However, it soon became apparent that the young child’s passion lie in the realm of psychedelic space rock.

By 1997, Angus Fraser formed his first band “Lazyeye” with friends in his hometown of Waterloo, Ontario. Taking notes from the Smashing Pumpkins, Fraser would compose tight excursions into pop-rock. These early experiences in song writing soon lead to home recordings of Fraser’s early compositions.

After the break-up of Lazyeye, Fraser would forge ahead with his craft under the solo guise of “Tenth of May.” By this time, Angus Fraser had developed a knack for arranging pop-influenced vocals over an array of sometimes ambient, sometimes abrasive musical landscapes. Fraser’s skills in recording these compositions were also becoming sharper, as can be heard on Tenth of May’s first long-play disc “Thorn.” Tenth of May’s follow up to Thorn would be the psych-pop compilation “All for Headphones.” All For Headphones would fly under the radar as one of the Kitchener/Waterloo/London area’s finest recordings of the year. “La Voiture D’Espace (Spacecar)” would be named the Waterloo areas “Best Song You’ve Probably Never Heard.”

Fraser’s most recent recording, the 2006 release “Taurus,” features a musically matured Fraser at his best. The six song EP takes listeners into a completely unique soundscape as it challenges musical conventions with odd time signatures, distinct tunings and unconventional rock beats.

Two and a half years after the release of “Taurus,” Fraser has assembled a live show that will see percussionist Brad Weber (Winter Equinox, Caribou) and guitarist Aaron Fitzpatrick taking to the road to perform Tenth of May’s vast catalogue. With a deep box of master craft to draw from, the band will be riding a full tank for a good while too come.
