"The Morning After are of particular interest: the relatively new band is still in single digits in terms of live shows it has played in Winnipeg, but already the group shows promise of growing into an energetic live act . . .I encourage you to see the band on its own, before it is swept up into a furor of activity."

"Oh man. Get ready for this one, people, because The Morning After is going to blow you away with a 10 song, 34 minute blast of straight forward rock'n'roll that will hit you so hard it will flatten your faux-hawk, straighten your flares and scrub your trendy tribal tattoos right off your skin. Yes, this album is that good-a no frills, classic rock rooted from a five piece, which, like the Hold Steady and the Marah, is a resounding call to arms for those who simply refuse to let rock'n'roll die without a fight. What's the secret? Nothing other than tight playing; beautifully raw, live production values and a fabulous singer/songwriter in the form of Jean-Guy Roy, a stumblebum looking dude whose wailing voice is the essence of primal scream passion. Picking a fave tune fromt hsi 10-pack is a difficult task, but for contrast's sake, why not try the rave-up Not Your Fault or the remarkably bittersweet, midtempo love/hate song Declaration of Codependence? ----JK"

The Morning After


File Under: The wild night before.

These days everybody's got a gimmick. Everybody except The Morning After. Unless you think well-crafted, straight-up pop-rock is a gimmick. Because that's what you get on this strong 10-cut debut laced with jangly Beatlesque melodies and harmonies, Floydian moodiness and basslines, and passionately gritty vocals. Standouts: The wiry, hard-driving Not Your Fault and (I've gotta friend) and She Don't Like It; the punchy yet poppy Hauptbahnhof. -Darryl Sterdan * * * 1/2

"WCMA's Review"

"Over at the Zoo, what The Morning After lacked in onstage nudity it made up for with placenta jokes. TMA guitarist Jean-Guy Roy was equal parts pumped musician and pumped new dad because his baby girl had been born just the day before. Launching into a frenetic set chock full of mod-rock goodies, the four-piece was on top of its game. Pure energy poured from every guitar string, every key and every cymbal, and more tight sets like this will undoubtedly rocket The Morning After into next-big-thing territory." -Jen Zoratti UPTOWN 26/10/06

"The Morning After"

These Winnipeg mod rockers will shake up '60s style. If you dig keyboards, catchy pop hooks and The Beatles, you won't go wrong here.

"Live Performance Review"

The Morning After is a heady blend of Britpop, neo-psychedelia and North American indie rock. The Morning After's shows are high-energy, no-frills affairs distinguished by loads of energy and passion...Roy throws himself about the stage like a dervish and his otherworldly scream can curdle blood when a song reaches its crescendo...Carr, all shades and hair, comes alive with a presence not seen in a keyboard player since Bobby Wiseman trod the boards with Blue Rodeo.

The Morning After (Indie)



Formed in April of 2004 by 5 friends in small town Niverville, MB. The Morning After quickly took the Winnipeg music scene by storm. Recording a debut album, manic over the edge performances, winning Winnipeg's longest runninng battle of the bands, and playing multiple showcases including 3 junofest performances and 2 Western Canadian Music Awards performances in both Vancouver in 2005 and back home in Winnipeg in 2006 all the while gaining critical acclaim, a dedicated fan base, and heavy rotation on college radio and nationally on XM satelite radio . Two years later and one less member The Morning After is hard at work testing out its new material on its Winnipeg fan base and has started the recording process of a follow up EP to be released in spring of 2007 with extensive touring to follow.
