Hester Moxy Frouvous (8) RE: Moxy Frouvous & T.O. circa 1990 16 Mar 03


I've met Jian Ghomeshi several times, and he is every bit as much a twit as he appears to be on TV. But I actually didn't mind Moxy Frouvous's music; it was fun. Nothing terribly "intellectual" about it though. The "Authors" song was pretty pretentious, but I took it to be ironic.

I prefer the early Barenaked Ladies, though.

And my personal favourite from the Toronto busker scene of that era was The Lost Dakotas, an acoustic cow-punk duo, who recorded two CDs: "Last Train to Kipling" and "Sun Machine."   Both long OOP, but pick them up if you ever see them in delete bins or used record stores. Fantastic! And if we're playing "one degree of separation", the Lost Dakotas have musical ties to the current bands The Sadies and Stratochief, and singer/songwriter Adam Faux.

Cheers, Hester
