I remember this video that used to be on MuchMusic back in the day, it was some generic pop punk band, the video was them playing on a cruise ship while some pageant or beauty show was going on? I don't know, it's just a random video that stuck in my head, I remember liking the song, and it is lost to the broken hard drives of the past lol
No problem, glad I'm your favourite, haha. Smallman was one of the definitive labels from that era, I actually just did a list of essential albums for a Canadian music media outlet and I recommend you check it out. Carpenter, Moneen and Sick City are my absolute favourites:
While I'm not a huge Ten Second Epic fan they still have a few good songs. "Something Beautiful" by Cauterize almost made the cut, but didn't last minute. The Artist Life's full-length was a little disappointing, but the EP they did in 2008 through Underground Operations was cool and you might like it.
I looooooooove Moneen. Is Carpenter still doing their thing? Because I think I recently grabbed a few albums by them.
will check out the other stuff, for sure. ¡Gracias señora Remus!
