Hot Pepper

Yet another group hailing from the dynamic Montreal scene (although originally from Guelph, Ontario), The Dymaxions' debut album How The Sick May Help Themselves clocks in at just under 23 minutes. But don't let the short track lengths deter you - each of the 10 tracks is a sweet and succinct little gem. 'Hard Rock In Shallow Waters' is insanely catchy and the massive guitar hook that closes out 'Birdwatching (I Was A Teenage Zombie)' will leave you yearning for more. Alas, the group called it quits in late 2006. However, the album can still be purchased directly from their website or through CD BABY. Better news yet, former Dymaxions bandmaster Gregory Pepper has just released a new album titled Gregory Pepper & His Problems. Word on the street is that this album is just as engaging as any of the output from Pepper's Dymaxions days, and I'll try and post a few tracks ASAP. For now, try these:

Dymaxions - Birdwatching (I Was A Teenage Zombie)
Dymaxions - Hard Rock In Shallow Waters

Gregory Pepper - Baron Blood (sorry for the .wma format, I'm living in the past minus itunes - Brad)

- Andrew M
