News:: (sort of) New music from Chris Page

I've been asking for a new Camp Radio record for an eternity now... but to no avail. The power punking trio is one of the most fun bands you'll find here in Canada. They write catchy, straight ahead hooks than make you move and every day we wait for new songs is one too many.

Looks like I'll have to settle for a new solo record from Chris Page instead. The front man for the band is back with another one-man journey and the track listing shows some new material and some reworked classics.

The lead single - Two Twenty-Twos is much more melodic than I expected to hear from the Bragg-influenced troubadour, almost as if he jumped into the Stuart Murdoch's pool for a quick dip. The strums still resonate and the emotion is still there, he's just added another layer. When your head starts bobbing, you realize the 1:47 song is kind of like a musical Lay's chip. You can't listen just once.
