Strange-folk phenomenon Wax Mannequin AKA Christopher Raymond Adeney is well-travelled. He has traversed a range sonic and physical terrain this past decade. Through his catalogue of secretly renowned recordings and his riotous live performances at countless venues and festivals, Wax continues to bring his essential voice and vision to both sides of the Atlantic. His legend grows through word-of-mouth as his music is passed from hand-to-hand — his influence trickles down from the minds of wayward kindred souls, insidiously seeping into the poetic heart of this country.
John and Tony Kastelic left their home in the southern Alberta prairies and made their way to the west coast, forming NO MOTHERS on the audacious hunch that a band fronted by two violists could folk-rock with the best of them. Drawing on their classical training, a background in fiddle, and a taste for the raw and groovy, the Brothers K front a roaring, no-holds-barred, fretless outfit that will forever change the way you feel about the viola.
