On the way back into the big city, I picked up the new Rolling Stone – mainly ’cause Saskatchewan’s own Sheepdogs were on the cover, picked to be the first unsigned band ever to make the RS cover. Great story, and great to see success come to four guys who have worked so hard.
Also great: these two quotes in the Austin Scaggs story:
“We got our picture taken with [Stephen Harper],” says [lead singer Ewan] Currie. “Which is akin to having your picture taken with Bush. I mean, people really hate this guy in the artistic community.”
[Upon spotting, in a Saskatoon drinking hole, a drunk in a spandex shirt with a huge tattoo on his face]: “He’s probably from Delisle,” says Cullen.
I love it. Anyway, here’s one of their tunes. Congrats to them, and to their hometown. Much deserved.
