(( RECOMMENDED )) The late, great Phono-comb!

PHONO-COMB Fresh Gasoline CD
"Sixteen instrumentals and a nostalgia play conspire to make an atmosphere collection of tonal colorations from sickly green to turgid grey."

Following the dissolution of Kids In The Hall in-house band, Shadowy Men On A Shadowy Planet, Reid Diamond and Don Pyle started Phono-comb with Dallas Good of The Sadies and Beverly Breckenridge of Fifth Column. Picking up and taking off from where Shadowy Men left off, Phono-comb added a second guitar and created a loose, dramatic and punchy sound not completely unlike other instrumental Canadian bands (Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Do Make Say Think).
