It's 2014, And You Think You're in a Rad Garage Band: The Northwest Company

Posted by on Thu, Mar 13, 2014 at 3:00 PM

Based on recent comments, it would appear most of y'all Slog™ creepers didn't follow Line Out™. Well, FYI, last year I posted, daily, a track by actual '60s garage bands called You're In A Rad Garage Band - GFY. Check out my Beep Beep & the Roadrunner's post; it's a good example of what I was up to. Anyway, I ain't bringing GFY back on a daily basis, but I'll revive it whenever I hear a worthy track/band.

This group, the Northwest Company, hailed from the outskirts of Vancouver, BC. In all they had seven or so 45s, but it's their first single, issued in 1967, "Hard To Cry" b/w "Get Away From It All," (Grenadier) that had the most bite.

The band lasted till sometime in 1974; one member was also in Blue Northern, a group who happen to include Billy Cowsill.

Bump the jump to dig the KILLER flip!!!

@1 we're gonna get through this and MAKE it, me and all the kids of Slog Out. It'll be beautiful. Like my hair, before I went bald.

You gotta get some of your Line Out writers to get out of bed earlier, so the music posts aren't all bunched up in the afternoon. Spread 'em out a little.
