For those of you that can access the CBC: This Beat Goes On and Rise Up, the documentaries on the history of Canadian music in the 1970s and ’80s will be on CBC Aug. 27th, Sept. 3rd., Sept. 10th and Sept. 17 at 9 p.m. EST on all nights. Michael and Margo are interviewed in This Beat Goes On about the influence of the 70’s scene on the Junkies music and about the Junkies contribution to the 80’s scene in Rise Up.
In case you need a second opinion here is some more stuff about Lee Harvey Osmond from Paul Cantin, the long time No Depression beat writer:
If you haven’t already checked out “A Quiet Evil” you should do so…I’m pretty sure you’ll like it….
Just in case you folks haven’t had the chance to check out some of the other artists on the new Latent Recordings website, I thought I’d point the occasional finger…in a good way…
Lee Harvey Osmond is the brainchild of Tom Wilson who has been on the music scene as long as we have. His new creation includes a whole lot of Latent friends including Josh and Andy from The Skydiggers as well as a couple of duets with Margo, Alan and Pete doing their thing and me playing some wacky lead guitar and sitting in the producers chair. It’s and incredible album and something of which we are all extremely proud.
Please take the time to listen to the album and if you like it, buy it. You’ll be doing your part to support inspired independant music.
