Failures' Union & The Mnemonics.


















Capital Distraction presents...
FAILURES' UNION - Buffalo, NY.

In early 2004 FAILURES' UNION came together in Buffalo, NY. Their sound is reminiscent of much of the great indie and alt-rock of the 1990's, with hints of The Lemonheads, Dinosaur Jr, Guided by Voices and Superchunk layering their simple catchy songs. They are a band that are doing things for all the right reasons and steering clear of t...rends. They are playing a style of music they grew up on and that they never stopped loving. Features members of LEMURIA, THE EXIT STRATEGY & THE GRAIL.

THE MNEMONICS - Ottawa. First show.

This will serve as THE MNEMONICS first "real" show after having played in a garage in the middle in the day. These are some familiar faces trying on a new hat. This time playing some insanely catchy power pop. Members of CENTRETOWN CRIPPLERS, GARAGA & THE ALLRIGHTS.

METZ - Negative Space/Automat 7"

Toronto's METZ are an unstoppable force. They are an absolutely incredible live band have been killing it consistently on the 7 inches they've been releasing on the WE ARE BUSY BODIES label. They just released the third and last record of a three 7 inch set. The songs absolutely rip and continue the progression this band has been on since they released the first record a long time ago. Insanity!















Do yourself a favor and download this for free from WE ARE BUSY BODIES and then buy yourself a copy of the 7". You won't regret it.

Rumor has it that they will be playing here on November 26th.
