Chaddus Provost Jamming the Drums in the UgA Dungeon

We’ve recently moved into our new location in Woodstock NB, and in the midst of moving and maneuvering things around our new space, we took a break to record some of in-house speed demon, Chaddus Provost’s unrelenting drum beats. Chaddus plays in the death metal band, Forest Soul, and the absolute rock band, Monteith.

Chaddus’s franken-kit includes..

– A home-made snare
– Axis AL2 kicks with Iron Cobra beaters
– Three hi-hats
– A mini bass drum
– Occasionally 1-2 bass drums made from water barrels
– An actual sawblade
– and an array of Sabian cymbals

Unbreakable Hatred Blows Away The Charlotte St Arts Centre

What a killer night! Unbreakable Hatred was joined my locals acts Cable Crusher, I Monolith, and Soulstice for a well rounded night of heavy hitting metal.

Things started off thrashy with Soulstice starting off the night. A tight three piece with fast-as-hell riffage, low and heavy vocals from the bass player, and surgical precision from the fast-footed drummer.
After that, I, Monolith took the CSAC stage for the second time with us at The Underground Alliance, solidifying in our minds that they just can’t fail to deliver. Te night also marked their first performance with two guitarists, as opposed to playing as a four piece.

Richie Young Re-Releases Traveling Man Blues

As far as Maritime Blues goes, Richie Young is certainly becoming known well as a Travelling Man commuting from Maritime town to town playing his own brand of the Blues. Richie’s stripped down song writing style in not just this track but all of his, hearkens back to the days of yore when the travelling musician on his own with his guitar strapped over his back, a small suitcase in tow, traveled from town to town peddling his music for small crowds in dark and dingy Blues bars and in these days of change modern independent breweries.

The track ‘Travelling Man Blues’ is everything any Blues fan could ask for, gravely vocals with a slinky twang, the harmonica almost acts as though it’s Richie’s own back ground vocals and of course Richie’s soulful guitar strumming brings this track together as a memorable and comforting tune filled to the brim with more Blues than any fan could ask for.

LIVE RECORDING – The Matt Comeau Band @ Grimross

Greetings to the followers and friends of the Underground Alliance! Not too long ago, our Recording Tech, Jake Duffie, got the chance to record The Matt Comeau Band at Grimross Brewing. The night of familiar faces, drinking, and atmosphere had been brought to us by the good people at Roots & Soul Promotions. We could spend paragraphs trying to capture the feel of that performance, but luckily, we don’t have to! Listen in for free HERE, or at the bottom of this post for a few of the band’s original tunes.

Later that night, Jont & The Infinite Possibility played a set that is tough to put the right words to. Something magical between the theatrical performances of David Bowie or Prince, and the intimate, humble feel of your local indie band, but bigger. I can only hope we will be uploading parts of that set someday soon, but until then, do yourself the favor of checking out their music!

Jake Cormier hits the UGA Recording Studio

We here are the Underground Alliance Recording Studio had a fantastic time working Jake Cormier’s first session with us. A regular partner in crime to Richie Young, Cormier is well adapt to a similar style of the blues, with a little more traditional rock n’ roll fuelling his fire.
Throughout the evening of Jake’s session, we completed a original single, and wrapped up with a video performance of another of his tunes. Richie even stopped in to lay down a saucy harmonica track. The first thing that really stood out to me when working with Jake, was his voice. He may be a little soft spoken to talk to in person, but it was a whole other level when he opened up in front of the mic. Smooth, deep, powerful, and on pitch. Some of the most impressive vocals before hitting an FX chain that I’ve had the pleasure to work with.

Panda Bee Catastrophe

4/20 Show at Dolan’s Pub, Featuring Panda Bee Catastrophe, Monteith, and Luke & The Drifters – Underground Al Show Review

The sound check was in full swing and the loveable lovely’s at the door swept my cover fee and gave me a hug with their eyes alone. The tables were set and the auction was on. I always preferred silent auctions because it really gave me a chance to cry someone else’s tears. If there is one thing on this moldy sandwich we call earth that touches my soul more than music, it’s art. And with our friends at Marijuana for Trauma Inc. standing by to answer any questions or just lend a smile, you immediately felt like you were a part of something much greater, something charitable and pure. Organic alternatives to sludge and symptoms, our creator, whether it be nature, God or Dio himself, gave us those plants as a gift and gave us the will to seek them out.
