The Great Sabatini is Doing Shit While You and I Sit at Home

A few months ago, we (and know that when I say “we,” I mean “I”) favourably reviewed Matterhorn, the latest by Montreal’s the Great Sabatini. For those of you who didn’t bother to heed my word and at least check ’em out, here’s a sample of how they rock:

In that review, in addition to saying stuff like “…these dudes have a 90s alt-rock edge grinding against their love affair with riffs that crash bolts of lightning into stacks of Orange amps in delivering a rumbling calling card of hellacious noise,” the band’s live show was praised by your truly.
