  • Drum Machines And Jeff
    1,022 words
    I love modern Canadian Music. When my band was starting out years ago I was entranced by a small band from Windsor who had just released their first album.

Critics at one point disliked Jeff Martin's resemblance to Jim Morrison in both appearance and vocal work. Rock purists voiced their disgust in the use of drum machines. My fathe...
