The idea for the Blame Canada EP was spawned while the band was on tour promoting their fun length album “Through The Thickest Haze”. On a drive from Calgary AB to Cranbrook BC, a song came on the radio in the van with this incredibly heavy riff that was good enough to be on any of the first four Black Sabbath records. It turned out to be a Bachman Turner Overdrive song called “Not Fragile”. After that the band got thinking that if they had never heard this song before, how many other awesome Canadian rock songs had they missed out on. That thought turned into many hours of beer drinking and record spinning, and eventually the idea to cover some songs they had discovered. Blame Canada is a tribute to Canadian rock and roll music of years past. It was created as a fun send up and a salute to the greats who laid the foundation for 88 Mile Trip and other modern Canadian bands. The connection came full circle when, while recording the EP, Doug And The Slugs co founder and keyboard player Simon Kendall got wind that the band were re doing “Tomcat Prowl” and came down to the studio to lay down some keys on it. We hope that Canadian music fans, young and old alike, enjoy this tribute to some of the best music our country has ever produced.
