The 2000 release from King Cobb Steelie.
King Cobb Steelie - the band - is steeped in a tradition similar to that of their namesake. This dub wise punk, electro funk band has made some of the most interesting Canadian pseudo-pop music for the past decade. Constantly changing and evolving, they have become one of Canada's most respected bands.
Grafting sample based pop songs, with beautiful melodies and haunting
choruses, onto their familiar canvas of dub, hip hop and extraordinary
soundscapes, Mayday unearths a treasure chest of sound that can not be
pigeonholed. Ear pleasing producer Guy Fixsen (Laika, My Bloody Valentine,
Slowdive) who worked with the band on Junior Relaxer, was brought in to once
again leave his technical mark on the eleven tracks that comprise the album.
