Rock and Roll Show with the JPE
Sault Ste. Marie , Algoma Fall Festival , this sat . Oct. 18 .
The glamour begins with a 4:15 am shocker and a city wide round up to get to the airport for a 6:20 bastard to Montreal . But it doesn't take long to set into road mode , a little Tim's Tea , and the next thing you are in Montreal , and the fiery sunrise taking off from Trudeau was all glory . At Pearson the whole gang meets down at 124 where the Dash 8 's depart for the north . The little planes are better than the jets . They take a little longer but the advantages are more leg room and lower, slower views . And for all the trouble , I want propellers .
Sault Ste Marie was 5 flights and no sleep for two days . And I guess that's the way we like it .

Dave Marsh The True Love Rules
By Vish Khanna

Dave Marsh is a gifted songwriter and his fixation on edgy pop rock has yielded the best record from Halifax’s over-30 set in years. Sitting behind the Super Friendz and the Joel Plaskett Emergency as a solidly inventive drummer, Marsh is more than an unsung sideman and, on rare occasions, his distinctive compositions have snuck onto records by these aforementioned bands. The True Love Rules is Marsh’s first opportunity to stretch out and explore a crossroads that finds punk, glam rock, new wave and folk colliding beautifully. He invites past and present collaborators to help his shape infectious compositions, many of which celebrate Halifax. The big rock of “Backstreets Thread” is a fun roll call for local cronies, while traces of ’70s era Bowie are all over “Darling You, Nothing Else Matters” and “Move You Around.” There’s a cool kind of passion on The True Love Rules, a thoughtfully layered bit of cocky rock’n’roll by Dave Marsh.
