It’s a running gag in the frozen hinterland of Canada that _________(fill in the blank) moves slower than molasses in January. I would fill that blank with: the memo.
The memo to inform me of this great band, Slow Down, Molasses. I spent a good chunk of my day getting familiar with Slow Down, Molasses through their library on Apple Music. The irony is that I will be telling you that they are going to be touring in the UK this May. I live practically next door to them, and I was blissfully unaware of this band and their music. They toured here in January, and I MISSED IT!!! The Starlite Room is a favourite venue to rub salt into the wound.
I have them on my radar now and will hopefully be aware the next time they pass through town. Hell, I would even go to Saskatoon to see them. A little road trip isn’t a big deal to me. I’m going to Vancouver in May to see mewithYou. I flew to the UK to see King Crimson. We drove to Calgary to see King Crimson. And another trip to Calgary to see Bob Dylan was a waste of good petrol.
If you have Slow Down, Molasses playing a gig even remotely close, go and enjoy the show. In the meantime, enjoy this video.
