Winnipeg guitarist/singer/song-writer/label head/community-organizer Greg Macpherson has been releasing albums and touring this world for over a decade. Imagine a dramatic splicing of Bruce Springsteen, Billy Bragg John K. Sampson (of the Weakerthans) and Joe Strummer and you'll just have a thumbnail sketch of this strikingly original figure.
To read my review of his show last week at the West End Cultural Centre go to The Big Takeover.

MRML is a blog about the devestating effects of culture: music, politics, comics plus etc. blah blah blah. At times MRML will post fine, unpurchasable three-chord obscurica (punk, pop-punk, new wave, mod, power-pop, gospel, reggae, hardcore, rockabilly, folk, country...whatever.) - - - - - - "The otherwise unavailable files in this blog are posted for a limited time and are intended for educational, non-commercial use.
