Product Notes

Anti-folk/rock troubadour, writing life that haunts neon-lit doorways and threadbare rooms. A musical disciple of Howlin\' Wolf and Crazy Horse, honing a blend of post-punk folk in bars from Saskatoon to Shanghai, Montreal to Moscow, and Halifax to Helsinki. Fiercely independent, and one of the hardest-working Canadian musicians around with over 20 years of Replacements-inspired scrappy club shows notched into his Telecaster. Alun Piggins has entrenched himself in the business as a fearless self-starter, writing, producing, and engineering releases on his own label, Moldy Floor Records. His international focus has taken him across Canada and the US, China, Russia, Finland, and the UK. And his impassioned songwriting and guitar-shredding performances have won him audiences across all genres. He has shared the stage with artists ranging from Fugazi to Peter Case. Cleaning Women (Finnish avant-garde techno) to Be Good Tanyas. Cat Power to Fred Eaglesmith. \'Balladesque\' was released in 2000 and was Alun's first solo CD. It was recorded at Chemical Sound in Toronto and at Alun\'s own Moldy Floor Studios. Very special thanks to the artists who guested on this release: Justin Peroff, Michelle Josef, Mike Munro, James Gray. John Francom, Don Kerr, Mark Kesper and Oh Susanna. And yes, the CD cover is a blatant rip-off of The Replacements 1984 album Let It Be.
