MUSIC REVIEW (Alternative)
Stand GT, The
Good On The River

Artist Home Page

Label: Slag-O-Matic Records Released: 12/1/2000

Believe it or not, The Stand GT have been around since the 80's, and despite their Glengarry home-base they are regularly seen playing on the stages of - or at least frequenting shows at - Ottawa clubs. When not performing as a group, lead singer Chris Page can be seen performing solo as his alter-ego Glen Nevous.

"Good On The River" marks TSGT's third full-length CD, amidst a slew of other releases including singles and compilation appearances. Memories of Teenage Fanclub / Eugenius / Doughboys and even early REM come flooding back from the first lines of "On Vaccuuming"... and other influences as diverse as the Gruesomes, the Ramones and maybe even some hint of some country sound I can't quite put my finger on. Clean production, smooth yet crunchy guitars and Black Market Clash-era doo-wop backing vocals combine into an irresistible guitar-pop gem. That's not to say that this gem is polished to perfection, nor should it be: Dave (Julie Doiron & The Wooden Stars, Werbo) Draves' unassuming production is clear and thick, just the way you want it when you're cruising out highway 7 in your beat-up AMC Pacer towards the Crazy Horse Saloon looking for one more pint of milk and tequila before last call. Milk and tequila?!? Smooth. But with bite. Just like The Stand GT.

Not for the hook-laden-pop intolerant.
