The Stills

Montreal rocks! The Stills are another great band that is now coming out of our great city. If you live in Montreal they are definitely not new to you as they won our hearts a few years ago, but they now are releasing their second album and are ready to conquer the world! This quintet, Dave Hamelin, Liam O'Neil, Tim Fletcher, Oliver Corbeil, Julien Blais, was named in none other than Rolling Stone magazine in 2003 as a band to watch. We have watched them and they have become! The Stills have survived large internal changes in that their drummer became their lead singer, the lead guitarist left the band and yet they live on. The band recreates the rock of the 80s à la Echo and the Bunnymen or Big Country for our listening pleasure. Please don't make the mistake of thinking of them as poseurs or a glorified cover band; they are original and creative at the same time. They have tinkered with the sound of their first album that won them so many new fans, but give it a chance people…go into it with an open mind.
