I was watching Men in Trees last night. It’s a quirky little show about an author who goes to Alaska for a speaking engagement and ends up moving there. The show is called Men in Trees because there are very few women who live in the small town.
Anyway, as I watched the episode last night, a song played in the background. Shows do this a lot. Sometimes I recognize the song, sometimes I don’t. It usually doesn’t effect my enjoyment of the show. Last night though, the song they played totally took my mind off of the story.
I couldn’t believe what my ears were hearing. Could it be? I concentrated on the song in the background. Yes, it was. They were playing “Keep” by superGARAGE.
I can’t say enough good things about superGARAGE. I first saw they play in 1994 in Hamilton. They put on an amazing show and I was an immediate fan. I bought their cassette tape and a T-shirt. The following year, they put out the album on CD.
This is an independent group for Thorold, Ontario. This was a small release from 1995 and it just showed up on a brand new episode of primetime television. I couldn’t believe it.
The band is currently on hiatus. But their music is amazing. You can find them online easily enough. I am listening to their first E.P. Duct Tape right now. It never gets old for me. I love these guys. It was awesome to hear them on T.V. last night. superGARAGE in trees!
