Price $12.95

The Juno award-winning Wooden Stars both epitomized and transcended the sound of mid-90s indie rock. One of Canada’s greatest bands, they helped build a scene whose members would go on to be associated with some of the country’s most revered acts including Julie Doiron, Islands and Arcade Fire.
With Wooden Stars: Innocent Gears, Malcolm Fraser tracks the highs and lows of this totally unique and influential band.

Malcolm Fraser is a writer, musician and filmmaker based in Montreal. He’s made two music documentaries, Everything’s Coming My Way: The Life and Music of Gordon Thomas (co-directed with Stacey DeWolfe) and Corpusse: Surrender to the Passion. He writes regularly about film and culture for Cult MTL, and plays music with The World Provider, Lion Farm and other projects.

The details are foggy for us, and Malcolm really did his best to make sense of our story. So far, it’s a trip for me to read it. I don’t know what else to say  yet. If you are interested, you can find it at Invisible Publishing. […]
