The Clumsy Lovers are an eclectic Bluegrass Celtic jam band based in Coquitlam, British Columbia, with more than 2000 live performances in a decade to its credit. The current line-up consists of Jason Homey on banjo and mandolin, Chris Jonat on bass guitar and vocals, Rebecca Smith on Fiddle, Tyler Thompson on drums, and Trevor Rogers on vocals and guitar.
Previous line-ups included Brad Gillard (banjo), Cameron Jonat (drums), Andrea Lewis (fiddle), and Gord Robert (drums).
If The Cardigans’ previous album was majestic and mature, “Super Extra Gravity” is an unruly and spectacular album. Still, there are similarities. The band succeeds in retaining everything that was good about ”Long Gone Before Daylight” while, at the same time, rebelling against it. Continuity and reaction in one.
There’s not much difference between a playground bully, a corporate CEO and the self-absorbed figureheads of many of the world’s current administrations. They’ll all tell you that by surrendering your lunch money or tax dollars, they’re working toward “your best interests.” And we all realize these people are merely imposing a will of their own choosing to enhance their own mythology. Of course, fake benevolence isn’t the sole domain of public figures: Life has taught us the most insidious masters of manipulation come in more covert and intimate forms. Consider your friends, lovers and spouses.
