I’ve been on a temporary work stint in Vancouver since February of this year. Our formerly weekly Cratery nerdouts have turned into monthly events for the squad as a result. Cratery 52 was recorded during one of my brief returns to Toronto earlier this year. Looking at this month’s track list, I can only assume two things: We all must have brought a lot of rock records that day. And we all must have consumed copious amounts of greenery that night. Of course, this is true for most Cratery episodes. But looking back at our very first episode back in January 2009, the track list was almost tipped in the opposite direction in terms of soul. And that’s the beauty of Cratery. You never know what you’ll end up with. T.O. pioneer Johnbronski, who’s been present for many Cratery sessions recently asked “What’s today’s theme?” Well John, we never follow a single theme on Cratery, but if we did, it would be “ILL SHIT”. And Cratery 52 is no different.
