It's Canada Day, plus Mike McDonald's Birthday a week ago, so I bring you one of my favourite bands of all time, Jr. Gone Wild. McDonald and his cohorts used to make me smile widely on a regular basis at the Spectrum with their unholy blend of rawk and roots and punk and pop. The following tune, I Don't Know All That (from the perfect album Too Dumb To Quit), may hold my personal record for most deliberate spins, if I kept records of such useless trivia. I definitely played this song so much at the record store I worked in that one (or more) of my co-workers tried to hide it, but my fellow Jr. fan sniffed it out so we could convert more unsuspecting locals to the fine flavours of JGW.

McDonald also sings on Idyl Tea's new song, listen to the lyrics if you want to know why that is the case.

Jr. Gone Wild music may be hard to find for purchase these days, but you can try contacting Mike at his record store, you can get the Idyl Tea there for sure:
