Presented by: I.M.U. Productions
. Friday, Oct 17th I.M.U. presents LAND CD Release Party w/ special guests NO HORSES, A PALE BLUE & JOHNNY WAKEHAM AND FEATHERWOLF @ The Railway Club, 579 Dunsmuir

LAND (formerly THE FILIGREES) - This 2 man blues-driven rock and roll band focuses on tightly-crafted feel good music, strongly rooted in the spontaneity of the jam. Influenced by Neil Young, Kings of Leon and the Rolling Stones, the band's blues-rock sound has been favourably compared to the White Stripes and the Black Keys, and promises to blow the roof off with their original blend of rockin' bluegrass heart and soul. Their debut 10 song full length CD was recently recorded at Mushroom Studios and will be available soon. http://www.myspace.com/land1977

NO HORSES - Influenced by Springsteen, Neil Young, The Band, Sabbath, "Maggot Brain", Gram Parsons, Tom Petty, Fat Possum, Skynyrd, ZZ Top, Les Pauls, Telecasters, loud amps & Welch Amplification, No Horses are six people that get together and play music, drink beer, get stoned and play rock'n'roll the way it's supposed to be played. http://www.myspace.com/nohorses

A PALE BLUE was born in Alberta, and their music resonates with the imagery of the prairies: the giant skies, the hard rolling earth, and the well-worn lives of those who live between. Now based in Vancouver, their debut album "AM Gold" showcases their rugged sound while rendering the lyrical subject matter earnestly and with simplicity. A true and honest pearl of a group. http://www.myspace.com/brockallen

JOHNNY WAKEHAM AND FEATHERWOLF - Johnny Wakeham moved to Vancouver from the Prairies 5 years ago and started his residency by playing solo around town with an acoustic guitar and harmonica, soon rounding up some friends to back him up. As things came together, the band plugged in their electric guitars and got down to business with their tasty blend of barn rock. http://www.myspace.com/johnnywakeham

LAND (Blues Rock Duo)

LAND - Inspired by the possibilities born out of jam-based rock music, this 2 man blues-driven band focuses on tightly crafted music that's strongly rooted in spontaneity. Thrust forward on a wave of fuzz-laden grooves and reverb echoes, the vocals reveal stories of love, darkness, and hope, setting the tone for the band's inspired musical soundsca... more info

No Horses (Northern Rock)

Understanding exactly how No Horses came about would require more words than anybody would care to read on our Myspace page. The truth is we are a band that got together the way a band should, through friendship and a common desire to create good music. For the most part we get together over a few drinks and rock out. There is no “band leader” ... more info

A Pale Blue (Grunge/Country/Rock)

Never satisfied, and always looking ahead, A Pale Blue continues to tinker with their grungy, bummer, country rock sound. The band is taking more chances with their live show, which now ranges from a thoughtful shuffle to pounding guitar anthems. Harmonies are treated with thought and the 'no fun' lyrics of singer songwriter Brock Allen paint a d... more info
