Van Gogh Can’t Listen to Gogh Van Go – It’s a Shame …!

Vincent Van Gogh cut off his ear. Rumor has it – the landlady took away all his Gogh Van Go songs and he was awfully depressed.

Who wouldn’t be?

Following a seventeen year hiatus ( complete with a parenting diploma), the alt -Pop duo are back. They have also brought along the original members to play on June 26th at Club Soda in Montreal.

How cool is that?

Kim Mitchell – Hangin’ Out; Part Two

On May 9th at Club Soda Kim Mitchell is bringing history to the stage.

Long before many Canadian artists were introducing a certain ‘sense of ‘Canadian – isms’ to the world; Mitchell had already been there – done that! Wearing thrift store clothes and injecting humor through music -one of Mitchell’s fortes. No wonder The Barenaked Ladies’ Ed Robertson was such a fan …

Please listen as Kim talks about many things including his buddy doing something …um … ‘not so nice’ to Bob Dylan.

Kim …?

“Tonight was a night for intensity as the songs leapt out of their studio confines and found increased energy on stage, the place where Mitchell has always made his mark. His band was hot and precise. He was cool and focused. And by the end of the night, the class had heard their lessons, had their brains expanded, and quite possibly, their minds blown.”  MUSICEXPESSS.CA (April 2013)

 

“I’m just doing my Rock N Roll duty, creating a buzz, buzz, buzz, some say I’m in it for the money, but I’m in it for the love, love, love!” – KIM MITCHELL

 

Canadian rock icon Kim Mitchell sings those lines on his personal mission statement, “Rock N Roll Duty” and he’s still doing exactly that, energy and enthusiasm intact.

For Mitchell, that’s what it’s all about, not the money, the fame or the trophy case.  Singer-songwriter and guitarist, Kim Mitchell, has achieved gold and multiplatinum sales status over a long and storied career, starting early on as leader of the musically eclectic Max Webster, a band who in the late 70’s defined “alternative” and “independent” long before the words became clichés.

Mitchell has sold over 1.5 million recordings and toured regularly over a lengthy solo career that remains creatively vibrant to this day.  Of note, 2014 marks the 30th anniversary of “Akimbo Alogo” (Alert Records), Kim’s first full length solo recording post Max Webster, a record which introduced us to Kim’s big, bold and endemic guitar driven  sounds in songs like  “Go For Soda” and  the anthemic “All We Are”.

Along the way he won three Juno Awards for “Most Promising Male Vocalist of the Year”, “Album of the Year” and “Male Vocalist of the Year”. In the late 70’s and through all of the 80’s Kim toured the largest arenas in the country and today continues to perform nationally.  He is a gifted and peer-respected guitar player as well as an acclaimed songwriter, having penned (in partnership with Pye Dubois) and recorded other classic hits like “Rock N Roll Duty”, “Patio Lanterns”, “I am a Wild Party”, “Easy To Tame”, to name just a few – all songs that have become part of the Canadian musical landscape.

Add several new songs from his most recent solo recording “Ain’t Life Amazing” (including the national rock radio hit of the title track), and audiences are thrilled to find that participating in a Kim Mitchell concert is like being at the live recording of a greatest hits box set which includes his solo hits and often  Max Webster gems like “Diamonds Diamonds”, “Oh War”, and “Battlescar”, a hard rock anthem as poignant  today as it was three decades ago when it was recorded with his friends Alex, Geddy and Neil of RUSH.

A decade ago, while maintaining a busy touring schedule, Mitchell was invited to join the on-air staff at the station Q107 in Toronto, giving Kim his first ever day-job and one that he has excelled at. During his tenure as host of their afternoon drive show, he has become one of the most popular DJs in Toronto, and the country. Mitchell has the respect of peers, fans, and industry types alike. Just what does he consider his greatest achievement? “Shoot, that’s easy,” says Kim, “it’s in the couple of hours the band is onstage, being able to take people to a special place through our performance and music. When that happens, I’ve accomplished what I set out to do.” Legions of Canadian fans agree!
