Fan Bloody Tastic. OK so that grabbed your attention. Now I can begin. The Dudes are one of those bands that are surely destined for big things. This Canadian band has all those traits that transfer over from, Canadian niche, to global superstars. I have to be careful when making those kinds of statements, as I don’t mean this as an attack, as there is a plethora of amazing Canadian bands. It’s just that some Canadian bands don’t seem to be able to make that transition, for whatever reason.

I first came across the Dudes, as I so often do with Canadian bands, via the CBC Radio 3 podcast, a weekly podcast that highlights some of the most amazing Canadian bands. Within seconds of hearing their track, I was gobsmacked. There was an intensity and drive that just radiated. The vocals are also very distinctive, but also had a hint of uniqueness to them, that I always find very refreshing.

This 13 track album opens with “They’re A Comin‘ “, which provides a great introduction to their sound. Actually a great introduction is probably a bit of an understatement, because this is one of those album, that genuinely gets me truly excited, there is just something that surges like pure electricity through it.

I could wax lyrical for a month and a day, but your eyes would probably glaze over so I’ll try to pick out my favorite tracks on the album. This is easier said than done, but if you were to twist my arm, I would have no doubt including “They’re A Comin‘”, “Do the Right Thing”, “Dropkick Queen of the Weekend” and who am I kidding, picking great songs on this albums, gives me a huge guilt trip for the songs that I miss.

Conclusion : Depart your dwelling forth with and go to your record store to pick up a copy. Or if you’re a lazy git like me, head on over to your computer and order a CD or the album in digital format via iTunes.
