we want the death of rock 'n' roll

My #2 album of 2003, right behind New Porn's Electric Version, was Shine A Light, the Sub Pop debut by Guelph, Ontario's The Constantines. This disc was a splurge purchase I made @ the Fetus after reading a review of it on Pitchfork, and boy, it was a good one. It took a few listens for me to penetrate its dense post-punk, but the more I listened to it - the more I listened to it, the more I listened to it, etc. Really great stuff - I'm still shocked that it failed to make Pitchfork's year-end top 50.

MP3 The Constantines - "Arizona" from 2001's self-titled LP
MP3 The Constantines - "Young Lions" from Shine A Light
MP3 The Constantines - "Nighttime/Anytime (It's Alright)" the 1st single from Shine A Light

BTW: A few additional downloads can be found @ their official site.

I managed to catch The Constantines @ the Triple Rock 10/1/03 (opening for the highly-overated IMO Weakerthans), and I can testify that they are definitely worth seeing. I'm still baffled as to how frontman Bry Webb manages to scratch out his best Springsteen impersonation "night after night." Here are some upcoming tourdates - catch 'em if you can:
