“The Edmonton Punk Scene, part II”

Last class, we did some digging around the history of the Edmonton punk scene, and planned out our first punk homework assignment: to look around the current local community and see what we could find.

So, this time around, come to class with a little info on an Edmonton band and tell us a little about ’em. Playing a song means your mark will be moved up from an A+ to an A++. Try and find a band that fits the punk “attitude” we’ve been discussing. Afterwards, we’ll compile a list of all the bands and get it out there to people using this worldwide web thing that seems to really be catching on.

Also, we’ll have punk stalwart Jim Nowhere join the class to talk about his participation in the local scene!

Readings: TBD

Playlist: TBD, but it’s going to be AWESOME.

The Many Sides to Nowhere: Blurring the lines between music and art


Jim Nowhere is a punk rocker. If you were in a debate club, you’d have an easier time convincing someone you didn’t want to be a lawyer or a politician than poking holes in this fact. Heck, if you were a philosopher, even you would have a lot of trouble refuting how true this is.

Yep, he’s a punk. He’s got a punk rock attitude. He’s got a punk rock band. He’s even got a punk rock name. Even though you can call him a punk, you could also call him an artist, and you could call him a folk singer.

What you couldn’t call him is somebody that likes fitting into neat little categories.

Labels? Who needs ’em?
