MICHAEL SCHATTE/Conundrum: You can’t judge this book by his cover. He looks like someone that would dispense sea chanteys but he comes right out of the box with eclectic roots rock loaded with the kind of punk rock energy you haven’t heard since the early Pogues were bidding you to mahone. With the kind of color outside the lines freedom that appears to be accorded to a Canadian cat slinging an electric guitar, it bristles with the kind of creativity that would never be found hanging around with a sippy cup. Delightfully out of the ordinary on all counts, this cat is a solid badass and so is his disc.
