Bottled Lightning of An All Time High
C'mon are soular powered, and using the last 50 years of rock and beyond as their template they will cut out a stencil and spraypaint their name in yr town. Their palette includes all the colors of the rainbow and the sound of volcanoes erupting, lightning strikes and stars imploding. They are a rock and roll machine, a secret shared
among friends. They are not "As Advertised on TV". They are a barn-storming, house-wrecking, foot-stomping, hound-dog howling, fucking in the backseat, 70's hard rock and punk, 80's hardcore, 60's psyche stepchild. They were a difficult birth and are troubled
in life. They are the three fingers you hold up when you tell that "read between my fingers" joke.
Bottled Lightning (of an All Time High) credits:
B.L.O.A.A.T.H. was arranged, played and produced by C’mon, winter/spring '06/'07. It was mixed by Daryl Smith (Godspeed you black @#$%^&*, Tricky Woo, Frog Eyes) and recorded (90% analog) in Toronto by Jay Sadowski, Dean Marino and Smitty at Chemical Sound, Bernard Maiezza at Aural Design and Research and Jon Drew (who also mastered it) at Signal to Noise. The cover was designed and printed by Louis Durand (currently co-starring in the cult-hit "Gillette and Guy") at Merchguy Printing. There are a couple of firsts. New drummer Dean Dallas Bentley (ex-All Systems Go, Damn 13, Monster Voodoo Machine) join Lady Katie Lynn Campbell (ex-Nashville Pussy, Famous Monsters) and Sir Ian Blurton (ex-Bionic, Change of Heart; producer of Weakerthans, Cursed) for his first full length outing. Katie sings lead for the first time (and a lot more than on previous outings) and there are guests. Anne Bourne, Owen Pallett (Final Fantasy), Julie Penner (Broken Social Scene), Mika Posen and Nick Storring lovingly supplied the strings on opening track "All Time High" and Jaysad and The Deaner manipulated a harmonium on "Nom'c".
It is available on limited edition vinyl w/ a silk-screened cover and a free download (Saved by Vinyl).
