The Bright Side
Available on CD or downloadable via iTunes.
Duotang's 2001 swan song The Bright Side brought together the dynamic tightly wound talents of Rod Slaughter and Sean Allum, two Winnipegers who, solely by themselves, managed to create a huge multi-layered racket more akin with bands many times their size. Recorded once again at Private Ear in Winnipeg with lifelong friend and creative soulmate Cam Loeppky at the helm, The Bright Side channeled the spirits of the Jam, the Who, the Kinks, and the rest of that old-school British sound that we came to expect from Winnipeg's most stylish twosome.
They fooled me - that's what The Bright Side is all about. They deconstruct their hipster stereotype, while still punching out mod rock every bit as driving and on point as they ever have. Which in its own way is pretty hip. Tricky bastards. - Pitchfork
