From the Vault: Out Of The Fog – The Halifax Underground 1986

By Bryce

A wonderfully rare record appeared in MCR (that’s our live broadcasting studio for those of you who aren’t up on the CKUT lingo) a few days ago, and the station’s been buzzing about it ever since! This piece of Canadian music history compiles songs from a multitude of Halifax bands approaching their fourth decade. The album quickly moves from reverb-drenched pop to heavy, grungy goodness and beyond. Though the only thing tying these artists together is their collective scene, you can really HEAR it. A beautiful picture in time. Big thanks to Sarah Fahie, host of Beyond the Horizon, for digging this gem out of the CKUT library.

Good luck finding yourself a copy! Here’s a little write-up on the album if you want to dive deeper:
