Description

CERTAINLY MAX Webster was no ordinary band. The fact that their name was an entirely fictional non de plume was just part of the conundrum. An electric and eccentric four piece, based in Toronto, and led by the ever entertaining Kim Mitchell, MW maximised their curious non conventional appeal by crafting melodic progressive rock with a nod to the left-of-centre approach pioneered by King Crimson, Frank Zappa, Captain Beefheart and Genesis. It was a heady mixture for sure but one that paid long lasting dividends. Discovered and signed to Rush’s management company (SRO), the band’s debut album, originally issued in 1976 and helmed by Rush producer Terry Brown, was funded and issued by Taurus, SRO’s in house production company. The album is a sublime and incredibly captivating work, with as many twists and turns as quirky hooks and riffs can possibly allow. Standout tracks include ‘Hangover’, ‘Here Among The Cats’, ‘Only Your Nose Knows’, and the truly baffling yet utterly compelling ‘Toronto Tontos’. A truly astounding work” 24-bit remastering from original source tapes, 3,500 word essay about the making of the album with Kim Mitchell and previously unpublished photos spread out over a 16 page full colour booklet.
