Name that band:


Is it Kilowatt?

We’re not certain but this promo shot from the early ‘80s features Dallcorte Records’ Tim Trombley bookended by Bernie “the attorney” and Marty Onrot whooping it up with Q107’s Gary Slaight. Canadian indie imprint Dallcorte was short-lived but had a couple of big hits with (licensed) Elkie Brooks and The Drivers - a Brit-pop band whose debut album was produced by Terry Brown featuring singer Nick Van Eede who went on to glory with (I Just) Died In Your Arms Tonight (also produced by Brown).

For those too young to remember, Kilowatt included Guess Who alumni Bill Wallace and Greg Leskiw and the group's debut album was produced by Domenic Troiano.

Tanya Tagaq Plays a Pivotal Role in 'True Detective' Season Finale

The Inuk artist provides vocals for the HBO series' soundtrack, and her song "Submerged" scores a pivotal moment in the season finale, in which she appears as an actress.

The new season of True Detective wrapped up this weekend, and timed with the tense final episode, HBO also released the show's gripping soundtrack. Inuk artist Tanya Tagaq, one of the most celebrated contemporary musicians in Canada, contributed to seven songs on the soundtrack as well as making appearances in the show herself.

Subtitled Night Country, the fourth season of the HBO detective show takes place in the fictional town of Ennis, Alaska. It stars Jodie Foster and Kali Reis as Liz Danvers and Evangeline Navarro, two police officers trying to figure out how the recent bizarre deaths of six scientists are linked to the murder of Iñupiaq activist Annie Kowtok. Through its mystery framing, the show explores themes like colonial violence, environmental destruction, and missing and murdered Indigenous women.
