Do You Dream 03:46
Angel 03:35


The four key tracks of FFU 5 were recorded in multi instrumentalist Tim Bovaconti's boutique studio in the Upper Beaches area of Toronto.

There are two faces to the production.

Track 01 and 02 are recorded in Joe Meek inspired MONO.

Track 03 and 04 feature an old musical friend Micheal Rowe on lead vocals and bass guitar. Micheal and I worked together for a number of years in the late 80’s an 90’s (Toronto and Vancouver scenes) and this session was a a bit of a creative reunion tapping into our shared salt and pepper delight in the roots that nourish modern rock and roll music. In this case, the loopy rock and roll blues of "Northern Train" and the reggae rock of "Angel"
