The CBC Radio 3 Sessions

On April 4th 2008, Dave Gowans, Lasse Lutick, Morgan McDonald and Dan Gaucher will be celebrating 10 years of playing music together. Not content to rest on their laurels, The Buttless Chaps are as sharp and spry as ever; together with Mint Records they will be releasing their (and our) first digital-only release, titled CBC Radio 3 Sessions.

The CBC Radio 3 Sessions will be available on April 1st, exclusively through iTunes and Zunior.com. It features old friends, Jesse Zubot (Fond of Tigers, Zubot and Dawson) on violin, and Peggy Lee on cello. The release includes a myriad of the Chaps’ favourite songs; "Fresh Horses”, “Migratory Birds” and a cover of the Echo and the Bunnymen classic, “The Killing Moon,” to name a few. Since their formation in 1998, the Chaps have toured the Canadian and US wilderness extensively and performed with artists such as The Rheostatics, The Handsome Family and Stars. Their brooding jangly orchestral folk music will make you come to the realization that life, although pointless, is also wonderful.
