I first discovered Spookey while listening to tracks on a CMJ sampler (remember those?) and "These Days Are Old" came on. Blown away by that single track that sounded like Andy Partridge (XTC) from Mars, I bought his first album and remained a fan ever since.
He has worked constantly producing his own music, as well as others and a few years ago created a series of video shorts for AUXTV called Dizzy Playground, that somehow managed to get Feist, Melissa Auf der Maur and John McEntire (of The Sea and Cake/Tortoise) involved.
Recently, Spookey's taken almost all of his catalog and put up at Bandcamp for free download (for a limited time!)
It might be a little daunting to tackle all the great music there, so with his permission, I've put together this collection of my fave Spookey tracks, which might help introduce you to one of Canada's most original artists.
