Happy Puppy is proud to announce the re-release of a long out-of-print and rare debut EP by Canadian band Plumtree.
Plumtree were originally out of Halifax, made a big impression early on and that continues today, ten years after they broke up, thanks to starting that whole Scott Pilgrim thing.
They released one cassette EP, three albums and a handful of singles in their 7-year lifespan, making a mark on the Canadian indie scene with their smart, spunky and fun rock music. And Plumtree did rock.
I never felt that the band truly got the attention and respect they deserve: they were one of the best groups to come out of Canada and I'm extremely happy that the band have given me permission to make their debut EP from 1994 Flutterboard available on Happy Puppy for free download (for a limited time!).
These tracks are from their cassette master, and if you like what you hear, please visit their site where you can purchase their new 'best of' collection and other assorted Plumtree goodness (including Carla and Lynette's new SISTER project) or consider a donation for their generosity.

Glasgow has been a center of learning since the middle ages. It was the focus of the Scottish Enlightment in the 18th century. It has been the site of major leaps in engineering. It has been a city of fearless, forward thinking people for centuries. Glasgow's Kazoo Funk Orchestra approaches pop music with the same fearless Scottish method. They are a pop band having fun and inviting you in on the joke.
