The brother men of Tonstartssbandht (Andy and Edwin) have appeared on the airwaves of CKUT in many forms over the last couple years, both appearing and hosting a variety of programs including Montreal Sessions, New Shit, If You Got Ears, and a very special episode of Chaud Pour Le Mont-Stone where their dad did a Kermit the frog impression. They stopped by the station on a fine September afternoon during the Pop Montreal festival to play some songs. The result was a 30 minute extended psychedelic way-out jam, which flew the CKUT studio to another plane of musical reality.
For your convenience we have separated the session into two segments although you should note they are continuous and should be taken together. The first track "Hymn Our Garden" originated on the Russian tour tape, Hymn, from earlier this year. After a steady build of guitar fuzz the beat kicks in and we have entered "Late Fall Roll," a track from Edwin's solo project Eola.
Tonstartss-friend Spencer Gilley was in the studio filming the whole thing, his masterpiece video adds a whole other dimension to the experience.
