Update January 2018

It's been a quiet winter so far but MOHAIR SWEETS is headed back to the studio to do a promo CD for radio/press that includes a number of the more straight forward things from the EP's with a special bonus recording of Detroit C&W legend Skeets McDonald. Has MOHAIR SWEETS gone country? Uh, no. More of a continuation of a love of Detroit based music and fairly obscure artists and their music that can fit into how we do things around here.

Watch this space for more news on the sessions for another new EP of all original material that I hope to have ready for early summer.

Later in the year I also hope to announce a UK date that would satisfy a long held dream of mine.
More on that later.

I've also been working on getting some archive zine material and the new mohairsweets.ca website up to speed.
My pal Jason G Eastwood is helping out there. Please visit his websites and have a listen to his fabulous new CD!

Stay warm kids.

And then I found this!


So I've been going through some of the older Mohair Sweets files to see what I can configure for the new website and I came across this...





Ha! Those were the days!

Couple things been up of late...

A few weeks ago we played the Winnipeg Bar B Q Blues Festival. Fourth time out for us. Some minor frustrations with the amp but this video catches Jonesy rippin' it up with the Coronet guitar he built: BAR B Q BLUES/BLACK LEATHER JACKET  Not sure why this seems to be the only tune people shoot...

FINALLY got around to grabbing a domain after many years of procrastinating. It'll all be here at some point -- including some old Mohair Sweets zine stuff: MOHAIR SWEETS
Be patient though, coz it's been a long time since I worked with html and the like.

The new TRIBUTE TO RONNIE LANE EP! OUT NOW!

Fresh off the press! The brand new MOHAIR SWEETS, TRIBUTE TO RONNIE LANE EP!

Five tracks of Ronnie Lane and Ronnie covered material done up respectfully and right as a tribute to the late great Ronnie Lane.

Sadly it is only available locally or by making contact here, or most probably in the next few days, through McNally Robinson in Winnipeg. We'll let you know once that happens though so hold tight.


Don't forget our other new EP though, DREAM FILLED NIGHTS which has only seen very minimal distribution here and is a blend of pub rockin' spaced out strangeness with guest appearances by Eddie Baranek (Sights/Scrappers), Tav Falco (Panther Burns) and Jody Harris (Raybeats/Contortions)!
