John Samson - Lead Vocals/Guitar

John Sutton - Bass/Backing Vocals
Jason Tait - Drums, Saw, Etc.


From Winnipeg, Manitoba, they are seen by many (critics) as too high brow for the lowly masses - what with cultural, scholarly, and literary references colouring their lyrics - don't buy into it. Even if you don't know of some of the songs subjects, you can look them up and expand your mind.

  1. Great band. My only disappointment with them is that in Canada, they are taking over for the Rheostatics and Tragically Hip as the ultimate "college" band as cute kids with scruffy haircuts and backpacks everywhere ask you about them. "Have you heard of the Weakerthans?" "Yes, now leave me alone, I'm not going to your protest rally, I need to get away from here."

    If you haven't seen the video for "The Reasons" you're truly missing out, I think it can be found on Launch.com, but don't quote me on that.

  2. Big Up Winnipeg!
    (Just had to sneak that in.)

    Also just wanted to say - You are a posting machine!
    I've been meaning to comment for a while, but everytime I check your page, there is a new post to read and music to download.

    Thanks for all the work you put into this site!
