I've seen GBS 3 or 4 times, and I think they are a drastically over-rated band... Seeing them in a pub or festival setting is much preferable to seeing them in a theatre or a place like the Ark in Ann Arbour... I can think of many Canadain bands that are much better, but didn't get the $$ support from the major lables that GBS did...

Like The Irish Decendants, Tamarack, Mad Pudding, Fear Of Drinking, The Paperboys, just to name a few...

Hell, plenty of our local bands her in Windsro are better musicians than GBS... They are a great party band, but the music is mostly fluff...
