Take four twenty year old suckas, give them all degrees in the field of Rock 'n' Roll and buy them some instruments. Throw in some old indie-rock records and a little bit of undeniable country influence and you'll wind up relatively close to Mississauga, Ontario's The Meligrove Band. Their debut indie cassette, "EP" is now completely sold out after countless successful shows, including recent stints in with Halifax's Thrush Hermit, California's Pansy Division and The Flashing Lights. The band's debut CD, Stars & Guitars, will be out on Ductape Records later this year. Sharp pop sensibility, great contrasting p.o.v. vocals from Jay and Darcy, sweet-ass country licks, and enough pop-culture references to make Pepsi jealous. Get it yet?

>>>>>>What the people have been saying about THE MELIGROVE BAND...
"Armed with energy, optimism and a good sense of humour, the Meligrove Band may very well have the chance of becoming "that big, local band" -Christine Tsao, PopCan Magazine
"The Meligrove Band make rock to knock your socks up the block!" -Denise Wong, Kung Fu 'zine
"This cassette-only release is the Mississauga foursome's indie debut, featuring eight digitally-recorded songs that will get your toes wigglin'. A refreshing break from bands whose songs all sound the same, EP can be picked up at the band's shows or through the mail for a mere $5. " -The Toronto Star, on the band's debut cassette "EP".
