An April March - Adiago (Promo)
A beautiful, but largely unknown Toronto outfit which released 2 amazing discs in the early 90's. Now defunct, they have managed to capture some attention with their mesmerising sound which flutters from The Cocteau Twins to Curve, with other brilliant shoegazer bits thrown in the mix for good measure. An April March did manage to get onto the CFNY 'New Music Search' CD, which featured new artists from the Toronto area, be it a battle of the bands type of thing. This did give them some exposure in the Toronto area, but not enough worldwide. I do believe they would have caught on a little more given their sound at the time, and given the craze that was affluent in the UK and Europe with the likes of MBV and Ride ect. This disc is VERY scarce, and is limited to ONLY 600. If you found one, good for you, if not, well.. good luck! Here's a chance to hear something you may not have heard if you own one of their releases, and a few sparkling gems in the likes of 'This is...' and 'We Were Never Attached (Detached Mix)'. If you like these guys, please source out more and buy it, god knows they deserve some resurgence!
