Alex Lifeson Day

Tue, Oct 3, 2006@10:44AM | comments

I hereby declare it (unofficially of course) Alex Lifeson day. Lerxst has 3, yes - THREE, albums being released today in Canada which he either plays on, produces or both. Alex plays on one track on Canadian industrial rock band Jakalope's second album, Born 4, which releases today. He also allowed former I Mother Earth frontman Edwin the use of his home studio for preproduction on his 3rd solo album, Better Days, in addition to playing on several tracks. And last, but not least, the soundtrack for the upcoming Trailer Park Boys movie releases today which Lerxst was heavily involved in. He compiled a Canadian "supergroup" called The Big Dirty Band and produced as well as played on their version of the 60s hit I Fought the Law for the soundtrack; and appears in the video. Alex also plays on the track Liquor and Whores as a member of Bubbles and the Shit Rockers. The only downside to all this is that these albums have only been released in Canada, and us state-siders can only get them via import.
