Artist: Balls Falls, Album: The Crossing Guard, Song: Dumb Dumb Dumb

Balls Falls were a 4pc rock band from London, Ontario.  I believe some or all of the members attended Fanshawe College which likely explains the Jack Richardson connection.  The late, award winning producer; most notable for his work with the Guess Who, was an educator at that school.  He isn't listed in the credits for this album but he apparently worked with the band.  The band members were Dean Watson, Depravity Brown, Christiaan Anderson and Corwin Fox.  It appears the band had some early success as a result of a publishing contest with EMI Records for one of the songs on this recording.  This would lead to the eventual release of their one and only album, The Crossing Guard, in 2002 with Coqi Records.  The band toured the country and did some shows in Australia before disbanding.  Today, all of the members are still working in music or music production.  Guitarist, Corwin Fox, has relocated to Vancouver Island and records as a solo artist for the same label, Coqi Records.  You can follow him at  Drummer, Depravity Brown has also released music under his own name.  You can follow him at  Dumb Dumb Dumb is a standout track from this release that is really worth a listen.  You can check it out on You Tube (  The album, The Crossing Guard, is available for download on Itunes.  Thanks for reading and enjoy!
