The band also tipped their hats to some music of the past by covering Barry McGuire's hit, Eve Of Destruction (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xt5IEGYaBds) as well as The Drifters classic, Save The Last Dance For Me (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KLP2UoPiqj8&feature=related). Much like punk itself, the band's career was hardly predictable or stable. The band signed with Capital Records during the late eighties but have gone through numerous line up and label changes over the last 35 years. To their credit (or perhaps to Mickey's), they have continued to release some great music. Nobodys Hero's was their last studio album of new material which was released in 2000. This is a really good album with some strong tunes like Hockeynite and this beauty, Dickwart. The band played shows in Europe as well as the U.S. in support of this release. The Forgotten Rebels are arguably one of the finest punk outfits to ever record in Canada and they are responsible for building the foundation of the genre here at home. Mickey's production work with bands like The Wet Spots (see blog 5/13/11) as well as his overall support for younger bands such as The Problem Children (see blog 11/24/11), helped build a scene that still exists today. Their music is timeless as well and hopefully we'll see some more re-issued material that will keep their legacy alive for a great many more years. The band today includes Mickey along with Jeffrey Campbell, Dan Cassale and former Sven Gali (see blog 10/31/10) bassist, Shawn Maher. They have 13 releases to date and have shared stages with bands like The Clash, Iggy Pop as well as The Ramones. You can keep tabs on them at http://www.forgottenrebels.com/. You can hear a sample of the song, Dickwart, as well as purchase the album, Nobodys Hero's, on Itunes. Thanks for reading and enjoy!
