LETDOWNS.CA  hacking around in the basement at CRASH LANDING! 

WHO ARE the LETDOWNS.CA ?

image3

  • the LETDOWNS.CA have honed their punk rock’n roll chops in the basements and dive bars in their hometown of  the HAMMER.(Hamilton for the uninitiated!)


  • Flickblade fast and just and lethal, their sonic chaos is parsed into life vignettes, clocking in at around  three minutes a pop.


  • Hookers, teen brides, fall-downs and screw ups… they all receive star billing in the Canuck rock narrative, and  their delightful songs are all culled from the armpit of Canada’s zany cast of  characters. 


  • These musical gems shimmer like diamonds in among the slag heaps.


  • the LETDOWNS.CA are a collection of pure HAMILTONIA. 
  • Forged in steel company blast furnaces, battle tested in downtown’s gritty core and unrepentantly proud of their underdog status, the LETDOWNS.CA convey the STEELTOWN ethos in rapid-fire bursts of staccato-guitar-sing-along noise.

WHAT LETDOWNS.CA are about

The songs are guttural and thoughtful. The music is sonic and soothing    (naaah, I lie-- NOT soothing!)


Every song tells a story- from the hooker on Barton to riding the # 5 Bus. 


Growing up, screwing up, staying true- that is kinda where the LETDOWNS.CA  are at.
