Clearly the steaming seed of Mark Sultan has been spread far and wide across the PQ, as Wild Raccoon is another Quebecois one-man band with which the world must contend. More poppy than bluesy, Mr. Raton Sauvage is not above jamming with himself, which can occasionally lead to odd mental glimpses of the Bare Wires trying to play the fast part in “Iron Man” and other such exercises. Mr. Sauvage also has a charming French Canadian accent, best enjoyed in his spoken lines such as “they’re taking all the rocks, ‘cause we act like fucking cocks.” If I told you that this was the best cassette I’ve heard all year, I would not be lying. BEST SONG: “Next Summer” BEST SONG TITLE: “Pfuck Fuck the Bankers” FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: Includes a cover of “True Love Will Find You in the End” by Daniel Johnston.
