There's also a dignified maturity to the band. They aren't writing or bragging like they're teenagers, and they aren't covering the same old classics half or more of the other bands are. Downchild is well-entrenched, and that means confidence do to what THEY do, and sing their songs. Bass player Gary Kendall came up with the number that fits perfectly, called Worn In. It's the middle-aged blues: "I got some snow up on the roof, but there's a fire deep inside/This old boy's got low mileage so come on baby, take a ride."
Kudos for the best Canadian album cover this year, too. It depicts the famous Sam The Record Man sign from Yonge St. in Toronto, now the source of controversy in the city, as it hasn't yet been restored and displayed by current owners Ryerson U., as promised. Downchild is Canadian music.
