Was lucky enough to see LWL's 2 times this year, what a year it's been for Canada's best punk band..

LWL is a good band, but glossing them Canada's best punk band is insulting to bands like Propaghandi...
Yeah, I still like Propaghandi... I just like LWL's better these days, their out there giving it their all and touring their asses off which I respect... no insults intended.

Same. They put on a great show and it's awesome they never forgot western Canada despite the fact they were able to grab tours in the US and Europe this year. I truly believe they are one of the only bands keeping the punk scene alive in Canada, right alongside the Flatliners. I love Propagandhi, we're both Winnipeggers, but they're not as active anymore. It's nice to see some activity again especially when we don't get much. Most American bands ignore us all the time so it's not like we can rely on them.
Oh so very true my friend. I along side you are from Western Canada (Calgary) and it is a sad state of affairs these days when it comes to touring American bands comin through our way. We are not piss ant towns, we have a million people... Bands like Rise Against have seen the progress of coming through and building a fan base where the shows get bigger and bigger over time. Iam starting to see that with LWL's now.. I hate to say it about a band I love but The Swellers are a band that just dosent get it at all. Maybe its their label who tells them to never tour any part of Canada other than one offs in Ontario and Quebec, maybe its them. They will always stay the same as long as they just keep going to the same towns over and over again.
