Too many memories attached to too many of their songs – both amazingly great and painfully sad – for me not to introduce you to them. Over the years those close to me have had certain Atmosphere songs burned into their memories thanks to my playing of their songs incessantly.
The lead singer, Slug, is a rock-star. Their success can be attributed to a number of things – relentless touring, development of a fanatical fan base, being unbelievably authentic, and writing lyrics that rattle around your head long after the music stops playing.
I saw them perform about 4 years ago in a small basement club in Toronto. Unreal. It was one of those concert experiences that ruin future concerts because they just can’t measure up.
Their EP released in 2002 is one of my favourite albums of all time. It is a definite must have for anyone who enjoys music. Trust me on this – I put all of the little credibility that I have on the line with this recommendation.
There are a lot of great songs on the album. “The Woman With The Tattooed Hands” is incredible but this one may be my favourite song of all time. Give it a listen and check out the album.
