Pink Wine’s snotty, irreverent power-pop/garage rock anthems are the perfect soundtrack for the disenfranchised millennials stalking the streets, drinking in parks and dingy bars. They don’t put on airs, they’re not trying to change the status quo through punk rock, it’s as though they know that we’re all doomed anyway so why don’t we just have a big old party to celebrate the end of the world as we know it.
Fronted by the charismatic, and prolific, Joel French; Pink Wine is filled out by Liam Doyle, Joey P on Bass, and James Michael McKeever on drums. This energetic and seemingly undeterrable four piece is closely linked to the influx of the Toronto punk/garage scene that is thriving in the city, and all over Canada. Their 12-inch came out on Hosehead and P. Trash (Germany) records last year and their members also run with the likes of Sam Coffey & The Iron Lungs, Ketamines (Session here), Mean Tikes and the DIY scene in Toronto. Joel French recently joined with some other folks on a hefty promotions venture, People Put Out Productions. They’ve thrown dozens and dozens of shows since their inception in February of 2014.
The band is currently in the studio working on some new material for some splits with Tough Age (Session here) and First Base (who were in the studio recently) so keep your eyes peeled, we’ll be here eagerly anticipating them.
