Our good friend, Del Barber, alongside his appropriately named bandmates released their much anticipated album The Puck Drops Here. The only thing better than the album art for this thing is the 14 track hockey-themed offering that pays homage to some of the greatest hockey jingles of our generation. It is hard not to be taken back to memories of early morning fog covered rural rinks with gems like Stompin’ Tom Connors’ “The Hockey Song” and our favourite – Tom Cochrane’s “Big League”. The album is a brilliant tribute to some of the greatest songs inspired by the great Canadian pastime.
“I had this idea to do hockey songs but thought it a long shot, I went to legal and my label (True North Records,) and they said, ‘brilliant idea, here is a bag of money go make it.’ I about fainted but I was tickled and that’s how The Puck Drops Here came to be”.
