Don't know if other babblers knew him, but Banks was a brilliant brilliant brilliant guy. Should be a fun night.

Upcoming is the First Anniversary Steve Banks Benefit Thursday, January 25 at
Toronto's Holy Joe's (651 Queen Street West - upstairs from Reverb). Admission by donation.

Headlining are the reunited Trans Love Airways, along with John Borra, William New, Brian Ruryk, Crocky Teasdale, Jose Contreras, Scotty (of the Futz), ZenExistentialist Puppet Theatre, Screaming Sam Ferrara, Geoff Marshall (from Antimatter),
By Divine Right and Windeyer.

Three albums - Trans Love Airways' 'Beautiful Garage' and 'Medium Kool', as well as the Steve Banks compilation, 'Unlimited Edition' - are now available at iTunes and a number
of other online music stores.

There are also four songs from the charity CD 'Steve Banks - Limited Edition' in the free download section on this site, and additional pieces that were conceived as soundtracks. You can purchase the CD at the Babel, She Said Boom and Zoinks record stores in Toronto. You can make a further donation to the Steve Banks Memorial Fund by

Wow - I used to be a big fan of Brian Ruryk. In fact, Brian Ruryk actually personally delivered a couple of tape recordings I had bought from him during a mail strike. I remember going to Screaming Sam concerts, and sitting for a beer with him afterwards. Didn't know Mr. Banks, but if musicians like these guys were friends, he must have been some creative guy.
