machine green

well happy st. patty's day. i think i've found that works somewhat. the Super Friendz where from halifax, nova scotia, canada when it was at a peak for local music with bands like Sloan, Eric's Trip and Thrush Hermit sharing stages. their infectious powerpop finally made it's way to the u.s. when a compilation was released here in 1997. unfortunately the group disbanded that year. the trio consisting of matt murphy, charles austin, and drew yamada would each write and sing their own songs and so it wasn't too much of a surprise when they were all ready to pursue something all theirs. one of the more notable post-Super Friendz contributions would be murphy's involvement in the early Neko Case records, posing as one of her backing band Boyfriends. their song "Machine Green" was always one of my favorite pop tunes, recounting three great Greens of the past.
