Top 5 bands....hmmm.....
Propagandhi - progressive punk/thrash-y stuff from Winnipeg
Medications - used to be Faraquet, DC based three piece rock
Giraffes? Giraffes! - 2 piece instrumental rock, VERY technically proficient
The Weakerthans - folk rock from Winnipeg
Sean Pinchin - blues/folk from Mississauga, this guy KILLS at guitar. Seriously, look this dude up.
Holy shit, Propagandhi are still going? Used to listen to them a lot back in't olden days, will have to look up their newer stuff
