Whip cream, whips and chains, plum sauce. We all have our vices, but for Hey Rosetta! they are a tad strange, especially when they head on tour.

"Attaching images to music, I kind of get off on that," admits Hey Rosetta! frontman Tim Baker. "I think it's really awesome."

It could be the many months of travelling that gets to a guy's head, making him come up with crazy thoughts. With all different sights to see, parties to attend and lots of music, touring doesn't seem too bad, except for the rigorous schedule.

  Canadian band stands up for their rightsPDF files may take a moment to load

Have you ever wondered what Canadian artists think about being Canadian? This doesn't refer to the "I am Canadian" slogan, beer ads or July 1 celebrations of sovereignty.

You only have to see Kris Demeanor perform one song live before you label him a spazz. Over the past decade, the Calgary born and raised singer/songwriter/performance artist has gained a legion of devoted weirdoes and nuts who take joy in seeing him flop around on stage like he just got tazed.

"I'm pretty spazzy," he says. "I'm starting to worry a little about my health. I worry about having a stroke. Sometimes my heart just beats like a rabbit and I can't stop hopping around."

  Montreal group sets themselves apartPDF files may take a moment to load

Canada gets a hard rap. The United States gets the credit for having more interesting movies, heroes and presidential debates.

Ten years on and a million heartbreaks later, Death Cab for Cutie is returning to Calgary and they're wiser for the wear. Their record Narrow Stairs has been a driving force musically and they've managed to retain their hard-won reputation as one of indie rock's most respected bands. Though they've been down a long musical road, bassist Nick Harmer says there is still a lot to be excited about.

  Comeback Kid takes an unconventional yet hardcore approachPDF files may take a moment to load

If one was to compare music to high school and bands to students then Comeback Kid is the hyperactive overachiever that isn't quite made from the same material as everyone else. The band takes an unconventional approach to hardcore music and has toured worldwide, garnering international attention and with signs of slowing down any time soon. In the past two years alone, Comeback Kid has been to almost every continent, touring Canada, the US, Australia, Southeast Asia, Japan, Europe, New Zealand, Iceland and numerous other areas.
