The Greatest Story Ever Told: Felix Hagan

Posted April 2, 2017, 3:15 p.m.
The Greatest Story Ever Told

Felix Hagan & the Family play grandiose pop songs tinged with hints of musical theatre, classic rock, and jazz. Hagan's shows have been described as a whirlwind of show-off nonsense (in a good way!) with Hagan playing ringleader to a seven-piece backing band of highly theatrical, immaculately dressed, misfits. The group has released two EPs to date and since their formation in 2013 have traveled across the UK winning over fans and critics. They play shows with their tongues firmly planted in their cheeks and the hands either in the air or around someone’s hips. Recently Felix Hagan completed a tour with Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls, playing keys while Sleeping Souls’ member Matt Nasir was busy having ...

The Greatest Story Ever Told

Leatherface never achieved the success they deserved. In the late '80s and early '90s, the UK punk band created a sound - marked by gravely vocals, killer riffs, and an underlining pop sensibility - that earned them a cult following in Britain. While the band never broke North America, they were a huge influence on groups like Hot Water Music and Dillinger Four, and whether it’s acknowledged or not their impact on the punk scene can still be felt today. One of the bands that Leatherface impacted was Montreal’s The Sainte Catherines. Singer Hugo Mudie would frequently reference the group ...
