Chronology of Edmonton Bands 24x36” screenprint ($100 CAD)
This is a "A Chronology of Edmonton Bands," being an oversized one-colour silkscreened chart showing the complex evolution of the Edmonton music scene from 1950 to 2010. It started as an exercise in community memory; local musicians were asked to report bands they'd been in, their membership, and years of activity. 157 higher profile groups were picked from that info and given a slot on one of the chart's 20 lanes. On it you'll find such semi-known Edmonton hit makers as Cadence Weapon, Barry Allen, Willy & the Walkers, SNFU, Darkroom, the Wet Secrets, the King Beez, Brewtals, and Troyka. I definitely wouldn’t call this complete, but I would call this an excellent start to understanding Edmonton’s music history. Screenprinted in an open edition, signed and dated on reverse.
