Thanks for reading the Revolution Music Canada news blog. We took a couple of weeks off during the Christmas season so there hasn’t been a lot of updates in December. The site has had its share of ups and downs this year but we are committed to bringing you the best in Canadian music for 2012 and beyond. By the way, those two weeks that we took off weren’t exactly leisure time. A lot of painting, working, moving, driving, shopping, drinking and smoking was done during that time. We also renovated the basement of our place including the Revolution Music Studio room which now has a bar, a new couch, and quite a bit more organization.
For some background on the Revolution Music website, the domain started on July 18, 2001 from the Revolution Music Studio (which was started about 15 years ago) in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada. The site was originally intended to distribute mp3’s recorded by Dr. Destrukto and Randy Young. The site expanded to include other artists, bands and musicians from the Thunder Bay area during the early-mid 2000s. With the creation of Baycore.net by Destrukto in 2006 along with the Revolution Music Radio Show on CILU in the same year, the Revolution Music website basically ceased to exist.
Destrukto revived the site in late 2010/early 2011 with a new focus on music news about (primarily) independent Canadian music. The site was revived due to an apparent lack of a comprehensive news site on the Canadian music scene. Although there are fragmented scene websites for most cities in Canada, there isn’t a regularly updated site that continuously publishes Canadian music news from the club and touring scenes.
Although the site has had its share of up and downs in the past decade, and even in the past year, we are all looking forward to making 2012 a great year for Revolution Music. We intend to focus 100% on independent Canadian music and we also intend to have some righteous new features including:
- More interviews
- More mp3 downloads
- More video updates
So from Destrukto here at Revolution Music in Thunter Bay, have a safe and happy holiday season and I hope you stick around in 2012. Support Canadian Music.Written by Destrukto. Original content here: Canadian Music News
