Le Fly Pan Am
I checked out the Montreal band Fly Pan Am last night in the Front Page in Belfast. It's a shame that there wasn't more people there because they put on a great show. They are yet another Canadian band on Constellation records who shared members with Godspeed You Black Emperor, although Fly Pan Am edge towards the funkier, dubbier end of things. They recall GYBE in terms of the guitar effects and the industrial tape loops running in the background, but the whole rhythmic energy of the band hints at a big dub reggae/ krautrock/ PiL influence. Strangely, as I've seen GYBE/ Mt Zion a lot, this was the first time I had seen Fly Pan Am and I really enjoyed them. Seems that I have some back catalogue to seek out and wade into.
