Giant Sons mention on


“Obviously, we weren’t there from the get-go, but we were able to put out the retrospective. Giant Sons were obviously so different from I Spy, but in a way very similar to me, in the sense that a local band had such an impact on me. Every second of every song was just so heavy. Of course, Beav [David Guillas, now guitar player in Propagandhi] is just so horrified by the sloppiness of those records. But for me, I couldn’t believe it that these guys were from here, and that finding out Beav was in the band was like, ‘What? That fuckin’ guy we drink with at Cousin’s is in this band? What?’ I couldn’t believe it.”
