About Me


At my day job I teach in the Political Science Department at York University and research Canadian and comparative democratization processes.  Here I ruminate about poprock, both past and present.  In the event you too are interested in both poprock and the minutiae of voting systems, Canadian politics, democratization, and working class identity, you can view my faculty webpage here and a complete list of my publications here.

So, why am I writing a music blog?  Well mostly to alert other poprock fans too busy to comb the internet about where to find new (or new to me) music.
