Publishing quality Canadian music writing.
Uncovered tells the story of The Watchmen, a Canadian band that traveled thousands of kilometres of barren Prairie highway without flair or pretense. Known for their dedication to their craft and their fans, The Watchmen were a working-class rock band that rose to prominence at a time when rock music still mattered. Like many of their contemporaries, The Watchmen ultimately struggled against a shifting musical climate but, in doing so, inspired countless other acts while forging a hard, driving rock sound that many Canadians still hold dear to their hearts. The life of a touring rock band is an unforgiving one. In Uncovered, Vanessa Azzoli charts the evolution of a band that represents the Canadian spirit. There is dirt under their fingernails and there is a will to succeed. Uncovered is the story of not only a band, but a special time in Canadian rock: when a band was only as good as their last show and there was always another gig on the horizon.
Foreword by Randy Bachman.
Started in early 2013 by two childhood friends, Joshua Kloke and Adam Kesek, Eternal Cavalier Press is an independent publishing house dedicated to quality Canadian music writing.
With an emphasis on aesthetics and stories from both sides of the stage, Eternal Cavalier Press gives a voice to musicians and fans that have long needed one. Based in Toronto, ECP publishes books exclusively by Canadian authors. Taking cues from artist-focused record labels that began as a means to distribute unknown bands including Arts & Crafts, You’ve Changed, Mammoth Cave and Castleface, Eternal Cavalier Press was created with music-loving readers in mind.
