Rocket Science "Foolscap"

click to orderThe long awaited debut album from Rocket Science, Foolscap, was released October 9th, from Sonic Unyon Records. Foolscap was co-produced and recorded by Geddy Lee in his home studio, and includes his nephew Rob Higgins on bass and vocals.

"It is rock, rock with a kind of technical edge to it. I have a home studio and we have been working here and gone into the smaller studios around town to do some sessions now and again. It has been fun for me and I think fun for them as well." - Geddy Lee, JAM! Showbiz, Jan. 18, 2000

Alex Lifeson Produces Lifer

click to orderProduced by Alex Lifeson, the eponymous second album by the band Lifer was released August 14th. An edited version (minus explicit lyrics) is also available. Lifer (formerly 'Driver'; formerly 'Strangers With Candy') landed a six-album record deal with Universal/Republic Records after winning first-place in February 2001's MTV Ultimate Cover Band Contest.

Regarding their choice of producer, guitarist Aaron Fincke said, "We wanted a player, rather than just a standard producer," and said that the band expects to "sell a couple hundred thousand more copies" of their album because of Lifeson's reputation as a musician and performer. "We can only do so much with our songs, but he helped to clean up all of them." - The Crusader Online (Susquehanna University Newspaper), November 17, 2000.
