The Age Of Electric

Recommended Posts

Pretty good nineties band, the four members went onto be successful on their own too. Todd Kerns went to Static In Stereo before starting his own solo career and producing music. Ryan Dahle was already in Limblifter before the AOE disbanded but also had Alarmbell for awhile as well as producing for various bands. John Kerns was also in Static In Stereo before going onto Robin Black and The Intergalatic Rock Stars. Kurt Dahle was in Limblifter for awhile, is still in The New Pornographers, he plays for Todd Fancey (ex-Limblifter/The New Pornographers) solo project Fancey sometimes too, as well as produces music.

I wish "Remote Control" had remained an Limblifter song though... It's a good song though.

I love AOE. Not a fan of Limblifter.

Oh yes, I remember my introduction to Age of Electric from good old Big Shiny Tunes 2. Oh the good old days...

 

I really liked Todd's work on Jumbo Jet Headache. Is there any way to get ahold of his solo material?

Age Of Electric is so sickeningly '90s that it's awesome. They're one of those bands that could just as easily be a parody of their decade and genre. Which would be a bad thing if the '90s didn't rule.

Man I used to be super obsessed with AOE, they were sooo good. It sucks that they broke up, but I enjoy Limblifter as well, havent really listened to much of the other stuff. Kurt looked best in the Ugly vid, thats crazy-cool that john is in Robin Black.

Well it's sold in stores in Canada, but if you're in another country than I don't know...

I was thinking more along the lines of downloading the album or at least one song, get a feel for his solo sound.

 

But I checked a few cd shops here in BC and I didn't find anything. Guess I'm not looking hard enough.

i couldnt sit through it. maybe because i heard it first now instead of the 90s? it had a few good songs on it, but i couldn't differentiate between them at all.

ok. although it's not really accessability im having problems with, because their songs are fairly straightforward. it's more along the lines of the fact that i can't really set them apart from any other band from that era. so whatever album has the best songwriting, instrumentation and all that jazz, is what i'm looking for...

todd's voice sets them apart because it drips sex and rockstar

Matt, not quite AOE but do you know what happened to the Sons of Freedom? Another excellent Canadian band that vanished.
