Parkas - You Should Have Killed Us When You Had The Chance
After eight years of making rock and roll music, the Parkas called it a day. Rather than cry in their beer, the band decided to celebrate their time together by releasing their third and final full length album. One might expect a posthumous release to be a dreary, existential affair. Instead, producer Dale Morningstar (Gordon Downie, Great Lake Swimmers) captured the Parkas at their raw and spontaneous best. Combining the Clash-meets-Stones soul spirit of their last album with nods to the Replacements, and old U2, You Should Have Killed Us When You Had The Chance is the Parkas’ loudest, boldest, and best work to date. It is the sound of old friends, at the height of their musical powers, having the time of their lives.
