Canadian Doom/Punk/Psychedelic band Slowpoke premiere the first single – “Sid The Cat” from their debut self-titled album via Doomed & Stoned.
Slowpoke adds: “This song is a series of, mostly true, stories about, arguably the coolest cat in downtown St John’s, Sid! He sat in on a few of our Jams when the bar Distortion was open and even came to some shows. We were lucky enough to have the great Al Yeti Bones of ‘age of wolves’, ‘Gypsy Chief Goliath’ and many other bands to feature on vocals. He absolutely killed it!”

Beloved booking agent, #1 parent, and multi-instrumentalist, Sean Padilla a.k.a. The Cocker Spaniels spent a year recording his latest batch of songs, The Cocker Spaniels Are Still Alive And So Are You -due out via Evil Island Fortress on August 13th 2021. Combining elements of punk, shoegaze, power-pop, homemade field recordings, and funk, The Cocker Spaniels Are Still Alive And So Are You is both inspiriting and cathartic. Essentially a solo album, though Padilla’s kids did sit in on some tracks (check out “Rice” and “Prepared Xylophone”), the album works as a snapshot of American life during some of the weirdest, darkest few years in recent memory.
