    The Puddle have been around in one form or another since 1983, with singer/songwriter/guitarist George D. Henderson at the helm for the duration. Musicians who've passed through the Puddle ranks include Shayne Carter, Lesley Paris, Peter Gutteridge (Snapper). Celia Patel (aka Celia Mancini, of King Loser) sings backing vocals on a number of tracks here on Puddle's 'lost album', originally recorded in 1992 but not released at the time as the band broke up.

    Now Powertool Records have come to the rescue to show it the light of day.

Rough Church was conceived after the demise of Ferdinand, the band that existed from 1994-2003. Baseball, Concrete, rare steamy rain, tumbleweeds and lost poems about dirty chimneys are what influence this band. It spits out indie pop classic jams that get us compared to everything from Minutemen, Pixies, Broken Social Scene, WAR and Grand Funk. Deal with it! We can't get away from it. ... more
