If you've ever had a conversation with me and it even touched upon music then you've heard my praising of the Rock n Roll force known as The Constantines. Approaching national treasure status faster than you can say 'Gordon Lightfoot's Baby Mama.'
It's been about 8 or 9 months since their third full length Tournament of Hearts came out on Three-Gut Records and Sub-Pop, yet it rarely leaves a music player in my vicinity. Out of the Constantines camp today comes a video for Working Full-Time. Available on the Sub-Pop website, as well as YouTube. I'm assuming that soon you'll be able to catch this on your favourite music video playing television channel. I'm not sure if Muchmusic is big enough for both Leah Miller and The Cons. My guess is that the sheer volume of "the rock" brought forth by the video will shake Ms. Miller's confidence to the core. No longer able to provide viewers with the one-two punch of Matte Babel's street cred and her banal wit, Ms. Miller will soon find herself jobless. Then destitute. Forced to live on the streets Leah Miller will perform her sarcastic insights to tourists and passerby. Her ability to get a hot meal and bed for the evening will depend on your charity folks. So be nice Eh!
The band doesn't have too many shows left this summer. You can catch them:
August 11 @ Wakestock, Toronto Island
August12 @ Wolfe Island Music Festival
I plan at being at Wolfe Island, as should you.
