Today we’re very pleased to bring you an exclusive first listen of a brand new EP from London, Ontario “pizza punk” Wasted Potential. “Nervous Sessions” will be digitally released on June 1st with a pre-order for a cassette version released through Get Party Records and Curt Murder Fan Club (limited to 50 copies).
Give “Nervous Conditions” a listen below.
Born in the backrooms of London, ON – littered with pizza boxes and beer cans, OSAP loans and amp tubes is Wasted Potential. Made up of members from bands that no longer matter – but once held great promise the very make up of the bands past gives light to the name – a reality so many musicians face – to put everything in and getting nothing back. But that may have changed with this group of seasoned local heroes, going against the grain of their very own name – as a powerhouse mix of attitude, talent and a live show that envelopes the audience into the fold of the angst-y anxiety ridden world of front man Danny Kidd – usually wasted, these guys are doing anything but wasting their potential.

From Deforesters Facebook page, because anything I could write about them would pale in comparison:
“Deforesters are four dudes that make noise together in a semi-organized fashion and also drink beer with the lofty ambitions of one day getting free beer in exchange for making the aforementioned noise.
But, as yet, they have accomplished as close to nothing as is humanly possible, both musically and otherwise. Any further details would be superfluous.”
I don’t know about you but reading that, I’d love this band if their EP contained nothing but the four of them farting into a mic for ten minutes. As a bonus though, the four tracks on ‘Bones’ are not only not farts, but are four catchy, gritty, well written street punk sing alongs. Which makes me instantly wish that the band ‘doing as close to nothing as is humanly possible’ wasn’t true, at least on the musical output side.
Deforesters are from the city everyone (in Canada anyway) loves to hate, Toronto. They’re the result of the breaking up of some other Toronto area bands that I would name if I thought there was a chance in hell of you having heard of any of them. Although their greatest name-drop to fame in the punk scene right now is that Zack, the drummer of this band is also the drummer of buzz garnering up and comers PUP, who just dropped their full length in Canada (record review here) and will be dropping that same record in the States later this year on Side One Dummy.
Deforesters play a hard hitting brand of catchy punk that doesn’t sound a million miles away from what bands like Off With Their Heads and Dear Landlord are churning out these days (or whenever the last time Dear Landlord recorded something was).
At four songs, ‘Bones’ rips by in a hurry, but it leaves a lasting impression. Don’t let their self penned bio fool you, these are four well crafted, exciting and serious punk songs obviously written by dudes with deep ideals and a fiery passion for the music they create. Then again, maybe they just sit down and shit these songs out two at a time and throw em on a computer to upload to their bandcamp page and do it all in an afternoon without much thought or effort whatsoever. Either way, this is quality punk rock that I can’t recommend enough.
With PUP in high demand these days and poised for great things, I suspect it could be a while before we see a proper full length emanate from this Ontarian foursome, which is a shame and which makes ‘Bones’ a bit of a tease, albeit a tasty tease. And whether or not Deforester gather up enough energy to get their asses up off their La-Z-Boy’s and do a proper tour or just keep it local, as far as I’m concerned, they’re officially a band to watch.
