The Hilotrons' last hurrah and live tunes from the Claytones

Mike Dubue office.jpg


As you can tell by the picture to your left, Hilotrons frontman Mike Dubue doesn't like to take an ordinary picture... and it's probably that same instinct that's created the Hilotrons' danceable mash up of electronic, pop and even internationl pop influenced music over the years.


But all good things must come to an end... and tonight at the Black Sheep Inn in Wakefield, QC, is the Hilotrons' last live show. Mike stopped by the studio to talk about why the band's calling it quits after 11 years... and to share some tracks from their final yet-to-be released album, At Least There's Commotion.

And Almonte's Claytones stopped by the Bandwidth studios to talk about their debut album, Lake in the Night -- and to share a few live songs off the record! Oh, and they do a mighty fine impersonation of Alvin and the Chipmunks, too...
