MaybeSmith3.jpg(by Li Robbins) Maybe Smith, maybe Colin Skrapek, either way, he's something of an indie star in Saskatchewan. But the rest of the country? CBC Radio 3's Grant Lawrence says he's "Canada's best kept musical secret." This might mean he's a secret to you too. So our task today is to reveal the truth...about Maybe Smith.

- Smith is easier to pronounce than the Polish Skrapek -- for those who do not speak Polish, that is.

- Maybe Smith is the name of a gunslinger in a 1950s film. Not maybe, it is. But we're not sure of the name of the movie.

- He likes creating pop music packed with nifty samples and what he aptly calls "electronic squiggles."

- Someone once described Maybe Smith's music as "a wonderfully bizarre combination of Phil Spector and Frank Gehry." Hmm....

- Those wall-of-soundish songs are frequently about unusual things. Like the "synchrotron particle accelerator," or a "walrus with a gunswordaxe."

- This concert was recorded at Louis' Pub on the University of Saskatchewan. You can hear it also at Concerts on Demand.
