TAKE 5: Steve Brough of Lodown

Take 5 is a new feature on "Musically Speaking", where I'll ask five quick questions to various movers and shakers from Windsor's local arts and entertainment world about their thoughts on Windsor's independent music scene, past and present.

Take 5 with...Steve Brough

Steve Brough is one of the men in this city who bring the thunder. And by that, I mean he's one of the hardest hitting drummers in town. He's the skinsman behind the bombastic rhythm section of Lodown, one of Windsor's veteran hard rock bands. After toiling for years with highly successful demos honed by years on the road across Canada and the U.S., Lodown released their highly anticipated debut CD, Black Horse, on Fontana/Universal Records back in 2006. The boys in Lodown have been road testing some new material over the past year and look poised to return to the studio - and the road - for the follow-up this year.

The local band I am most excited about right now is...

The best local album I've heard in some time is...
Fogcutter (2008)

If there's one thing I wish the local music scene would do more of is...
Mixed genre shows. Sometimes sitting through five bands from the same genre is painful.

Sometimes I wish this local band was still together...
Village Idiot.

My favourite place to see a band in town is...
The Coach and Horses.
