LIPP
2011-2013
Shoecore hydra.

Granny found himself hankering to play bass again. As luck would have it, a new acquaintance (Andrew Masuda) mentioned that he and a friend (Melodie Carew) wanted to put a band together; he was tasked with finding a bassist and she with finding a drummer. LIPP, or Low Income Party People, was born and started jamming in original drummer, Cameron De Lat's basement (the legendary 507). The sound of the band was rather spacey and shoegazey as the set was seeded with solo material Andrew had been perfoming and De Latís drumming was a bit jazzy. Shows were played and LIPP were forced to find a new rehearsal space due to Cameron moving out of the 507 (just ahead of a noise-related eviction).



Not long after setting up their new jam space in the basement of a Kensington Market community center, Cameron left the band citing work issues and travel plans but not before cutting a few rough demos. Meaghan Bent was tapped to fill the void and the band got a little poppier and in the case of a few songs, a bit country. More shows were played and Meaghan too left the band. At this point the band decided to leave their current jam space due to security concerns (theyíd found their gear removed to the community centerís stage area having been used by someone else without permission). Granny was building the Polyhaus art space with a studio in it so the band would jam there.



Finding a third drummer took a remarkably long time and more songs were written while the search continued. Eventually Bennett Jones Phillips joined and the sound got punkier (due not only to Bennet being a veteran Hardcore drummer, but also because many of Mel's recent songwriting contributions were leaning that way). Granny tracked some demos but due to the studio wiring not being complete they didnít get mixed before LIPP got the opportunity to record with local punk legend Jimmy Vapid. Due to an accident in his studio a week after the tracking session, Jimmyís hard drive was wiped before final mixing of all the songs LIPP recorded. Only 5 (of 8 or 9) progress mixes were deemed releasable and were put out on a self-titled cassette tape. The 3 songs recorded by Granny at Polyhaus were not mixed before Polyhaus was forced to shut down.



After a few more shows, Melodie had to up and move to Edmonton for work. The remainder of the band plans to continue to jam and see what happens. Melodie will likely visit. Granny is still looking for a new spot to set his studio up in so he can mix those 3 songs recorded at Polyhaus.
