Back in the day, the Secret V’s seemed like the kind of band perpetually billed fifth on all-ages shows at the Arcadian Hall. On the last-laugh front, the group produced a sombre, midnight-reverie masterpiece that’s right behind Slow’s “Have Not Been the Same” as the greatest song to ever come out of Vancouver. Try not to lose yourself in the sadness when singer Bruce A. drones “I went and exceeded the recommended dose.”

Ray Tremblay (aka Ray Condo): bass, vocals
Naomi Moriyama: guitar, vocals, organ
Ken Jones: drums
