Wish & Flo - Bed Trax


Bed Trax



Newfie love songs from the heart by a couple of real Newfoundland jewels featuring Wish Crosby, Flo Murphy, and Stretch E.

Whenever I hear Wish and Flo I’m reminded of the acts that I would see at the Padarnic Lounge back in the day with names like Lester Fudister and the Dory Boys, which would be two guys with a canned backing track pretending to play guitars (they weren’t plugged in, which was a dead give away) and “sing” all the classics. Wish and Flo are the alter-egos of Colleen Power and Roger Maunder and they are a pitch perfect and loving send up of those kind of shaky outport barroom trad bands and the album is also a tribute to the recently departed legend Frank Willis. The album is a lot of fun with careful attention to the authenticity of the (crappy) sounds and well observed domestic humor. Although it gets a little weird in places, songs like “Poisoned With You” and “Stunned” are classics that should be played in Legions and Columbus clubs for years to come.
