Album Notes
Vile Richard is comprised of singer/songwriters Olaf Alders and Andrew Vanhorn, joined by a quirky collective of musical friends and neighbours. Alders and Vanhorn have been seen and heard across Eastern Canada, performing live on TV and radio from Hamilton to Halifax. Notable venues include Toronto's CityTV and Edge 102 radio, ATV/CTV in Atlantic Canada and Ottawa's "The New RO". Overseas radio play includes BBC Radio 2's Bob Harris Country. The band has also written and performed music for indie film and stage productions as well as performing improvised pieces for live theatre at Second City.

Having met as Humanities students at McMaster University, Alders and Vanhorn soon started performing regularly at venues around the Hamilton area. Vanhorn put together a band called "Rice", which featured Alders on guitar and bass. Alders formed a band called "Vile Richard", which often featured Vanhorn on guitar and bass. After several years of performing the same songs as two different bands, the boys decided to put all of their energy behind one project, Vile Richard.

In 2003, Vile Richard started off by releasing, "Lucky Me". The band then toured Eastern Canada opening for Mike Trebilcock (Killjoys) in support of the album. Although the band does change it up throughout the disc, "Lucky Me" is primarily a rock album, strong on guitars and harmonies with the occasional pop hook thrown in for good measure. Fans of Elliot Smith, Buffalo Tom, Matthew Sweet and the Lemonheads will feel right at home.
