ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hot on the heels of Wilfred N & the Grown Men’s new “Stop Go Romeo” album comes yet another cd -– The Wilfred N & the Grown Men “TAKE OUT MENU”.
The occasion? Well, we only recently realized that it was our anniversary! DOUBLE anniversary, actually – 30 years since Wilfred N & the Grown Men burst onto the Canadian indie music scene, and 25 years since their quirkilicious debut album, “Riding Double”. TAKE OUT MENU is our little way of thanking our fans with a selection of faves from over the years. “Thunder on the Tundra” is there (and make sure to catch our video for the cool sci-fi rocker on You Tube!) . . . “Indian Summer” . . . “Knockadoor Ginger” . . . the famous b-side “I Can’t Get The Nerve” . . . and “Sad New Day” . . . lots of fine, fine and deliciously ‘assorted’ items. And some of our tunes on the TAKE OUT MENU have only been available on vinyl, until now. Not to mention a few ‘rare’ items and some rarer-than-rare ones that have actually never been released – again, until now. That’s why it’s a TAKE OUT MENU!! It’s sweet – it’s SWEET ‘n’ SOUR! Be sure to check the inside cover to make your selection from the TAKE OUT MENU. Btw, the full title of our new ‘best of’ cd is actually “TAKE OUT MENU – 15 items”. But there are really 19 items . . . that’s what a DEAL it is!

Here are some morsels from reviews of our music over the years:

“This lush and accessible pop music transcends trends yet doesn’t sound dated. It is timeless yet timely. Neat trick.”. . . “Except for maybe a Prairie Beach Boys’ kind of vibe, it is truly original.” Mike Ross, The Edmonton SUN

“Waiting for Luck to Come is smart, crafty pop containing moments both unexpected and lovely: some stray Hawaiian guitar, a gentle bossa nova groove, melodies that recall Sparklehorse as much as the Beatles . . . their music sounds the way all great music does, playful, inventive and alive.” Tom Murray, SEE Magazine

“A complete alternative to the usual ‘alternative fare’ . . . They make music that expands the mind.”
Gordon’s Flash
What’s Hot That’s Not Signed
September, 1995

“With their Beach Boys-like vocal harmonies and strong sense of melody, this quartet deserves far more than just regional recognition.”
Music & Media
Europe’s Radio-Active Newsweekly
July, 1995

“Displaying their enormous gifts for exquisite melodies and delightful harmonies, Lift Off is another high-quality, memorable offering from the Grown Men . . . Kozub’s writing is refreshing and meaningful.”

Neal Watson
The Edmonton SUN
January, 1991

“Lush melodies, wispy vocals – it’s slick without resorting to any production gimmicks or conventional AM radio artifice. Very tasty, especially if you think that Katy Lied was a great LP.
Hi Fi News & Record Review, UK
February, 1991

“Not only do Wilf Kozub and Jamie Philp consistently sing gorgeous harmony inside gracious melodies and immaculate production, they’re doing it in a strata of the market that’s woefully unrepresented by meaningful music.”

Helen Metella
The Edmonton JOURNAL
December, 1990

“This collection of 14 tracks cries out for a major record company with promotional clout.”
Richard Flohil
The RECORD
December, 1990

“What sets this independent release above most others is the execution: tasteful, very tuneful and immaculately produced . . . It is commercial in the best sense of the word, and intelligent. Sound quality and musicianship rank with the best of the majors; they deserve national airplay for an effort of this calibre.”
Robert Carlberg
Electronic Musician Magazine
December, 1987

“Wilfred N and the Grown Men, experts at rolling snatches of the familiar into something uniquely brilliant, have attached billowing, Beach Boy-ish harmonies to a loping cowboy beat on the single Indian Summer.” Helen Metella
The Edmonton JOURNAL


“essentially, this is unique: an attractive mixture of space music and dance-floor pop.”

Liam Lacey
The Toronto Globe and Mail
June 4, 1987


“ . . . you wonder what might have happened if Brian Wilson had met these guys before he jumped in the sandbox 15 years ago.” Alan Kellogg
The Edmonton JOURNAL
August 23, 1984


“I’ve never heard an Edmonton band with such extraordinarily good original songs”

Graham Hicks
The Edmonton JOURNAL
1979
