Album Notes
Zeke Hoskin learned about social conflict by growing up English-speaking in French-speaking Montreal. He started writing songs earlier than he can remember, but got serious about it when he was a student at Acadia University in the Sixties. After a decade of trying seriously to be a real (employed) physicist, he ended up programming computers and hanging out in folk clubs in Vancouver, BC.

He released a couple of cassette albums and had one song, Hunting The Duck, picked up by Buddy Wasisname And TheOther Fellers and sung on nationwide TV. Drunk on this early success, he remixed the best tracks of the cassettes into his CD Lethal Reprieve.

About then he married folk organizer and songstress Flip Breskin and moved to Bellingham, WA. Since then they have recorded a bunch of home-made albums that they sell at gigs. Zeke's songs get sung across Canada and down the west coast of the US, and have been covered by seven other singers and bands that we know of.

I realized, a while back, that I only have some of these songs, and only on cassette, acquired at the 1998 Callahanicon. (*waves to Zeke and Flip*)

Good music, from the silly ("Bicycle Fish") to the serious ("Mytilene's Reprieve", "The Landlords").
