Yesterday’s Ring
_

Formed in 2001 by Hugo Mudie and Frederic Jacques, both from punk outfit The Sainte Catherines, Yesterday’s Ring was only supposed to be an acoustic side band for fun, where punk rock would step aside and leave place to different musical styles. The band will really see the day in Memphis, Tennessee, on a day-off during one of The Sainte Catherines’ North-American tours in June 2001, where the 2 friends started writing country-folk songs. These songs appeared 6 months later on a split CD released on Dare To Care Records, label partly owned by Mudie. This split CD also features Montreal’s ska-punk band The Couch Addiction. The 5 deep and touching Yesterday’s Ring songs on the CD received an unexpected and warm welcome by local press and underground music lovers, which created a hype and demand for the band, leading them to perform over 30 shows in 2002, mostly in Quebec.

Two years later, Yesterday’s Ring officially became a four piece band including all the songwriters from The Sainte Catherines: Hugo Mudie, Frédérique Jacques, Louis Valiquette and Marc-André Beaudet. This fusion gave the band the extra strength and knowledge it needed to move a step ahead, making the new songs, richer in emotions and also more accessible to a larger public.

On "Onze Chansons Pour Faire Pleurer Les Morts-Vivants", you will find, on top of 3 acoustic guitars; bass, harmonica, violin, piano, as well as many different percussions. Not surprising when you know that their main influences are no less than great songwriters such as Tom Waits, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Rod Stewart and Johnny Cash. Simple and catchy songs with great lyrics is the recipe. Take all those influences, add the experience gained by the band members in their respective punk rock bands, and Yesterday’s Ring gives us a perfectly mature and original folk-country-punk that is sure to move you and send shivers down your spine.

Yesterday’s Ring - Back From El Rancho
Store

Les Sainte Catherines revêtissent brièvement leurs chapeaux de cowboy pour nous livrer un autre diamant brut de Yesterday’s Ring. Back From El Rancho est la réédition cd d’un 12 pouces limité à 300 copies, paru et écoulé entièrement l’an dernier. Les 4 pièces nous ramènent dans cette introspection souvent teintée de bière et whiskey qui étale les tripes de ces musiciens routards. Back From El Rancho est une place de choix sur la banquette arrière de la camionnette des Yesterday’s Ring et des Sainte Catherines.
