Matthew Good Band

One of Canada’s leading alternative rock bands of the 90s, the Matthew Good Band was based around the central figure of singer-songwriter Matthew Good (b. 29 June 1971, Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada). He started his music career as part of an acoustic folk outfit touring the Canadian circuit. This line-up recorded a five-song demo before Good returned to Vancouver and formed a rock band with Geoff Lloyd (bass) and Charlie Quintana (drums). The latter was soon replaced by Ian Browne (b. 12 November 1973, New Westminster, British Columbia, Canada), and Dave Genn (b. 2 March 1969, White Rock, British Columbia, Canada) was added on guitar and keyboards. The new line-up of the Matthew Good Band recorded and independently released 1995’s Last Of The Ghetto Astronauts. The album gained airplay on local alternative stations and eventually sold in excess of 20, 000 copies, leading to a recording contract with the US label Private Music. The band recorded the Raygun EP for the label, but owing to record company machinations were released from their contract. They recorded their second album, Underdogs, independently at Greenhouse Studios in Burnaby, British Columbia. A distribution contract with A&M Records and extensive radio play of the singles ‘Everything Is Automatic’ and ‘Apparitions’ confirmed the band’s popularity, however, and the album went on to achieve platinum sales. In 1998, Rich Priske (b. 29 August 1969) replaced Lloyd on bass. The band’s third collection, Beautiful Midnight, was released by Universal Records the following September, and swiftly topped the Canadian charts. The creation of The Audio Of Being was a fraught affair, with Genn leaving during the recording and Good undergoing difficult throat surgery. Following the album’s release Good pulled the plug on the band and embarked on a career as a solo artist. He made his debut in 2003 with the album Avalanche.

This band sucks. What is it with these millennial bands and vocalists who can't sing ? Is it supposed to be cool ?

I love Pandora and all, but for everyone except sarah.curk, you really need to listen to MGB's Beautiful Midnight in order from start to finish. The album is seamless. It's been my favourite album since I bought it in 2000 and it probably always will be.

Matthew Good has at least another two albums out: Underdogs and The Audio Of Being. Well-produce d and the albums are always pure sonic enjoyment.

Very interesting Band

an amazing philosophica l band. their views on consumerism and life in general come alive in their heavy lyrics. Matthew Good is a musical genius. his lyrics tell the story of how f**ked up society really is.

I think they are great...and if they suck, well that's just something thrown in extra with a fantastic sound. A bit metallic but leaning away from Goth towards Acoustic Rock, and the station generates great affiliated sounds.
