Published Oct 07, 2010A true Maritime man about town, Fred Squire has had his hand in the bands Shotgun & Jaybird, Calm Down It's Monday and various Julie Doiron collaborations, including their work on Mount Eerie's Lost Wisdom and Daniel, Fred & Julie with Attack in Black's Dan Romano. For someone this prolific, however, we don't seem to be hearing from Squire on his own very often. Fortunately, his previously tour-only EP March 12 will be getting a proper release this fall.
In a recent interview with Exclaim!, Eric's Trip mastermind Rick White revealed that March 12 would be getting a vinyl reissue via his own Blue Fog Recordings.
"It's a really great record," White said. "[Squire] gave us a few more songs to work with, we're putting it out on twelve-inch, and I think it's ten songs now. If you've heard the EP, he gave us the original files so we could master it properly and it's sounding real good. He did a great job; he's the king of making old gear work."
According to a new listing, March 12 is now getting its re-release on November 2. In the meantime, the haunting tracks "You Sing Low And We Will Sing High" and "Theme From A Northern Movie" are available for streaming via Weird Canada.
1. "What's That Over There A Dead Rainbow?"
2. "You Sing Low And We Will Sing High"
3. "Old Times Past New Times"
4. "The Future Of Tradition"
5. "Pretty Bird"
