Covered in Dust
You might say that Montreal based singer-songwriter Malcolm Bauld has been trying to make up for a nickname-less youth. To attempt the unenviable task of playing every city or town in Canada (when was the last time you rocked Okotoks, Alberta? ) you're going to need some help. Greg Macpherson, Billy the Kid, Statues, Tom Fun Orchestra, Horses and Anthem Red have all played a role in his touring life. In Montreal you're likely to find him picking up whatever's on stage or in the studio and helping out folks like Dirty Tricks, Pawa Up First, Yesterday's Ring, Plastic Patrick, and Fifth Hour Hero to name a few. He's supported Amos Lee, Jets To Brazil, The Constantines, The New Amsterdams, Crooked Fingers, The Living End and The Weakerthans at home. On his most recent recordings you'll hear members of Sudbury power pop combo Statues (Radio 81, Pelado Records). Other tracks have included members of Montreal punks The Sainte Catherines (Fat Records), Mike Feuerstack (Snailhouse) and Abigail Lapell. Brought up on a steady diet of everything from seventies brit punk to American folk, Bauld is clearly hooked on the melodies and rhythms of simple, honest rock and roll.
