Welcome to Pure Nard Music.

Blithely we skip through the falling snow, unaware that our slippers are damper than the ocean at sunset. Wait. Damper ain't a word. Luckily for us, the average Canadian has a grade 5 vocabulary.

If you are at all interested in becoming a part of this wonderful family factory, give us a talkie.

Mike Harloff - Sunday's Best (Album Cover)


Jul 10 '09 -

Big update! Bristol-based Mike Harloff, now going by the moniker 'Fitness Club Fiasco' has a new song up on his myspace, and will be releasing a full-length in the UK and Canada this fall! Also, Brantford swamp-rock band Dead Love Triangles have their Ford Plant debut full-length album, The Wandering Sickness available in our downloads section, completely free! False Heroics' album The Salvation Navy is now available via NoiseTrade, a very interesting pay-what-you-can/pay-by-recommending system.
