Comments: Yet another annual summer pilgrimage down to the old Ontario Place Forum for Rhonda and I to catch Gowan in his natural habitat. We headed down to that mystical gathering place by the lake with no tickets, purchasing lawn’s as we entered. Like the previous year, he was between albums yet still managed to floor those assembled with a pair of tunes from his yet to be released Lost Brotherhood LP. Awake The Giant was balls to the wall rock ‘n’ roll, yet it was the other tune, Holding This Rage which really captured my imagination. A song written about The Troubles, even if in a off handed way. Powerful, powerful stuff. Gowan was definitely growing as an artist.
