Video of the Day…Highschool by The Flashing Lights



A little Canadian throwback to 1999 when Halifax was called “Seattle north”. Quite a scene coming out of that little city: Sloan, Thrush Hermit, Super Friendz, Eric’s Trip and this band – The Flashing Lights (fronted by the Super Friendz Matt Murphy).

I never understood why The Flashing Lights didn’t get more airplay – three records of sweet power pop. This song – Highschool is just a sample of what they threw down.

Sorry about the crappy video quality….

Domestic now, but spent early to late 80s playing drums in a hair metal band in Toronto. Since then I've lost the hair and have found new ways to scratch the rock and roll itch.
