Assembled by Vancouver punk rock journalist and THE EVAPORATORS singer NARDWUAR THE HUMAN SERVIETTE, Busy Doing Nothing! features ANDREW WK, FRANZ FERDINAND, THE CRIBS, FUAD AND THE FEZTONES, KATE NASH, JILL BARBER and SAGE FRANCIS all showing their love for Canadian punk heritage preservation! Side A kicks off with an original collaboration by Andrew WK and The Evaporators. The action continues with Wakefield, England’s The Cribs covering ’70s Vancouver punk band The Dishrags, London’s Kate Nash covering ’90s Vancouver “cuddle-core” band (and Mint Records’ signature act) Cub, and Franz Ferdinand’s rendition of the legendary Pointed Sticks’ “Real Thing.” Fuad & the Feztones, Bobby Beaton and John Davis from Montreal’s veteran garage punk band The Gruesomes, offer their take on The Evaporators’ first single from 1992, and Sage Francis raps on a verse of The Evaporators’ “Hot Dog High.” The Evaporators rule side B, delivering a number of original tunes plus covers of 1970s rockabilly truck driver Doug Rutledge (featuring Andrew WK and Canadian singer / songwriter Jill Barber) and The Pointed Sticks. The album closes with a clip from the first interview Nardwuar ever did with Franz Ferdinand. This fantastic collection also includes a free 40-page 2013 calendar of vintage 1970s punk rock photos taken by renowned Vancouver photographer Bev Davies!
