This was the poster for the 3 day Garage Days fest held way back in 2002 at the always grimy Royal Albert, home of general filth. Unfortunately I was outta town when this all took place so I can't give you any info on how it all went down. I don't think I've blabbed about The Hestons, one of my fave Winnipeg combos back in those days and the only local band who were really going for the full-on Estrus/Rip Off Records '90s garage sound. Another great local band who never had an official release, the only Hestons recordings I know of were made very late in their career and feature a more mature, serious sound as opposed to the high octane teenage trash they were known for in their heyday. There's a CDR out and about with those recordings on it and one track from the sessions turned up on the Winnipeg Riot! comp. Stay tuned for MORE ACTION!
