The legacy of Hamilton punk pioneers Teenage Head continues to grow. Warner Music Canada is releasing "Fun Comes Fast," a remastered 20-song compilation spanning the group's 40-year career. It will be available Friday, Nov. 24, for download, as a single CD or a special pink vinyl double album. "Warner has done a really nice job on this, a lot of care has gone into it," says Teenage Head bassist and cofounder Steve Mahon.
There's a place where all great jazz musicians aspire to be. It's a place where the rule books are left behind, where written charts are replaced by feel and swing, pushing old standards into untested territory. Some call it being "in the moment." It's a place Diana Krall knows well. She heard it as a teenager when her early mentor, the late Hamilton-based jazz trombonist Dave McMurdo, gave her a Bill Evans record to play.
Buffy Sainte-Marie remains very much a protest singer, although she's a bit uncomfortable with the word "protest." She prefers to call her work "activist" songs. At 76, she's still railing against the injustices of the world — war, poverty, greed and racism. All those themes can be found on her latest album "Medicine Songs," a mix of new compositions with some updated and re-recorded versions of old favourites, like "Universal Soldier" and "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee."
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
