True Myth - "True Myth" {Canada} [1979] (prog rock)

True Myth was formed in London, Ontario as an offshoot of a class project by students at Fanshawe College -- a music school. Tom Treumuth was the brainchild and keyboardist who helped the band secure a deal with Warner Bros. Records in 1979. Their debut album was the first digital album recorded in Canada and the second in the world (the first being Stevie Wonders' 'Secret Life Of Plants'). Treumuth soon opened his own record label, Hypnotic, and the band switched for their follow-up album 'Telegram' in 1981. In the meantime, Treumuth had been moonlighting with another Toronto studio project The Fictions on their debut album in 1980. Treumuth would go on to produce the likes of Honeymoon Suite and dozens of other Canadian acts during the 1980's many of them on his surviving indie label Hypnotic. Line-up: Malcolm McGuigan (vocals) Tony Cook (guitar) Bob Stirajs (guitar) Steve McKenna (bass) Tom Treumuth (keyboards) Kirk Devereaux (drums)

Wow! Another great album that I never knew existed. It's kind of like a heavier, yet jazzier Renaissance. Fantastic performances from all involved. Thanks for posting this!

Hi
Surely, this TRUE MYTH is an excellent piece !
I search the canadian band SEPTEMBER : First of (1979 )! It' s very rare and it is described like in the style of the excellent SUNDBLIND LION Observer (of USA).
If possible, it would be wise to contact Isabelbc who knows the place for the rarest gems !
Thank you
