For those who are unfamiliar with the details of the band’s sordid history, we offer a brief biographical note:
Sunshine, longtime exponents of the derriere-garde in Canadian music, are entirely mythical figures, figments of their parents’ warped imaginations. They were raised by yaks, by whom they were always treated as members of the family, and ever since they were old enough to eat with the grownups they have been merely the front for a vast international syndicate of ne’er-do-wells. But enough of Sunshine the artists. What of Sunshine the bon vivants, men about town, and idols of three continents? At last reports they had settled in Vancouver, British Columbia, where they earn precarious livings peddling dope to the local school children and rolling the occasional drunk. Here they spend their declining years with their shrunken head collection, their Nobel Prizes, and their memories.
