Mr. Pine is the brainchild of Matthew McLennan and Kevin Scott. Both gentlemen, having extremely varied taste in music - running the gamut from classical to punk, traditional British folk to extreme noise - desired to create something new and 'timeless'. Something involving diverse and interesting instrumentation, folkish elements, hazy mysticism, demented maypole dances, and fractured poetry. Although we are fans of the avant-garde, it is our intention to give rein to our melodic side in the incarnation of Mr.
Pine. Our debut album was recorded at Mid Ocean Studios in Winnipeg, and will be released early in March 2006.
