Shotgun Jimmie
The Onlys
Delorean Recordings
At Marshwind Farms near Sackville, New Brunswick, is this guy, Shotgun Jimmie. He made this fine recording, The Onlys, which he’ll play for you November 17 at The Seahorse. Sometimes he sings from loneliness, not in a sad way necessarily---more like when you’re alone with your thoughts. You notice, as he does on “Summersound”, “the smell of the fresh cut summer-summer lawn/all the lupin are in bloom/the perfect mixture of scent and moisture.” The beauty of words, birds, sleep, night, earth’s rotation, late-night calls and souls who join in without wrecking the feeling. It’s all here on this gorgeous record of life at Marshwind Farms.

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
