The Philosopher Kings

Just found out that one of my favourite bands The Philosopher Kings have a new album coming out next month. This Canadian band only released 2 studio albums in the mid-90s and a live album in 2000... and have been on a hiatus since. The individual band members have been busy: Jason Levine and James McCollum went off and formed the cartoon pop band Prozzäk while lead singer Gerald Eaton went and did a solo album under the pseudonym Jarvis Church. Eaton and fellow Philosopher King Brian West as the producing team Track & Field "discovered" and produced Nelly Furtado & K'Naan.

The Philosopher Kings - Cry [originally by Godley & Creme]
The Philosopher Kings - If I Ever Lose This Heaven [originally by Quincy Jones]

Prozzäk - Wild Thing/Poor Boy Medley [originally by The Troggs]

Jarvis Church featuring K'naan - One [originally by U2]
This is a really nice version of the song, although I'm not a huge fan of the rap rant near the end.
