Trivia

  • The band recorded the song, "Something On", while being stuck in the studio during the infamous ice storm of 1998 that brought havoc to much of eastern Ontario, north-east US, but mostly Quebec. This had an effect on the lyrical content within the song. Such as:

"Outside there's hectic action, The ice is covering the trees, And one of em's interconnecting, With my Chevrolet Caprice."
