A Can-rock chapter that I'd missed: Troyka

It was rather flattering of Rob Frith at the Neptoon in-store to assume, Canadian music journalist that I am, that I'd heard of prairie rockers Troyka when he introduced me to a couple of members of the band - and convenient, too, because I could then simply proceed through the conversation making like I knew who they were. I confess that I did that - it was easier and more polite than going, "Who?" Now that I listen to one of their songs on Youtube, I kinda wish I remembered what we talked about, but... beer'll do that. It's a kind of awesome, uniquely proggy rock tune. Apparently the Troyka LP is available on a French label, if I'm recalling correctly... Hmm...
