The Eh, B.C.s of Canada

More in an occasional series of postings about our neighbors to El Norte:

The Arcade Fire, known for their fiery live shows and brilliant musicianship and sharp lyrics, are basically a husband-wife team from Montreal that morphed into one of the world's hottest bands. Win Butler, originally from the U.S., and Regine Chassagne, began a mere four years ago, and have produced two of the best recording of the decade in this year's Neon Bible and 2004's Funeral.

Besides the dramatic live shows, Arcade Fire members - usually about eight or ten depending on the lineup - are known for playing multiple instruments, including mouth harp, hurdy gurdy, accordions and xylophones in addition to their trademark guitar and violins.


Here they are live with the Thin White Duke himself, in "Wake Up."
