Burkina Faso

This inspired a bit of reminiscence between me and a co-worker:

Pat J: I saw Terror of Tiny Town live at SUDS
Pat J: and at the Unwinder, back in the day
Craig: yeah my buddy’s band opened for them at the Unwinder
Pat J: really?
Pat J: they changed their name like three times during their set, IIRC
Pat J: started out Bitch Jihad and ended up Magnum something
Pat J: or the other way around
Pat J: TOTT was opening for some Canadian grunge band
Pat J: after they played I left, because nothin’ was gonna top what I’d just seen and heard
Pat J: not a single track on the CD I bought is a disappointment
Pat J: but Burkina Faso is a favourite
Craig: I need to get a tape from my buddy — not sure what band they were when they opened…
Craig: Kilgore Trout maybe?
Craig: but they had a side project called Forces of Destruction
Craig: and they have a song called Grand Moff Tarkin
Craig: and it’s great
Pat J: they were Magnum Jihad at the end, Seven Year Bitch at the start
Pat J: and Geoff Berner, the lead singer for TOTT, took the stage and said, “Let’s have a round of applause for, uh, Bitch Jihad, or whatever that was”
Craig: haha
