Many artists put out enjoyable music, but rarely do they leave you hanging on the edge of your seat; wondering what the next track will be like. You won't find anything predictable when listening to this collection of mellow jazz, heavy surf music, and even borderline-western tunes. The tracks are short, but plentiful; putting together what I consider to be an excellent album.

Like the Ventures, Dick Dale, the Duals, and Duane Eddy before them, Shadowy Men's propulsive rhythms and lower-register melodies prove that you don't need a vocalist to have a successful rock and roll band.
From the confident frenzy of the characteristically twangy guitars on the opening cuts "Unwatchable/Spend a Night, Not a Fortune", Sport Fishin' is a consistent, if somewhat underwhelming, follow-up to the band's previous CD and true masterpiece, Dim the Lights, Chill the Ham.
Once again, the Shadowy Men approach their music lightheartedly, as the song titles "Fortune Tellin' Chicken", Off Our Back Conrad Black" (Canada's widely mocked newspaper magnate), and "Honey, You're Wasting Ammo" illustrate.
Despite the CD's light-hearted approach, this turned out to be the band's last release before they broke up, which might explain why it fails to capture the consistency and enthusiasm of their earlier recordings. Current fans will find more to enjoy, but the bait may be too insubstantial to encourage bites from new listeners.
Note: Fans looking for the Kids in the Hall theme can find it on Savvy Show Stoppers under the title "Having an Average Weekend."

I've been a fan of surf, and surf like music for years. Let me tell you Shadowy Men are the best I have heard. Of course you can't have surf music from Canada (as they so plainly state on a track title on this album), so I guess you call it snow music, sled music maybe. Let me just say that their music goes way beyond skill and into the realm of perfection. If there is a heaven, they must play Shadowy Men there, (along with the Beta Band and Talking Heads, but that's for a different review).

Yup, the song title says it all. To simply narrow down this band to the parameters of a surf band would be slanderous if not plain lazy. This Steve Albini recorded gem lays bare for our ears the heights to which a raw Guitar/Bass/Drums rock and roll combo can soar. Each instrument stakes it's claim without overpowering the others while at the same time dancing arm in figuritive arm with a kinda locomotive force hiding somewhere behind all the seemingly thoughtless nuggets. Rock and roll was always about making more of the whole than the sum of its parts and by God the Shadowy Men've cast a golden shadow made whole by the cross-section of masterful Guit/Bass/Drums interplay and solid, solid songwriting built upon a wild library of nuggets, hooks and tearjerkering riffs on this album. Cast off the "Kids in the Hall" pre-conceptions, turn down the lights, turn up the stereo and enjoy.

I love this band and all their albums. Very spring reverb-y, canadian surf, weirdo music.
