Just to let everyone know, I lost my partner at the beginning of August, and I'm not sure when I'll be able to get back into this blog, whether it be new posts or reupping dead links. I will let you know when and if I am ready to come back to this blog, but for the moment it is unfortunately not a priority. Sorry.


If you wish to download an album off of this blog and the link is dead, please request it either in the comments or the Chat Box and I will reupload it as soon as possible. :)

And don't forget to follow the Isle on Facebook and Twitter!

One Ton - Abnormal Pleasures (2002)

One Ton was a group of three friends living in Quebec who decided to create a pop album that was something a little different. Make that A LOT different. The album is a hodge podge of almost every music style - pop, electro, latin, hip hop, rock, world, gospel, reggae, jazz - you name it. It is pulled together by the exotic voice of lovely singer Zita. It's an interesting listen, if a very challenging one at times. It is actually a lot like fellow Quebec group Bran Van 3000, though One Ton had a lot less success. The dancey single "Supersexworld" was a 'hit' in Canada, but the term 'hit' is used loosely as Canadian charts are plenty and not one in particular seems the authority, unlike Billboard in the US. The splashy video also got heavy rotation on Muchmusic. But the following single and video, "Another Miracle", didn't fare nearly as well, and the group disbanded soon after. The album was likely too all over the place to appeal to a mass audience. The producer, now known as Cristo, has recently resurfaced with experimental electronic music - see his Myspace page for more. (And please note, track 15, "Nothing", is just a needle running in a record groove, so there is nothing wrong with the file! LOL But it certainly is a good indication of how odd this group was...)

  1. Thanks for this. It's good, although I suspect I would have enjoyed it more if each song was about 20% shorter. But I've been known to say the same regarding Pink Floyd.
