“I was jamming with some good people but I wanted a full-time thing, and ended up getting in touch with Alex. We hit it off as friends and he invited me to his pad to listen to some old vinyl records and hang out. It was there that I met Marc.” They immediately recognized that they shared the same music tastes, and enjoyed jamming together. One night they listened to the classic John Lee Hooker-Canned Heat album Hooker N’ Heat, and were galvanized. “Later that week I came back to Alex’s with an amp,” Vos recalls. “The three of us set up some microphones in the living room and recorded ourselves running through some songs. We were listening to the playback and decided right then and there that we had to be a band.” After recording a few tunes, “we hunted down every email address we could and started mailing stuff out to everybody basically saying, ‘Hey! We just formed this band in our living room. Listen to this for five seconds.’ Out of those first recordings we got booked into the Montreal Jazz Festival and Harvest Festival in Canada, and got on our first tours.” They settled on the band’s name after discovering that The Record Company was somehow available. “We all agreed right away that it had to be the name,” says Vos. “Given the way we started, where we are from, and what we love to play, it makes perfect sense.” But making records notwithstanding, it’s playing live that sets this Record Company apart. “I always think of a performance as one less time on stage–not one more,” Vos concludes. “Nobody can say how many shows you get to play in your life. So we try to play our guts out, leave it all on the table, and have fun doing it.”
