This song was written on a dare, essentially...that I could write a song about Zinc. So I did. A track from the compilation CD 'Scratch' released in 2006, comprising of my favourite songs across my songwriting life between 1993 and 2006.

For my older 90s stuff, you can visit either of these pages:

Overgrown Spatulas: My first 'band,' more a 'screw around duo' made up of Roo and his high school bestie, Ryan McLarnon.


Brillohead: The first 'real' band I was in, originally an attempt to get a live act together to play Overgrown Spatulas songs...eventually realizing we were better writing 'legitimate' music as a team. Roo was singer and played bass (because we couldn't find a bassist), Ryan McLarnon was guitarist and also a singer, with the amazing Kevin Kindness on drums and Super Ben Pinkney on rhythm guitar.
