News Roundup (Remembering Rick Bissell, Timid the Brave, Arkells, More)

Former Simply Saucer Manager Rick Bissell Passes


Facebook comments from Edgar Breau (Simply Saucer)
Rick was the 'discoverer' of Simply Saucer in 1974, our first manager. He set up the Master Sound studio sessions with the Lanois Brothers that ultimately became side one of Cyborgs Revisited. Husband of his beloved and beautiful Monique, father of Shawn.
Originally from Montreal, Rick came to Hamilton and set up one of the first import record stores here, Hermandad Records in the Lister Block in the early 1970's. Some of you record collectors out there will remember the cool imports you could buy at the store. He was a communications consultant for Bell and AT&T, brought his family with him to Saudia Arabia for a time where he did consulting work there. 
Well there's much more to tell about our friend but tonight's the time to mourn the passing of our cherished friend, Rick. May he rest in peace.
