In the 70s, musicians used to record backing tracks for TV and commercial productions. Parry Mood Music was – and still is – a company that recorded these types of tracks in Canada. For a while, I used to ask every production house in the city if they had any kicking around. Why? Well, because I’m a giant dork with nothing else to do. But also because they sound like this. Take a listen to this proto-hip-hop track recorded right here in Canada back in 1977.

This week’s Frandoms are by Matt Antonello, group creative director, Saatchi & Saatchi Canada.
