British Columbia Talent--CD Review: Rebel Heart -Yuk Fu, Classic Rock Music From Courtenay, BC!

Band Members
Ian Goodship
Jimmy Dupuis 
Charlie Aiken
Josh Fulford
Henry Grierson


Courtenay, BC

Back in February, I made a New Music Release video on YouTube and this band commented on the video asking "How do we get you our songs for review - tnx"

I then contacted them and after a few emails, they sent me their music!

I have had a few short email chats with Charlie from the band. We discussed the members of the band as I noticed one was missing, Charlie wrote back.
"Yes we were a 4pc – I use to play keys for some of the songs but I also play rhythm guitar and lead vocals – so we decided to add a keyboard player."
"We will be getting new photos done shortly with the 5 of us."
That person is 
Henry Grierson
I feel that if Steve Earle met Tom Petty and wrote some songs together, then if they had this band sing the songs --this would give you an idea of how they sound! That is at least for their first song on the album "Self Made Man".

Here is the MP3 video for the song.

I really like their sound through all the songs on this album. The title song is really catchy too, good rhythm, groove, vocals, and a  great bassline all of it, drums too being a drummer myself I find myself tapping my fingers and feet to the beats.

Here is a live song that they posted Dec 2018 on YouTube.

Another question that I had for Charlie was if they have some new music they are working on and any tour plans for the summer.

"Yes, we have been working on recording for our 2nd CD with producer Paul Laine and engineer Ron Obvious. We have several festivals booked that we will be playing this summer."

So they may be walking away in the picture, but they are far from being done anytime soon by the sounds of things that Charlie told me.
I leave you now with my personal favorite song off the album.
"Light The Fire"

'Bed Of The Dead' Available Now On Black Fawn Distributions VOD & iTunes. Blu-Ray & DVD June 18, 2019

'Bite' was one of the most creative films that I saw in the past few years. I was able to review it when it played at The Blood In The Snow Canadian Film Festival in Toronto.
So when I was sent this press release for the newest film from the creators, I was excited!

This has a great tagline for the film as well.
"You made your bed, now die in it!"

This does not seem to have the typical storyline that we have regenerated for us these days, which is also refreshing.
Bed of the Dead follows two young couples who visit the city’s oldest singles club for some late night fun. They soon find themselves stuck on a haunted antique bed where leaving leads to a bloody end. While plagued by frightening hallucinations, the group must figure out the bed’s secrets before they’re gruesomely picked off one by one. You made your bed, now die in it!

Below is from the press release:

Expanding on the haunted furniture sub-genre, Bed of the Dead will receive the Black Fawn Distribution collector’s edition treatment with a physical release slated for Tuesday, June 18, 2019. The collector’s edition will be presented as a 2 disc Blu-ray/DVD combo pack and will feature an exclusive slipcase, a documentary on the making of Death Bed: The Bed that Eats (the 70s cult classic and the only other film to feature a killer bed), a music box player featuring previously unreleased songs from composer Steph Copeland, and more.

“Bed of the Dead has seen a long journey from its conception to its release but, we couldn’t be more proud to have finally fully acquired this title,” states Black Fawn Distribution’s Operations Manager Chris Benn. “Horror fans have waited long enough for this film to be released and we wanted to get it into their hands as quickly as possible. It’s simply a great addition to any collection.”
“It took a few years but, finally this weird little flick we made is available for your viewing pleasure,” states director Jeff Maher. “Horror fans should enjoy the buckets of blood as much as the cast disliked being covered in them.”
Filmed in Hamilton, Ontario, Bed of the Dead sold out its world premiere at Fantasia International Film Festival (Canada) going on to screen at such film festivals as Sitges (Spain), Fright Fest (England), Berlin Fantasy Fest (Germany), Toronto After Dark (Canada) and Other World’s
Film Festival (USA).

The film is the directorial debut of Jeff Maher (Director of Photography for The Heretics, Let Her Out, Bite) and stars Colin Price (The
Heretics, Murdoch Mysteries), Alyssa King (Slasher, Berkshire County), Gwenlyn Cumyn (Barbelle, Chasing Valentine), Dennis Andres (TV’s
Workin’ Moms, Killjoys) and George Krissa (Blood and Fury). The film features another hauntingly beautiful score by Steph Copeland (The
Heretics, Let Her Out, The Drownsman) and was produced by Cody Calahan, Chad Archibald, Christopher Giroux, and Jeff Maher.
“This is our fifth special edition Blu-ray that we’ve released under the Black Fawn Distribution banner,” explains General Manager Chad
Archibald. “Jeff Maher shot a gorgeously dark film and Bed of the Dead deserves to be seen in the best quality possible. This is also the only
version of the film that will have these special features attached to it so, it’s a must-have for horror collectors.”

The Blu-ray/DVD will be available on its own or as part of a limited edition “Blacklist” package which will feature a signed copy of the film
and a variety of exclusive collectibles. Pre-orders for the film can be placed through the following link: 

The trailer also leaves enough suspense of what lies ahead when they see the film, less is often more.
So many trailers share too much of the film.
