The Indie Music Archive

 Home | Got Content?



The premis of this site is to be an archive for indie music which is no longer available. Much of the content is from my personal collection of tapes and CDs from bands which no longer exist. Many are Canadian. Some aren't.

If you belonged to any of these bands and would like the content removed, please contact me directly at It is all being presented with the best of intentions and as a means of not letting this material fade away forever.

Maybe you will find something here you loved and never thought you'd hear again. Maybe you will discover something new. Think of it as Musical Archaelology. Just because it is not available, doesn't mean it isn't worth listening to.

If you have material to add to the site, email me and we'll see what we can do.

Between Feb 2006 and June 2008 David Bastedo posted 323 files to the Tragically Hip Facebook group and site. I found the files on the Hipbase Live Archive and organized them by release into one big file that can be downloaded here. Enjoy!
