The West End Phoenix, an actual independent community newspaper distributed through the west end (duh) of Toronto features musician and writer Dave Bidini high on the masthead. You’d also except the former head of the Rheostatics to maintain an interest in music, right?
The December music issue of The Phoenix is coming up December 22. The publication got together with Beau’s Beer to have a special blue flexi-disc that will come with the pages of that edition.
The flexi–pressed in the Czech Republic–features members of Rush, Rheostatics, Whitehorse, Michie Mee, Leo Rautins, Serena Ryder, Paul Linklater, and more. It will be available with a subscription to the newspaper that will be delivered or mailed anywhere in the world.
A future Rush collectible? Probably.
