New FPT Writer -- Jay Harris

Welcome to my good friend Jay Harris who is living way up there in Ontario, Canada as the newest writer for Fake Plastic Tunes. Jay said he would be willing to write on the blog when ever he has some spare time. He just made his first post 'We Are Augustines - Book of James' which you should check out - Also look for some more posts from him in the near future.

We are long time high school friends and grew up together going to concerts in the Toronto area. Some of the memorable shows I remember are going to see Coldplay just after Parachutes was released and being in the front row of a modest crowd of about 2000 fans. Also I remember seeing The Verve right before the band split up which was incredible as well.

I will be adding a section on the 'About Me' Page for Jay to put a little snippet of himself with his contact info as well. But in the mean time look for 1 or 2 posts a week from him. Thanks for the contribution there Jay, looking forward to some more quality posts and hearing about your music expertize.

Thanks Jay for Helping out

  1. Thanks for the intro man. Looking forward to contributing to the growing site. Pretty tough to surprise you with anything, but we'll combine resources and see where this goes.

    BTW, That Coldplay show was their first in Canada and tickets were a whopping $15.00
    (Toronto was the first city they really broke in North America they claimed)

    I also recall a very small show for the now low-key Ed Harcourt at a Toronto Jazz Club for about $20. Strange, cause it was mostly music industry folks there. Ron Sexsmith was in the back somewhere too.

    Anyways, those are good memories.
