Tom Duggan As tender and sublime as No Safe Home, as catchy and hilarious as The Price, the latest from Mr. Wax is the record this world needs in 2018. Desperately prescient "People Can Change," the objectively necessary white humility of "someone fixed the game for me", and the inarguable accuracy of "Basketball." Always hard to pick a favorite, as these albums make me want to laugh and cry at once... Very rare! Favorite track: Scold's Bridle.

Wax Mannequin Hamilton, Ontario

Adeney's music veers from scrappy prog oddness and distressed folk to absurdist stadium metal, all with a drunk, dark humour that borders on outright Dadaism.

He has appeared on thousands of pub, gallery and festival stages worldwide.
