Besides: The Weakerthans - Table of Contents

The Weakerthans aren't a band with an extremely prolific body of work outside their main LPs. However, the b-sides that do exist aren't the easiest to track down either, so I thought they would be a great candidate for the blog . Tracks 10 to 15 are live studio recordings from CBC Radio 3 Sessions, with just John and his guitar solo. While there isn't a single song here that is an original Weakerthans song not on any of their LPs their re-arrangements of their own songs are truly interesting and their covers are top notch. Enjoy!:
