Where Are They Now ? was the debut album for Trout Fishing in Quebec
( previously they had relesased a self titled EP ). The eclectic 17
track CD contains a number of Trout classics dispersed among songs
which have gone on to relative obscurity.
The pick of the album is Extra Ball Is Lit. It's a great insight into
what Trout Fishing in Quebec are all about: a big funky complex sound
sandwiching solo bursts of guitar, percussion, flute and sax. Here's
to Micheal Holding, Here's to Larry Gomes is a track likely to get an
airing at most Trout gigs, as is Ooh La La, which has been remixed as
a single in a couple of incarnations.

The second CD, Pissing Into the Wind, is the better of the two albums.
While retaining their trademark complex big grooves* , the CD seems to
have great depth and mood*.
From the brooding sounds of Dance Fucken Naked to the upbeat tones of
Fat's Chance, the album goes thru a miasma of noises and tones. Among
the many highlights are the opening Phantom Draft and the sensational
pisstake Baby I love You, But I've got to Play Pinball.
