The outdated JUKEBOX app has been deleted. It is no longer supported in modern web browsers. I am currently looking for a new one in HTML 5. However, now each song's page with lryics, notes, chords, and history contains an embedded player so you don't have to download the song first to listen to it.
Enjoy the Vee Gates musical joy ride in the post-apocalyptic rock archive!

Pete Forrest on guitar & François Dubeau on the Rickenbacker bass (Montréal, Québec). Check that Marilyn Monroe motif on the guitar! These guys should get a life! lol
Chronological Recording History (1985-1988)
The 1985 London, Ontario "The Game is afoot" 3 song demo tape has just been converted from the original studio reel to reel (dated Feb. 26, 1985). This "off the floor" demo was engineered by Rob Nation at Emac Studios in London, Ontario. Many thanks goes out to David Cain of SoundMaster Studios of Ottawa Canada for artfully rescuing the original, almost 20-year old Ampex reel to reel on November 22, 2004.
