For years I’ve avoided saying aloud the name of this band, shared by (or maybe taken from?) W. Somerset Maugham, author of The Razor’s Edge and Of Human Bondage and a bunch of other novels. Is it Mawm, like lawn but with an m? Or Mao-ham, two syllables? I assume the gh is silent… Anyway, these silly Canadians are causing me this trouble again, even worse than before, because I want to tell way more people about their wonderful homage-to-the-’70s lo-fi sound than I ever wanted to about W. Somerset’s psychologically searing social dramas. Check out “Jay Bird” for a catchy end-of-summer theme song.
