All Music Guide:
Best known as a guitarist for Vancouver's indie rock supergroup the New Pornographers (he joined in 2002 and played on their 2003 record, Electric Version), Todd Fancey was also a member of Limblifter and played bass on their 2000 release, Bellaclava. Hailing originally from Nova Scotia, Fancey was in many bands before joining Limblifter, including Macabre, Sunshower, Virgin Lust, Jack Tripper, and Taste of Joy. In 2004, he released his solo project under the name Fancey for March Records. Drawing on his love of '70's AM pop and bands like the Association, Sagittarius, and Stereolab, and with help from friends Kurt Dahle and Sara Lapsley, the record was an auspicious debut.
