12:00 noon - 2 p.m.
Backroom Records & Pastries
5912 Rue St. Urbain
"Back Alley Entrance Only!"

Directions: If you go to the intersection of Bernard and St. Urbain, there's an alley right behind École Lambert-Closse on the north side of Bernard that's accessible from either St. Urbain or Waverly. Just follow that alley north towards Van Horne. We'll be the ones selling jerk pork above a garage. I'm sure there's a way of coming down the alley from Van Horne, too, but I've never come that way.

Come one, come all!


note: Backroom Records & Pastries will be open to satisfy your penchant for music & sweets from 12:00 noon till 6:00 p.m., i.e. normal hours.

I'd be there if I still lived in Montreal!

Unfortunately, where I live, you can't even buy jalapenos at the grocery store, much less scotch bonnets. So no jerk BBQ for me!

Can you tell me what the story is about the name "Super Ape"?

Does the name come from the Lee Scratch Perry Tune "Return of Super Ape" or did somebody use the name "Super Ape" before he did?

Hi Matthew,
Scotch bonnets can be a little hard to come by, even in Montreal. Hmm, I'm wondering what might make a good substitute. Probably not jalapenos, but maybe some other kind of chile.

Hi jamaica man,
as far as I know, Lee Perry was the one who coined it. I love his work during that era and I'm a big fan of the artwork he was using too.
