Interview with Mississauga.com on the latest Troubs release
The latest album by Mississauga band The Troubs started off as a challenge between the band’s two members, Rik Emmett and Dave Dunlop.The two were kicking around ideas to help flesh out their set list and were considering what cover songs they’d like to perform live. Talk quickly turned to what songs would be interesting to play, considering the band is essentially just two men and two acoustic guitars.
