Big Sugar Review by Marshall Ward / Waterloo Chronicle

Making my guts shake and my eardrums quake, Big Sugar was one of my favourite bands throughout the '90s, with their heavy roots-rock-reggae sound and unbelievably loud three-hour marathon concerts.Having seen them live in concert more than 20 times, I remember with particular fondness their shows at the Volcano in Kitchener, with extended reggae versions of songs like I'm a Ram and It's All Over Now.By the end of the set, frontman Gordie Johnson and his jawdropping guitar playing had die-hard fans and newcomers alike in a sweat-soaked frenzy, tearing it up with their brash anthem Ride Like Hell.That's why I was thrilled to hear that, after a 10-year hiatus, Big Sugar is back with upcoming shows planned for St. Catharines on March 10 and Toronto on March 11. Their new album, Revolution Per Minute is soon to be released.
