Jale. Halifax's finest. If the rest of those mid-90s indie bands from the Great White North were mounties, Jale was Dudley Do-Right. A short-lived career, but some solid music packed between 1992 and 1997. I was fortunate enough to see them play exactly once. I managed to talk two of my friends into driving me the 3 1/2 hours to Buffalo, NY, back in April of 1996, shortly before the release of the "So Wound" album. We got to see Jale along with about 11 other people in a room that looked like someone's den...a den which, of course, happened to be attached to a big bar.
