Raymond Biesinger flow-charted history of Edmonton bands

Raymond Biesinger Chart (small)

The talented illustrator Raymond Biesinger has created a fascinating 16 lane chart that covers Edmonton’s (Alberta, Canada) music scene between 1956 through today in 2008. While I wasn’t much of a gig person while living in Edmonton, it’s really interesting to see how long bands lasted, merged and contracted over time. You can see the ever expanding chart at www.fifteen.ca/thechart. I’d also check out his normal site at www.fifteen.ca for work he’s done with Monocle, Fast Company, and Saturday‚Äôs Financial Times Weekend magazine…

    At Warwick Uni there's a painting on the outside of one of the lecture theatres that details the history, including some relationships with other bands, of Deep Purple that's pretty cool. Made queueing outside for lecture a bit less boring, so much detail to investigate.
