Kim Mitchell

Born in 1952 in Ontario, Canada, Kim Mitchell formed the band Max Webster in 1973. After splitting from the group, he became a solo artist, releasing his self-titled debut in 1982. The follow-up, Akimbo Alogo (1984), was his most successful album; featuring the single "Go for Soda," it went double platinum in Canada. Four albums followed: Shakin' like a Human Being (1986), Rockland (1989), I Am a Wild Party (1990) and Aural Fixations (1992). ~ John Bush, Rovi

Back in the mid 80's I came across a used max webster Lp (Live magnetic air) at a record convention for 2.00$. have been a fan of him ever since. Check out you tube for some live performances . Very talented guitar player and writer! he also has his own radio show in Canada I believe.

FIrst time I ever saw or heard of Kim was when his band (M.W.) opened up for Rush at a concert in Chicago YEARS ago. Battle Scar was always in the back of my head. Years later I was in Toronto on vacation and came across quite a few Kim Mitchell CD's in a record store. I bought one of each and returned back home quite happy. About that same time I was the owner of a touring PA and lighting company and started to play the Rockland CD at almost every Rock-n-roll show I was operating. LOVE IT!
I'm with Ray Jewhurst on this one. Here in New England, Max W. and Kim got virtually no airplay at all. I stumbled across them when "Live Magnetic Air" came out, in a record{!!!} shop in Kitchener Ont. when I was visiting relatives. I've been a fan ever since.
I had never heard of this guy before but go for a soda is my new favorite song to play

I never heard this guy before but I did see Max Webster at least four times when they opened for Rush. Too poppy for me.
Scot: If you want "Ain't Life Amazing," here's a good guy to e-mail your request to: mike@pandora . c o m He is a listener support manager for Pandora and has been super in forwarding my requests on to Pandora's music buyers. If you do e-mail him, can you also request Kim's "Shakin' Like a Human Being" album? I've already done so. It's a great LP.
Kim Mitchell is probably one of the most underrated Canadian singers of the 80's and 90's. Shoot, he is just plain underrated. With Pye DuBois penning most of songs, you just can't go wrong. BTW DuBois co-wrote Rush's songs Tom Sawyer and Between Sun and Moon.

Pandora...PL E A S E add "Ain't Life Amazin'" LP to your KM mix.
Pandora has some other albums by Kim in its inventory, but no samples have been analyzed, thus no songs are available from those LPs. One such album is Shakin' Like A Human Being. I know Pandora has them because there are links to them in Kim's bio above.
Another very Talented Canadian
So Kim is a dude?
What can i say about Kim, I love ya, I grew up with ya, singing "I am a wild party... rah rah ole!!"
Can fellow Kim fans join me in requesting that Pandora add his "Shakin' Like A Human Being" album. It's easy and effective -- just e-mail suggest-musi c @ p a n d o r a . c o m
I'm mysteriously hooked on Kim Mitchell's music, old and new. It's a wonderful, sometimes odd mixture of nice melody, strange and beautiful harmony and always strong, yet not over the top guitar work with some interesting sound effects intertwined. He is one of my favorite underground artists.

Kim is gret live performer what you hear on teh disc is what you hear in COncert. Heard him in london ontario several times.
Would be great to add Mitchell's "Shaking Like a Human Being" album.

Go for A SODA...Aweso m e . . . a l w a y s on my IPod...
I will always remember the hit in the 80's " Go for Soda ". for sure it is on my ipod - I like these artist who make great music and don't have all that up your tush fame - goes to the head to quick - and then it is more ego than talent.

I can't say what I like most about Kim Mitchell and, by extension, Max Webster. In fact, it's fair to say I like Max better. I like the strong guitar work, the off-the-wall lyrics and strong delivery. Nothing terrible subtle here. Good stuff.
