Canada has been the home base of musicians as diverse as Shania Twain, Barenaked Ladies, Robert Goulet and The Guess Who, but there's one thing that Canada doesn't have anymore -- a factory to press vinyl records. According to cool Toronto blog blogTO, the last vinyl factory in Canada recently shut down. For triva buffs, the last vinyl record produced in Canada was the single "Flesh Python" by Toronto-based electronic pop/alternative band vitaminsforyou.
"It is true that the vinyl factory is closing due to the retirement of our master pressman and plant manager", confirmed Aaron Zon, Vice President of Music Manufacturing Services (MMS). "We are indeed the last Canadian plant standing (that I'm aware of anyway)."Do you have a favorite Canadian performer? A favorite Canadian album? Please, no Celine Dion or Bryan Adams posts!
