eq was the vancouver duo of “ease” and “quase,” (“E.Q.,” get it?). i first saw the video for “they can’t cope” on muchmusic’s rapcity when i was young, and i loved it, but i was never able to find the record. years later, when i met birdapres, i remember asking him about them. “ease” had just dropped a solo 12″ and bird and i were talking about it. he mentioned something about “he used to be in this group…” and when i heard it was EQ, well, shit, i freaked out and started rhyming the lyrics to “they can’t cope” to bird. he couldn’t believe i would a) have ever heard of the song outside of vancouver, and b) know the lyrics to it without having ever owned the record. a few years later, he gave me this 12″ as a gift. thanks bird. “equalizin’, mesmerizin’…”

(again, my girl is out-of-town with my camera, so i’ll have to post pics of the album cover when she gets back…)

    no comments on this one? wack. this is a dope record. it’s like the perfect 3-song single for that era… 1. the party song, 2. the “real life” song, and 3. the freestyle/lyrics song. people don’t sleep…

    Do you know how to contact either ease or quase from EQ?
    I have all the old EQ master tapes and demos….I would love to re connect with EQ.
    Thank you
