After a phenomenal debut record (via Vancouver, BC's Mint Records) which saw Cub reach the top 10 of Canada's college radio charts, the trio of Robynn Iwata, Neko Case and Lisa Marr found themselves further capturing the hearts of music fans nationwide during their first cross-country tour, including a stop in Montreal to record for the ground-breaking CBC radio show Brave New Waves (May, 1993). This is the first-ever official release of the band's incredible session.
Of this tour Neko Case later said, “I went on tour as a fill- in drummer for Cub, and I was hooked. Touring and playing live shows was the life for me.”

Brave New Waves was a Canadian radio program which aired on CBC Stereo, later known as CBC Radio 2, from 1984 to 2007. Airing overnight five nights a week, the show profiled alternative and independent music and culture, including film, comics, literature and art. The show was once described by longtime host Brent Bambury as "explaining fringe culture to a comfortable mainstream audience," and by his successor Patti Schmidt as "invented with an idea of what John Peel's show was, but without ever having heard it."
