...from the other side of Vancouver

This is an Art Bergmann fan site. 

We hope this site will help people (re)discover Art's work and develop a real appreciation for what he has given to the history of rock music in Canada, especially out here on the West Coast. 

Art is now living on a farm outside of Calgary with his wife - and has not been involved in the making of this site in any way. That said, we are in touch with them. They do know what we have been up to.

This site is entirely a DIY effort that has no commercial angle whatsoever. We appreciate whatever feedback you care to offer. (See "contact" in the menu.)


“Blood from needles, phonograph and otherwise, drip from
each primal and poetic track. No sweet songs for sale, these are Bergmann's tales of darkness culled from our deepest desires and dreams, bruised by life but still raging against the dying of the light. Since the late 1970s, his has been a gloriously gritty rock, the hissing cousin of Westerberg and Iggy, the soul shadow beside Neil and Cohen, a whirlpool of songs threatening to pull you under as they baptize. Not for safety seekers or those Bound For Vegas. For those who cling to rock so as not to sink into the depths. Art is salvation in a godless world.”
