Gordon Celesta (Dr. Applefritter) and TheOdore Stinks created this website. TheOdore did most of the content scavenging and design work, while Gordon did pretty much all of the tech work.
The site is a DIY affair. There is always something that needs fixing up...but we definitely welcome comments and corrections. The site would certainly be less than it is if it weren't for the offers/help/advice of others.

Special thanks goes to Elizabeth Fischer , who helped us get started. She introduced Gordon and I and suggested that we work together.
Finally, and most importantly, ART BERGMANN.
He was not involved in the making of this site. All the same, none of this would exist if it weren't for his remarkable songs, his great recordings, and his fiery, old testament performances.
We hope this site brings a renewed appreciation for Art's music, and for what he has given to the history of rock music in Canada - especially out here on the West Coast.
