Loose Gravel is the grimy road story of Spooge – a punk band who get to know each other way more than they want to, cooped up in a crap-beaten van on their first tour. It’s about four people in a relationship that resembles a one-night-stand; everybody’s in it for the fun, there’s an unspoken hope of it becoming something more, it’s usually bitterly disappointing, and no one knows each other’s last names.
This is a peculiar odyssey of archetypical music scene types, lies and discovery, a thieving runaway, a coming-out story, and flaming chest hair… all underscored by a bizarre curse.

Ginny Fanthome has been part of the Canadian punk scene since the late 1980s, drumming for many punk and garage bands. She has also been a club DJ in Toronto and Ottawa, as well as a college radio DJ at CKCU FM in Ottawa, Ontario, where she hosted a general music show, and co-hosted a popular, yet very warped children’s show. Additionally, she was part of a music promoter collective who brought many punk and alternative music acts to a variety of Ottawa live music clubs in the late 1980s.
Ginny writes about people in music because there are so many interesting characters and a million crazy stories to tell.
