Hello Fergus,
I'm the A.D. at The Forest Festival and am doing blurbs for the website. I'm interested in the derivation (spelling, I guess) of the band's name. Can you help? Best, Stu

Hello Fergus, Long time no speak but really like your new trio.
AS you may know, I'm having serious medical problems and some folks have organised a benefit for me at the Horseshoe, Mar.28.
Would you be available on that date to drop by and play a tune or two?
All the best

A long overdue hello to you. Tony Q. mentioned he met you sometime last year, so I asked him to give you my co-ordinates.
Loved your tunes over the years, as well as your latest.
If you're in touch with Bembo, please give him my regards (and email address). Would love to shoot the shit if you have the time and inclination; if not, then stay well and prosperous.

Hello Fergus:
Great show at the R.T.Hall the other night. Lots of energy,great cover version representation. Please tell me:
What make of electric sitar was that anyway???
What make of guitar effects pedal was being used by Rik?
Was it a VOX?
When I heard the eerie seagulls - was that from "Love"-
I thought "Rain" was about to fall.
Thank you.

Hi Fergus,
Nice to see the article, and to catch up on you a bit, in the Star this weekend.
And good to find your site here.. and so many of your songs... and to see E. Gamble and E. Canning credits. Was trying to remember where on Ward's you lived. Thank you for the memories that remain, regardless. For example the posters for the Soaper's Ball... "Music so hot and dirty you have to bring your own soap"... IT'S GREAT TO SEE YOU'RE STILL ROCKING ON. Will try to get to your Beatles Show next month. Break a leg!
All the best to you and yours,
Peter Holt

Are you related to Jack[John] Hambleton late of Scarborough?

Jack was an author and I dated his daughter Jessie in the early 50's while we were both taking flying lessons at Toronto Island Airport. I would like to get in touch with her or find the whereabouts of Jessie who joined the RCAF in the early 50's and married a chap named I believe 'Deslaurier' or similar.

Thanking you in advance

I have finally found it! "The same old feeling" was one of my favs from the early 70's, it got a bit of radio play here in Canada and haven't heard it since. I tried finding it as music download but no luck. I would be interested to purchase a CD with that song on it if possible. Is it available? Thanks for the memories! GREAT SONG!!!!

Hey Fergus,

Been a while, I know. Sorry. But during the 40 years you've doing your thing in music, I've been doing my think in science. Funny how the forks in the road work. I have been following your career from time to time but now that I've got only one year until retirement, I thought I should let you know that NOT only am I still alive,
I've been going down your road for the past 5 years as a hobby and once next year comes, I'll be doing it full time. I'm pals with a lot of the people you know including Kevin Breit and Dave Clark. If you want to see where I've been check out or Kid Coma on CBC radio3.

Hope all is well. I suspect we've both had quite a ride since high school.

Great to see you at Val Ross' memoprial. It was "All Over The Wotld" that floored my little one in the car a couple of montsh ago. Stupid me, it wasn't until ten minutes ago I figured out in a blinding flash why you spell it "Sattalites" As they say, Satta is the national rhythm of Jamaica. I am glad you're well, and I will keep an eye on your sked and show up at oe or another gig soon.

First of all: Happy New Year!!

Good to see that you are online! Now I can keep up to date with what's going on in your life.

I will be in Toronto at the beginning of March for two weeks. I hope I will get to see one of your shows. Take care, Laura (former Trebas student ... currently residing in Switzerland)

Hey Fergus I've been a loyal Sattalite fan since the Bamboo days. Amazing talent , you guys always put on a fantastic show , love the Tuesday night show at Orbit

September 30, 2007

hello Fergus! Great to see you online with a groovy webpage :) I was first exposed to your music from an album on birchmount called "Suzanne" which I found 6 years ago looks like you and your brother contributed on it. And then I have traced as much output as I can to this point with LP's i have scrounged up from various sources. Do you have a complete discography of material? I seem to bump into your and Greg's material all the time and I seem to have an affinity to your late 60's early 70's output. Let me know if you have an email i can chat with you at, I would love to know more about some records i have, as I love them all. Thanks for your great output over the years.

Hello, I went to a lot of Sattalites concerts, so you might recognize me if you saw me. I'm a longtime fan and friend of your cohort Neil Chapman, and I'm currently in the process of writing a biography of him (authorized, of course!). I'm wondering if you might be willing to e-mail me a few words (as much or as little as you want) about him as a musician for inclusion in my book. Naturally I'd be sure to credit you. Thank you, and best wishes on your own projects.


May 23, 2007

Hey Fergus,
It's Lauren from Tuesdays. I just came across your web site and my dreams have come true! Dylan and Marley switcheroo? Fantastic.
I couldn't find the link to Just Like A Woman, but I hope to make it on the 2nd to hear it then.
You guys are so great and your music always makes my day.
Thank you,

Dear Fergus,

We have just recently come to know of you through the playing of "Mirrors" on Foxy Radio. We asked one of the staff to track down the name of the song and that of the artist. A quick Google later and here we are. As much as we love the song "Mirrors", we are having trouble figuring out one line of the lyrics. Would you be please able to help? In the latter part of the song is a line something like: "We walked along the docks tonight and took the breathless air." How close did we get?

We were pleased to hear that you are performing regularly in Toronto. Perhaps we'll be able to attend one of your performances when we can free up some time from some pressing family care issues.

Thanks in advance for your help.

We look forward to hearing more of your music on your cd's. Your talent and performance on "Mirrors" is very pleasant and uplifting at stressful times.

Hey Fergus;


I gave Tony the Drastic Measures Masters and he busted his ass to transfer them to digital.

Pete Rae

Ferg, remember me?
hint: crack ho's rap song for songwriting class, 2001/02.
I'm currently program manager at CFRC 101.9 FM Queens University radio station. I've just picked up a morning show for the summer and I'm doing a reggae format. I played some Sattalites stuff and it inspired me to send ya a holler.
Hope everything is grand in your neck of the woods and if you'd ever be interested in doing an interview or sending any material I'd definitely spin in on my show.

Thanks Ferg,

stay regular,

Hey Fergus! Greetings from a long time Sattalites band from the Buffalo, NY area. Great to find this site, even better to listen to a song from "Live Via Sattalites!" 2 questions...when are The Sattalites playing Buffalo again??? Also, is the entire Live Via CD available anywhere, or even as downloads? Keep up the great work, hope to catch you guys again sometime!



April 8, 2006
