Published Jun 28, 2019The wild lives of Toronto raccoons have been well-documented by naturalists and bands alike, and their latest foray into big city life apparently involves picking up some sweet new spins from Kops Records.
On Instagram yesterday (June 27), Kelly Robson shared a video of a young bandit out for a dig, eyeing up a copy of Willie Nelson's Ride Me Back Home in the front window of Kops' downtown location on Queen Street. "It's not just you," the store wrote in sharing the video. "Even raccoons like to KOP a good album."
Commenters replied that it might have been looking for Garbage, while another suggested it was Rocket Raccoon in search of a Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack. In any case, the raccoon passed up taking home Willie's latest and hopped below the bins to flip in peace.
Nelson's Ride Me Back Home arrived last week through Legacy Recordings. He's also set to bring his Outlaw Music Festival to Toronto later this year.
