A Vancouver based punk/rock/garage band comprised of seasoned veterans who grew up during the original punk rock wave of the late 1970’s. Singer Tracy Brooks and drummer Scott Beadle played together in Vancouver band The Hip Type in the mid-to-late 1980s. Guitarist Tim Chan grew up in Victoria and was in cult faves 64 Funnycars; nowadays he fronts his own band China Syndrome as well.
CRASHING INTO THINGS
Art rock for the working class.
"You guys reminded me of Talking Heads AND Iron Maiden" -dude in Powell River
Their original Pop-Rock (heavy on the 'rock') draws on influences from the 80s New Wave and the 90s Alternative Sound but with a twist all their own. Lead Singer Lee and Drummer Amber's female voices deliver songs of heartbreak and hopefulness, while Steve and Kent (guitars and bass) provide a catchy and riffy sonic bed.
TOWER OF DUDES
Are about to release a new album and they have abandoned their folk-rock ways. The Tower of Dudes are a rock band... like Motorhead but even more rock and roll. Tower of Dudes are going to blow a new hole in the universe.
