ELECTRONIC: Industrial, ROCK: Modern Rock
A very early interest in rock, metal & punk followed by post-punk, alternative, indie, industrial, electronica & noise fueled the vision of what a band could & should sound like.
After playing guitar & singing in numerous rock/industrial bands, sharing gigs with bands like Kittens & Fishbone, he bought a sampler, synth & an old Mac & moved from London, Ontario to the west coast, settling in Victoria. It was there where he began to use the new tools & began writing songs that were based on samples, synths & beats rather than relying only on guitars.
In 2000 he moved to Los Angeles, where most of the songs on the self-titled Ep were written. The equipment got upgraded & hard disk recording of the self-titled EP began. It was released in February 2006, an output of filth, fury & the sonic equivalent of spit in the face.
