Few punk bands have remained in business for as long as the veteran Canadian trio, Dayglo Abortions, has. Since 1979, the band (in one configuration or another) has been offering up no-holds barred punk rock, as well as some truly over-the-top (and unforgettable) album cover artwork/images.
Random Killing is a Toronto, Montreal and Oshawa-based veteran Canadian punk rock band established in 1984. The group of childhood friends initially got together to jam some of their favourite punk rock music, just for a shits and giggles. The fun turned infectious, the jams continued and before long they had written their own songs, played their first shows, played on live television, recorded Take Our Flag (1985), a 7" EP and made their first video of the title track. Their video aired on Rogers Cable, CityTV news, Much Music and won a cash prize at Trinity Square Video.
Motorama’s singles demonstrate a more melodic and ghostly sound than Joy Division’s dark and fast-paced punk. The situation changed with the release of the group's first LP, Alps. This album featured intonations of New Wave and Indie pop, and the music in general became more bright and melancholic than depressive. The band is influenced by Soviet post-punk bands like Kino and Zvuki Mu, as well as ethereal wave.
