Induced Labour

A sort of all star Toronto freak-punk band, the mighty Induced Labour was made of Leslie Predy (Doom Tickler), Jon Shapiro (Disguises, Almost Blue Sunshine), Mark McLean (Sick Lipstick, Black Cat 13, The Magic Cheezies), and Tim Fagan (Rattail, Germans). They blazed a trail of blood and vomit from Toronto to Montreal and back again before prematurely self-destructing in 2011.
Musically, they sounded like a group of shipwrecked survivors, with nothing to eat, but lots to smoke, crazed with hunger, stranded between Black Flag's bass-heavy toughness and Arab On Radar's psychotics.
Lost but not forgotten.
