Spazmz were formed in Toronto, Canada in January 1995 from the ashes of the Ethyl Mormons.
While playing around Toronto and Montreal for the past few years we released a demo tape entitled
'Bernice Wuz Here' in November 1995, and in January 1997, (completely on our own) we released our first
7" EP. RealAudio samples are available below. MAXIMUMROCKNROLL called us 'snotty-attitude..Definite '77-'79...',
and 'feisty...good stuff!'. Check out Slug and Lettuce #52 (Jan. 1998) and MRR #167 for reviews (shown below).
Our next release, the 'NUCLEAR' CD was released July 25 '98, RealAudio and MP3 samples are available below. Check out
MAXIMUMROCKNROLL, SLUG AND LETTUCE(also shown below), PUNK PLANET, PROFANE EXISTENCE, EXCLAIM!, etc for reviews.
If anybody is interested in helping us distribute it drop me a note at
WOUNDED PAW. Spazmz are also included on the MeatHead Records Canadian
compilation Underground Vol. III
and on the compilation '47 Canadian HC Bands' from Fans of Bad Productions (Fuck The Commonwealth).|
Dana Sixty and Preston(Wounded Paw) have played together since 1992 when NINA HAGEN DAAZ (spelling??) started. At the band's demise, every Spazm at one point or other, became a member of the ETHYL MORMONS. Dana Sixty had previously played with Ottawa band BOOMSHANKA, but they didn't hold that against her. Karen was one of the two vocalists in the ETHYL MORMONS and pretty much responsible for giving that old classic 50's tune, 'ANGEL BABY' the vocal kick in the butt it deserved. Roddy has also played in a number of bands, including Toronto's REPEATOFFENDER. Before their demise in 1996, Preston played briefly in ULCER of Toronto. Both Roddy and Preston also currently play in SPOTTY BOTTY
Karen has left the city, the country and the band to go to California to get her Masters Degree in Fine Arts at Cal Arts so I guess the Spazmz are on permanent hiatus (as of '98).
