Feeling a bit camera shy


What a difference a decade makes. Originally formed in 1995 as the punk-pop powerhouse "Less Than Useful", Aaron Bell, Brett Rock, Chad Everaert and Don Garant have re-emerged after a five-year hiatus to form "and then some". The boys all come from small towns in south-western Ontario, Canada, and have had the luxury of a "Nothing To Do" county up-bringing, spawning vivid imaginations. The band's latest venture is a 5 song E.P. with the working title "When All Else Fails". The first single, "Nothing", received an honorable mention by the judges of VH1's Song of the Year competition for the May 2005 entries. (See 'Press' page for VH1 review)

In their time together as L.T.U. the boys supported the likes of: The Super Friendz (Murderecords), Al Tuck and No Action (Murderecords), The New Grand (Sonic Unyon), MAdE (MCA/Universal), Pluto(Virgin), treble charger (BMG), Rusty (Handsome boy) 54-40 (Columbia), Thrush Hermit (Murderecords), Odds(WEA). "Nothing to Do", the bands first release, a tape only venture, was a self-produced project with the help of Kingsville based "Stonehedge Productions". The success of "Nothing to Do" spawned the lad's to record their debut CD "First Time Round". The disc was recorded in a five-day July session at Toronto?s indie mecca "Signal to Noise", under the watchful eye of Rob Sanzo (treble charger, Radioblaster, Voivod). "First Time Round" has sold over 1500 copies, without a distribution deal, since its 1997 release. The disc's single "Shut Up" was well received by college radio charting high in Windsor, Waterloo, Ottawa and Winnipeg.

Each member of the band has different musical influences which combine to make a unique and fresh sound that bridges the gap between many genres, and won't fade with passing fads. These influences range from the standard Beatles, Rush, Zeppelin type to Chopin, Hank Williams, Bobby Darin, and even Raffi. "and then some" takes ideas from every direction and applies them to their own sound and style. The band understands that greatness comes from being humble, observant, persistent and patient.
