"Band Watch: GOOD CONDUCT"

Fronting a quaint lo-fi quality to their home recording releases, boy-girl guitar/drums rock-and-roll duo GOOD CONDUCT have quickly established themselves over the past few months as a consistent lineup addition across the board at some of Toronto’s keystone rock venues: Rancho Relaxo, The Magpie, The Silver Dollar, Clinton’s Tavern, The Garrison, and of course The Annex Live (with iM).

The two-piece released their debut Demos LP back in May 2012 and a number of the tracks harken back to some early material by THE WHO – single Talk Talk Talk and tracks In My Head, and Oh Baby, I Don’t Wanna Fight in particular. Part of the fun of GOOD CONDUCT, isn’t so much that Adam and Lee trade off vocal lines from song-to-song, but also that they swap instruments as well, making for some interesting stage dynamics and banter as they scramble back-and-forth throughout the live set.

GOOD CONDUCT are set to return to The Annex Live alongside a killer lineup with iM on Dec. 14th, so stay tuned. In the meantime, check out their demos LP in the embed below, or snag yourself a FREE DOWNLOAD copy over on Bandcamp. - THE iNDiE MACHiNE


Demos (May 2012)



Like sequined pants and a plaid shirt, Good Conduct’s a perfect mismatch: a guitar/drum duo, trading instruments as they go, singing he-said-she-said stories spurred on by one-upmanship and backstage games of rock-paper-scissors to decide who throws the first volley each night.

Lee Fever and Adam Neil are based in Toronto and had always planned to start a band together but found it difficult to find other members who shared their vision of scrappy, scratch-and-bleed pop songs. Also, having one righty and one lefty made it impossible to share instruments. The solution was surprising: no third member, and, Adam would relearn the drums with a lefty setup. (Lee would learn the drums, period.) Good Conduct played their first show a few months later, and never looked back.

Musically, the pair swears they are the bastard children of Patti Smith and Tom Petty. The live show proclaims a love for fuzz, reverb, and hard cymbal crashes. The songs broadcast broken hearts, bitter rejection, a love of drinking, and, occasionally, outright violence.
