Biography

Half Baked Bio & Classified Information.

Français:

Half Baked est un groupe difficile a cerner. Une sorte de mélange de musique rock aux accents électroniques qui attire plusieurs genres musicaux dans son tourbillon inclassable. Frénétique, touche-a-tout et subversif, le trio formé de Yann Godbout (The Sound Of Sea Animals, Digit:Missile Command et autres) a la voix, basse et aux bidules électroniques, de Philippe Bilodeau (Man Machine, Sexyboy, Fanny Bloom) a la batterie et de Nicolas Bednarz (Psycho Riders, Le Nombre, Caféïne, Les Breastfeeders, Les Morts et plus) a la guitare, est reconnu pour ses performances survoltées.

Avec quatre albums en carrière, Half Baked a su se tailler une place de choix dans l'underground québécois. Héritiers bâtards de Groovy Aardvark et de Les Georges Leningrad, Half Baked dérange autant dans un petit bar de quartier que sur les planches de grandes salles comme le Métropolis. Qui a dit que le rock devait être convenu?

English:

Half Baked defies categorisation. They have been around for ten years now, and nobody seems to really know what they are about yet. Nowadays, the trio formed by Yann Godbout (voice, bass, electronics), Philippe "Pwell" Bilodeau (drums) and Nicolas "Nicotine" Bednarz (guitar) is blending every genre near the rock spectrum. Throughout the years, Half Baked has earned a strong reputation for their chaotic, hyperactive live shows.

Multi-genre, multi-langage, multi-tasking and always outside of the box. Half Baked is a dangerous band for those who think entertainment should be predictable. The band has shared the stage with bands like: Electric Six, Misteur Valaire, We Are Wolves, Think About Life, Alaclair Ensemble, You Say Party? We Say Die!, and many more.
