Biography

From Halifax, Nova Scotia, Quivers have in their brief lifespan played alongside such varied acts as Sloan, Boxer the Horse, The Grown-Ups, Long Long Long, Duzheknew, BA Johnston, Dog Day and many more.

Halifax dudes who also play(ed) in Friendly Dimension, Gideons, Cold Warps, Sweet Tenders, Envision, and on and on, whose first show was broadcast on their campus radio station CKDU. Andrew Neville decided to play tambourine at a show somewhere down the line and never left.

Quivers are interested in creating scenes of absurdity, violence, and pathos. Embracing Artaud's Theatre of Cruelty, Quivers wants to engage the audience and replace ennui with entertainment.

Comparisons have been made to The Oh Sees, The Yardbirds, Television, New York Dolls, Stooges, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Dinosaur Jr, and so on. Do what you want with that.
