It seemed every twink and his last three boyfriends were jammed into fly for Grapefruit. Performing were Señor Kasio (with fake blood streaming from his nose) and Sheena (her left arm in a pink cast). They performed three ditties, including a frisky song with lyrics "I want to be unloved, untouched, unkissed" – perfect for Pride. Rating 4.5/5 - Fab Magazine, Toronto (CA)


I hope everyone has had a chance to play Senor Kasio's "Big Fake Turkey". Just Like the cover art suggests, it shows G.W. in his 'flight suit' presenting a large turkey (this of course was when he visited the troops for T-day 2003). Since Señor Kasio is Canadian, he is able to write a song satirizing this event and inflict his thoughts on it. It seems like American artists don't have the freedom to do this any more... - WCNI Radio, Connecticut (USA)


In the same tradition as 2 Live Crew’s “Me So Horny,” which made the rounds some 14 years earlier, “I Wanna F--k” is destined to become a club hit, perhaps most popular late in the evening when boys and girls are heading to their cars - Out Smart Magazine, Houston (USA)


The track itself sounds a little like Electric Six meeting Right Said Fred in the Gay Bar. It is destined to be a floor filler, because when you're losing it on the dance floor you don't really want to think about structure and intellectual nuances. - music OMH (UK)

Bio

Though officially formed in Toronto in June of 2004, Señor Kasio’s true birth took place three years later in Dublin, Ireland. Within days of their departure to the Irish capital, Steve Diguer, the group’s singer and composer, received emails stating that 4 out of their 5 gigs were cancelled. The remaining show, an outdoor concert at Dublin Pride before about 10,000 people, was scaled back to 3 songs.

Unable to face his guitarist and longtime soul mate Alex Brûlé with the bad news, Steve enlisted some contacts in Dublin to help him out. Upon arrival, it still looked as though all that time, money, and hard work would result in a 3 song show.

Then the phone started to ring. Three extra performances to full houses in 3 separate venues. The crowning moment: a packed house at Dublin’s famous Temple Bar Music Centre, a stage graced by acts like U2, the Cranberries, and Sinead O’Connor.

Flashback to Toronto, 2004 and the original birth of Señor Kasio. Out of the ashes of Steve’s original music project, a disco party band called Brother Love Canal, came the insanely addictive single “I Wanna F***” (I.W.F.). Released in the U.K. through Ark Records, “I Wanna F***” can be accurately summed up as a glorious three-minute hook of a pop song, and as a result of its sheer irresistibility, was featured in clubs across North America, Australia, and Europe. Since then, over 50,000 fans have downloaded the track from Ark’s interactive website.

Now it’s 2010. Steve and Alex along with drummer Dan Neill are back in studio to record their new singles “No Snow (More S***)” and “Toronto” (Ironically, the biggest crowd pleaser in Dublin). They are planning a summer tour, but this time closer to home. Not because they didn’t love their fans in Europe. But because some over-zealous fans at the outdoor concert in Dublin jumped on stage and accidentally unplugged Steve’s synths halfway through the third song, ending the show early.
