Biography

Kenny MacLean started writing songs in his parents' spare bedroom after growing increasingly discontented with being a full time cook. Though he was already receiving really positive feedback from his parents and their friends, MacLean decided it was time to showcase his songs beyond the family living room. He started going to open mics, where he played for crowds of five people who didn't give a shit about him. It was during this time that he connected with fellow former Hinton personality Jed Gauthier. He convinced Gauthier to play guitar and some cello, the latter of which was used purely to pick up chicks - a ploy that cemented Jed's place as the band's resident sex symbol. Though it seemed odd that prog-rock god and rabid Rush fan Gauthier would join forces with MacLean, a Thanksgiving open mic in Hinton convinced the two that they had stumbled on something special. Shortly afterward, Chad Stewart - a fellow Hintonite and ginger - began playing piano in the band, which may have started out as a joke. Whatever it was it worked. And so the three began work on some songs, though they were already pretty much rock stars in their own minds long ago. For a while they lived the lifestyle more then they actually played music. Time line one month ahead: The three were out at a show when they ran into their preferred ginger, also hailing from Hinton, Ms. Lorette Mercier. Everybody wondered and still does why this beautiful girl sings with these three idiots. Some things can never be solved. After much dismay and chaos, the four of them finally found a drummer: Lorette's lover and Blame-It's guitar player, Crispy Blame-It. Crispy in turn brought in former Pind bassist, Matt Chipchar, who incidentally is in direct competition with MacLean for who has more feminine-like qualities. Through a series of ads, they were finally connected with the lovely Amity Mitchell, who joined the band for their first EP, playing flute and sax. The band released their first album, The James EP, at their epic one-year anniversary show, Murderversary. The band is currently working on new material. One tear a time.

Lyrics

Peter Patrick

Written By: Kenny MacLEan

Peter patrick appeared high then low
peterpatrick seemed to have control
he once had lived, now he's among the dead.
hear to save us from the war in our head.
Pete was something to be reconed with, if someone had told me girl i d a never left.
So i sing oh hell is coming, if i would a known sooner maybe i'd never left you with him.
Oh he dont want to, but his hands are on your throat, and there down your spine he done got you.

Peterpatrick i know was his name, to blugen us to death was his game.
Him from the county cork, swimming up the rivers of blood
Pete was something to be reconed with, if someone had told me girl i d a never left.
So i sing oh hell is coming, if i would a known sooner maybe i'd never left you with him.
Oh he dont want to, but his hands are on your throat, and there down your spine he done got you.

Now peterpatrick worked his whole life, he'd a done better if survived the cold cold nights.
Oh he had secrets in his life, most of us just rather died

Pete lost someone he was close to, someone he should held onto.Pete was something to be reconed with, if someone had told me girl i d a never left.
So i sing oh hell is coming, if i would a known sooner maybe i'd never left you with him.
Oh he dont want to, but his hands are on your throat, and there down your spine he done got you.
