KEN mode says
KEN mode (Winnipeg, MB, Canada)


With 'Success' the band set out to pay tribute to where they’ve come from: a salute to both their Canadian Prairie roots, and a time when they first started to care about making music; the burgeoning ‘grunge’ and Touch & Go/Dischord scenes of the late 80s/early 90s, with bands like Nirvana, Big Black, Cop Shoot Cop, The Cows, Circus Lupus, and Drive Like Jehu warping their teenage minds. Lyrically, the band’s fascination with comedy spirals around classical western concepts of ‘success’ – from employment, sex, marriage, religion, socioeconomic standing, and particularly the many perceptions people have of how they, and those around them, happen tofit into the world.
Recorded by the legendary Steve Albini (Nirvana, the Jesus Lizard, etc), ‘Success’ is the group’s most raw, real, and true record to date.

We Are Hex (Indianapolis, IN, United States)


We Are Hex is a messy pile of pop slop… booming keyboards, precise and spaced out guitar, blown out bass, led by a barrage of drums . The rhythmic vocals pace themselves with the kick, conveying sex and sadness. The lyrics are deceptively self-aware in their simplicity.

The band was formed in early 2007 by Brandon Beaver and Jilly Weiss. They immediately closeted themselves in a storage unit in their home town of Indianapolis.
Garrett Jamieson


Originally from Winnipeg, Garrett moved to Toronto to take comedy writing and performing at Humber College, which was completed with honours. Garrett attributes his smart, soulless and smutty satire style from working at a funeral home, a dirt factory, and an adult video store. Garrett has performed in all across the world. He has also written and performed on XM Satellite Radio. When he’s not doing comedy Garrett is drawing, drinking, or playing the banjo.
