Smiling Buddha Presents:

KEN mode

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.

Life In Vacuum

Canadian math punk trio, made up of two Ukrainian-born brothers and a third non-Ukrainian-born band mate, honing in a noisy post-punk sound with refined song structures and catchy melodies.

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.
