"Formed nearly 30 years ago at the height of Vancouver BCs early punk scene, amidst Canadian HARDCORE progenitors like D.O.A., NO EXIT and SUBHUMANS, TUNNEL CANARY emerged with a sound more in common with the then still incubating UK POWER ELECTRONICS scene and a militant attitude/lifestyle more in-line with straight edge hardcore or East-Asian asceticism. \r\nInfluenced by avant-garde guitarists like Fred Frith and Keith Rowe, contemporary electronic composers like TUDOR, STOCKHAUSEN, and CAGE, and NO WAVE bands like MARS and DNA, TUNNEL CANARY produced a volatile and often violent mix of pure-noise, synthesizer music, free-improv, and confrontational performance art. Centered around the chaotic guitar-noise antics and synth compositions of guitarist Aleh Kaheen (now: Nathan Holiday) coupled with the accusatory and often absolutely-hysterical caterwauling of vocalist Ebra Ziron, and supported by the tasteful and powerful bass punctuations of David Sheftel, TUNNEL CANARYs unique sound sits somewhere in the spheres of POST-INDUSTRIAL, PROTO-POWER-ELECTRONICS, and NOISE while remaining outside the aesthetic trappings of any one of these genres. \r\nRIYL: early SPK, early RAMLEH, early CONTROLLED BLEEDING, MARS, DNA, HARRY PUSSY. 400 Copies. - Rundownsun.
