canada comin' atcha.

Born Ruffians are Luke Lalonde, Mitch DeRosier and Steve Hamelin. they play guitars, bass and drums and sing. they are fantastic. i first heard Born Ruffians on X-Posure (hosted by XFM's John Kennedy aka a man of brilliance) arounddd June last year i think. and i was immediately blown away.

they're poppy and punky and funky and shouty and quirky and the vocals are slightly similar to that of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah! and all their music is just fucking strange. but in a completely good way.

their album 'Red, Yellow and Blue' is due out in February on Warp Records and i for one cannot wait as the new material sounds absolutely (and i mean absolutely) fantastic.


Born Ruffians - This Sentence Will Ruin/Save Your Life
Born Ruffians - Diverting On Norm
Born Ruffians - You Said I Said The Sun Took The Sky
Born Ruffians - I'm One Of Those Girls

a whole host of tracks there mainly because i couldn't decide what was my favourite. if you like these you must get your ears on more songs by the band; they won't disappoint.
