TUSKS

When attached to the animals that bother to grow them, the tusk is sharp and stabby in their constitution. When dislodged by humans, a tusk is often carved into jewelry for the use of debutantes, or, alternatively, molded into the piano keys that a similarly narcissistic beast (commonly known as “the musician”) will play.

“TUSKS” (in the singular) is the name of a rock and roll band from Toronto. Over years, members of the band have chugged and continue to chug under many musical outfits, including Kepler, Wooden Stars, I am Robot and Proud, Sea Snakes, Snailhouse, Clark/ Metal Kites, Hilotrons, and the Ben Gunning Band. Between them, they have opened for Madlib in Japan, sired a male baby, attended the 1993 World Public Speaking Championship (as an alternate), and obtained a Ph.D. in Philosophy.

This is a new project, however. Electricity enables these men to give melody to their strange thoughts, where mother fear their sons and courtrooms love their convicts. And what varieties of melodies can they conjure? Many! From “razzle-dazzle” to “pitter-patter”, TUSKS are highly musical practitioners of emotional ambidexterity, rhetorical whimsy, and sonic reciprocity. All of these attributes are on display on their debut EP, and TUSKS welcomes fans of rock and roll with a pedigree.

Among the men in TUSKS, there are no childhood friendships to speak of. All relationships were formed well after puberty, and are thus mature and collegial.
