Pow Wows ( Toronto - Get Hip Recordings)
Pow Wows came onto the Toronto underground scene in the summer of 2010. Early gigs set the tone for their reputation as authentic garage and punk rock players, with performances alongside such underground heroes as the Zoobombs and No Bunny. Being loyal children of 1980s technology, the group recorded some impromptu sessions in their rehearsal space and self-released a cassette called Nightmare Soda.
At their next show, opening for legendary Pittsburgh Garage Rock legends The Cynics, the cassette found its way to Cynics Guitarist and Get Hip Recordings co-founder Gregg Kostelich. Within days plans were in motion for the tape to be mastered and pressed onto 180 gram vinyl and released by Get Hip, with a subsequent U.S. tour supporting The Cynics to follow. Further trips to SXSW and various U.S. and Canadian cities have solidified Pow Wows’ status as a powerful new band to watch out for with their original brand of off-kilter, dark and rhythmic roots punk.
The band remains on Get Hip Recordings with two singles released on vinyl as well as the heartily celebrated Nightmare Soda LP.(Get Hip Recordings / Toronto/CAN )
