Rock My World Canada, Chapter 12: Broken Social Scene
[Mike Carr has put together a massive volume on Canadian music history entitled Canadian Alternative & Indie Reference and Collector’s Guide. It’s an incredible discography of hundreds of bands. This is the latest excerpt from his book. – AC]
Broken Social Scene is an indie rock band from Toronto, a musical collective with as few as six and as many as nineteen members, formed in 1999 by Kevin Drew and Brendan Canning. Most of its members currently play in various other groups and solo projects, mainly based around Toronto. The band refuses the label “supergroup,” based on size or the ubiquity of their members, claiming that in the indie scene, everyone is involved in more than one project. The band was awarded Junos in 2003 and 2006 for Alternative Album of the Year.
