Greetings from........Invasives

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

Hey Cookie thanks for the shout out.

I've been following their tour a bit thru their facebook page and their girl friends are keeping us in the loop as well. Sounds like they're having a good time. Glad to hear that you got a chance to catch them again.

Take care,

Heh, are they a rock n' roll band in Europe who are hockey fans? Relatives of board members? :) Just wondering where this all comes from, looks and sounds like a sweet roadtrip tho! :drunk:

THE EPIC STORY OF INVASIVES

The three men of Invasives were all but born into a life of music. Drummer Hans Anus spent much of his childhood being babysat by his father's bandmates, until scurvy forced them all into an early retirement. Hans has recounted that "touring privateer vessels is both exciting and arduous". Brothers Adam and Byron Slack, who have known each other since Adam's birth, honed their musical skills recording homemade lo-fi demos on a boombox, all before hitting the ripe old age of ten. Years later, as their lives converged, Hans and Adam met on a peewee football league (both of whom inadvertently inspired the movie "The Waterboy"). Upon realizing organized sports were not the wise activity for slight, artsy youths, the boys spent their secondary education years performing jazz, drama, fine art and skateboarding.

Adam and Byron formed a musical project called Dredger, but much like early Pantera, much of this band's existence is shrouded in mystery.

Hans independently formed his own band (we prefer to call the project Unicorn Boy), which led to Byron jamming with Hans at a "house party", perhaps even a "kegger". Byron and Hans forged a bond that led to forming their own musical endeavor. Adam, being the typical younger sibling, pestered and pestered the other boys until he was finally allowed to join. However, to teach him a lesson and keep him in his place, Byron and Hans forced Adam, an aspiring guitar player in the vein of Guy Mann-Dude, to play bass. The trio was quickly asked to play some shows. This led to a hasty decision to name their project Married to Music.

The band released their first independent record, "The World's Gotta Go Round", in 2003. The trio undertook an enviable touring schedule which has since made the boys (who, by this point, were becoming men, though still slight of physique) experts on the Canadian highway system. Their hectic touring schedule led to groundbreaking tours with the likes of Removal, Hanson Brothers, and NoMeansNo. The band came to the attention of SNFU's Rake Records, which released their second album "Sweet Kicking and Screaming" in 2005. Thanks to some favors being called in, the record was mixed by David Ogilvie, known for his work in Skinny Puppy and The Tear Garden. Bill Leeb did not appear on the recording, contrary to popular belief that Leeb has appeared on every album ever recorded. Black Banana Records, founded by the legendary Circle the Wagons, released a 7" called "Miracles" in 2005.

After a tour with the Hanson Brothers where Byron successfully caught a cabbage in a bag, the trio began work on their third full length recording, which found the band seeking a name change. After many monikers being bandied about, such as "Pizza" and "The John Chedsey Blues Experience", Invasives was chosen due to the fact that a google search proved no one else had used the name before. In late 2007, Invasives undertook their first European tour under the wings of NoMeansNo, whose Wright brothers guested on the 2008 Invasives self titled release.

2008 finds Invasives poised with their finest record to date, ready to visit their new friends in Europe once again. Five years of hard touring and hard work have gotten their stage show honed to a finely tuned machine. As Mike of the lamented Circle the Wagons once said, "When we tour with Invasives, they just get faster and tighter. We just get faster."
