Lowest of the Low - Sordid Fiction
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

Lowest of the Low - Sordid Fictionhe Toronto band released only two albums during its brief run in the 1990s, including the Canrock classic Shakespeare My Butt. Blame personal and creative differences. After burying the hatchet, original members Ron Hawkins, Stephen Stanley and David Alexander reunited and have now recorded their first studio album in 10 years. Energetic songs like “…And then the Riot” and “The Last Recidivist” and such elegiac numbers as “Giolietta the Just” prove the beloved Low have lost none of their literate, visceral edge.
