Mary Mary of GAY BIKERS ON ACID on left. He's an amazing linguist- he picked up on my long-lost British accent (we left England when I was 6), asking me to continue speaking- then not only identified Kent, but specifically Bromley, where I'd lived! Amazing! All this while a girl was trying her best to distract him in the corner! She eventually succeeded.

Montreal 1990 SHLONK, SNITCHES, SEXGARAGE, OKA

LOST? Go to the PUNKS & PROVOCATEURS BLOG INDEX . List of BANDS and SUBJECTS on this site BY NAME with DIRECT LINKS. All photos and text © Linda Dawn Hammond / IndyFoto.com 2010
This was an early '90s shoot in my studio on Blvd. St.Laurent.
SHLONK (L-R) On the floor and naked as usual, vocalist Al Warnock, Jody, bassist Colleen MacIntyre (+1962-1996, of Aids... a great loss to the Montreal music and alt scene), Angie Shlonk, guitarist, and Michelle Bouchard ( later replaced by Kelly).

SHLONK
I have some hilarious live shots of SHLONK, which I will add when this show is over and have more time to dig into this blog exhibit! Al riding a tricycle, naked (naturally) and covered in blood from rolling on a broken beer bottle... too bad it was shot in B&W!

SEXGARAGE
Politically, much was going on in 1990. SEXGARAGE for example, which began for me when I attempted to shoot "voguing" at a gay bash (in the party sense of the word) and it turned literal. We instead got caught up in a vicious police riot and beating (but there are photos of the initial party as well on the SEXGARAGE site!).
Link to PHOTOS: The SNITCHES were one of my favourite local Montreal bands in 80s/ 90s . They took over the infamous SEXGARAGE loft space (site of the 1990 homophobic police attack- see link for details) ) on La Gauchetiere and Beaver Hall Hill, and threw many ecstatic late night parties, which we all miss. The SNITCHES eventually refined or redefined their sound, got signed (though maybe not in that order)... I wish them well! Though it was more fun before. They reminded me of an early Talking Heads- very quirky and hard to pin.

The OKA crisis, an armed Mohawk uprising in Quebec, occurred the same year. Speaking of rebels! Those photos are at SEXGARAGE
