The Canadian rock band consists of vocalist and guitarist Danko Jones, bassist John Calabrese and drummer Dan Cornelius. To distinguish the band from the singer, Jones (which is not his real name) is also known by the nickname The Mango Kid.
The band first received attention in Canadian indie rock circles for its 1999 EP My Love is Bold, an unabashedly sex-drenched blend of soul and punk sung with swaggering confidence by Jones, in a suit and on occasion, a fedora. On its more recent albums, the band has evolved in a more heavy metal direction.
The band also have a large following in Europe, especially in Sweden.
