Formed in 1999 by ex-By Divine Right member Brendan Canning and K.C. Accidental's Kevin Drew,
Broken Social Scene are one of Canada's premiere indie bands. They released the critically acclaimed You Forgot
it in People in 2002, gaining a lot of attention for their swarming of instruments in geniune pop songs. At that
point the band was at 11 members. They released a follow-up in 2005, Broken Social Scene, a more
ambitious and sprawling album, the band's personnel increased to 17 members. These included members of
fellow indie Candians Metric and Stars. The collages of sound mixed with lo-fi emotional rock makes a
band that won't soon be forgotten.
