Machetes


Machetes formed as if by fate, fueled by the common craving for excitement and creativity. A whirlwind of coincidences drew each member together, dragging them from their respective spaces in the wide music landscape of Toronto. The beginnings proved to be quite proliferating, as the girls’ unique and diverse musical backgrounds clashed and converged, creating a mosaic of sound and imagery that injects passion and drive back into the limp, sterile body of rock and roll.

Machetes formed as if by fate, fueled by the common craving for excitement and creativity. A whirlwind of coincidences drew each member together, dragging them from their respective spaces in the wide music landscape of Toronto. The beginnings proved to be quite proliferating, as the girls’ unique and diverse musical backgrounds clashed and converged, creating a mosaic of sound and imagery that injects passion and drive back into the limp, sterile body of rock and roll. The integrity and glamour of Machetes comes out in both the music and their show- this is all girl rock and roll with out a single nod to a typical ‘girl rock’ sound. Rather, it’s the love child conceived by a massive orgy of music that includes Siousxie Sioux, Love and Rockets, Iggy Pop and Black Sabbath- and that’s just for starters. Influences range from art-rock to brit-pop, punk/post-punk to glam, each member contributing equally to the overall look and sound.

This is music played by a group who bleeds music, played with such force you know their lives depend on it. Although Machetes have only been playing live since April 2008 (band was formed in April 2007), they have already shared bills with Woodhands (sold out, debut show at the Wrongbar, Toronto), Born Ruffians, dd/mm/yyyy and Semi-Precious Weapons. In January 2009 Machetes launched themselves again with a Rock and Roll Cabaret party at The Drake Underground in Toronto, playing two sets to a packed house. The shows were filmed for future DVD use and to chart their story as they out grow their roots and head out of Toronto. The show also featured the release of their EP "Too Dirty to be a Rat" produced and recorded by Toronto musc producer Rob Sanzo. Five songs recorded before the band had even played a show the EP shows the band at their most controlled yet still with immense emotion. January also marked the bands collaboration with Roger O'Donnell as their manager. Long time musician and member of The Cure and now turning his years of experience to Machetes advantage.
