I found out about this Toronto band, "Shut-In" on an excellent blog called,
Lot's of post hardcore and Very obscure stuff.
Take the "Shut-In" as an example, including a couple of guy's from the band 'Pecola' and another who went on to play in 'Picastro', the "Shut-In" had only one album,
"Mediafire"_-_"Shut In"_-_"Would Hope Never Happen".com/download/r40giv1d715384u/si-whnh.zip
If you'd like to know why the Band chose that Name and how the Great album title came about,
you can read an Interview by 'Wavelength-Toronto' with them, Juz Below, http://www.wavelengthtoronto.com/back_issues/02_05.html (not too long),
From the interview in 2003 with "Shut-In" (see above,)
"Having Worked in the corporate market, I know who you mean when you say many question the relevance of Art and music.
In a total economy where everything down to our DNA will soon be for sale, of course art and music is viewed as irrelevant by people with no creative conceptions beyond where they will find the next market for their product and/ or idea.
How insane and fucked up that the concept of an "IDEA" has become a tradeable commodity !
The gatekeeper of this Society and culture keep creativity and critical thinking at bay,, BUT, this makes creation Imperative.
Choosing between the destruction of Capitalism and the creations of the Imaginative mind is a no brainer.
As far as my money goes"
