Careers in Science (Toronto, ON)
Bio Says: “They started passing copies of Michael Azerrad’s “Our Band Could Be Your Life” from member to member, noting that this document of the American hardcore underground in the 80s was filled with bands that stood up for what they believed in and made music that sounded like nothing that came before it, and nothing since. If we can’t nail down a sound that we want, they said, we will shoot for an idea.”
Honest review: For starters, Careers in Science are after my own heart by starting a band by passing around the essential “Our Band Could Be Your Life.” Makes pretty much every other point mute, really. Take note, other bands, a few ideas can take you a long way.
Are Careers in Science going to take over the world? No. But I will go out of my way to see them live, which is more than I can say for practically every band at CMW.
