"We really love your engaging style, it is emotive, minimalist, evocative and very subtle. The choice of material backed up with guitar is marvellous and gels together in a hauntingly beautiful sound that has you wanting more and our audiences most certainly will love your heartfelt songs…"
Peter Merrett (Music Manager, PBS FM 106-7, Melbourne, Australia

DJ gamma
gamma's love for electronic music began before he even knew what to call it. This passion grew to the point that he left his home town in late 1999, to begin a new life in Ottawa in pursuit of the electronic music scene. gamma has performed at a variety of clubs, pubs, bars, lounges, raves, house parties and weddings, in Ottawa, Montreal, and New York. His inclinations span across the entire spectrum of electronic music, and beyond, favouring "what sounds good" rather than allowing himself to be pegged as one genre or another.

Toronto City Psych Garage Indifference
Nic Waterman - Fuzz Guitar, Vocals
Damien Florio - Drums
Patrick Lefler - Bass
Liam Cosby - Verb Guitar, Vocals
"Vypers est une formation de rock psychédélique fuzzé au max qui tire ses influences de la Californie. On y retrouve du Ty Segall, du Fuzz et du Thee Oh Sees. Par contre, le groupe torontois trouve tout de même le moyen de l’approcher différemment. C’est un peu plus thrash et agressif que les noms précédemment nommés. La chanson titre rentre au poste tout comme Fuckface qui possède une bonne mélodie. On a affaire ici à une jeune formation qui semble très prometteuse."
