RUBBER KILLT, the legendary Canadian electro trash band survives with less members (one), a renewed enthusiasm, changed direction and spanking new tunes.

The founding member and principle song writer, Thor started his musical journey by the mid 70's in Montreal under the name Cherokee Haze. In 1978, with little success and absolutely no fan base, he quit his own band and dived into an obscure cover band called Jets. This was really shitty name for an amazing band that played to huge outdoor festival, theater and arena crowds throughout the North East. Aside from playing a few of Thor's original songs, the band was basically a tribute to Queen, Styx and Boston.

In 1980, after having found the constant drug use, poverty and touring less than the perfect Rock n' Roll dream, Thor quit to form his own band, General Panic. Truly original in musical style and a single critic's favorite band, General Panic was renowned for being fired from clubs by the third song. Surprisingly it took almost four years of failure for the rest of the members to quit.

The unstoppable, Thor whored himself out to many local bands and ended up playing bass for The Snipes by the mid 90's. Lots of tight original punk tunes, many cases of beer and very little actual practice helped The Snipes become Montreal's best and drunkest opening act.

Prior to this, in 1990, Thor created the L.A.Records Recording Facility as his personal toy chest and creative outlet. On the down side, Thor with best friend and engineer Ray of the Big House, had to deal with more than a few ungrateful, inexperienced snot nosed punks and the ever selfish local Record Labels. It was still a great place to experiment and some of the world's top musicians passed through the facility's doors or passed out in the porcelain sink. I digress.

Rubber Killt was the L.A.Records Studio band. Rubber Killt also served as the backup band to recording artists Jessica Ehrenworth and Cheryl McSomething Scottish. The Band's musical style went from country to heavy rock to alternative to old school Motown R&B. Never consistent in style but always evolving Rubber Killt changed members frequently (Mike Matulis, Andy Jameson, Roger Mann, Dave Devine, Dave Neil, Chris Joli, Rejean de Grand Maison and even a few really famous people provided occasional guest appearances).

By 2002, due to unforeseen circumstances, Thor found himself in Los Angeles hanging out with the likes of Dick Clark, P.Ditty, John 5 and other unknowns but without his studio or a band. Thor had found the land of cheap booze and loose women. Unfortunately this was also the place where talent gets little respect and music is just not something the folks around here pay for. Twas the time to say fuck that, so Thor sat on his sweet behind and never touched another guitar until …. this new and amazing punk chick came into his life and kicked his fat ass.

And thus in 2012, Rubber Killt lives again to fight another day.
