Dammit Christine
Dammit Christine Bio:

Dammit Christine is a Toronto based indie band consisting of musicians from different parts of the world who have come together to produce a sound blending their various influences. A mixture of honest songwriting and passionate execution, Dammit Christine's music has been described as Pixies meets Radiohead meets Modest Mouse meets Billy Talent.

Brothers Max and Alex Wright have collaboratively written, recorded and produced music for years. Toiling in their makeshift home studio, with Max handling drums and vocals, and Alex handling guitars and bass, the brothers steadily refined their sound, building multiple albums' worth of material, nevertheless growing ever-restless with their inability to perform their songs live. In the summer of 2004, after countless sonic evolutions and name changes, the brothers resolved to assemble a live cast of able musicians to bring their songs to life. Shaken by a recent and brutal falling out with one of his close friends, Max called the project Dammit Christine.
In late 2004, after numerous unyielding auditions for a bassist, Max sought and contacted Ahmed Sayed, a bassist with whom he had performed in another Toronto band, and in whom he had confidence and the knowledge of supreme ability. Upon auditioning, Ahmed was quickly invited into the band, at which point he parted ways with his project at the time and was made the third member of Dammit Christine.
As the band auditioned for the elusive fourth member, they began rehearsing and refining their live show, with Max simultaneously handling drums and vocals. As countless candidates for drums and vocals failed to meet up with the band's stringent expectations for ability and style, Max, Alex and Ahmed became set on the notion of performing as a three-piece band.
In the summer of 2005, with the band poised for its first show as a three-piece, Ahmed received a follow-up message in regards to a stale internet classifieds post calling for auditions. Cindy Caron, who had recently relocated to Toronto from her hometown, Quebec City, in order to find and join a serious and refined rock band, was quickly scheduled for an audition. After the first audition it was easily decided that Cindy, the hard-hitting drummergirl from Quebec, would be an ideal fit for the band. Thus Cindy Caron was welcomed as the fourth and final member of Dammit Christine.
With the band lineup complete, Dammit Christine was soon playing shows regularly in Toronto.

With an inherent chemistry among its members stemming from their fully developed individual styles and sense of purpose as musicians, Dammit Christine's confidence and intensity on stage has rapidly grown, establishing them in the modest time they have been performing together as a serious and developed project in the Toronto indie music scene. With shows booked in the province of Quebec and elsewhere, and with an EP in the works for release later in the year, 2006 should prove to be a year of expansion and propulsion for Dammit Christine.
