Teenage Head began their journey in Hamilton, Ontario – four teenage friends from Westdale Collegiate practicing in a basement day and night. It was 1975 and there was no catchphrase for the hybrid music they were creating. At the same time in New York, bands like The Ramones were also distilling these influences into a new kind of energy. It wasn’t until 1977 that this worldwide movement became known as punk and the music industry would never be the same.
A debut album is released in 1979, distributed by Epic Records Canada (the iconic single, Picture My Face, is one of the most collectible of that era). A year later, the group signs to Attic Records and release Frantic City, the album that puts them on the international radar and influences everyone from Gord Downie and The Tragically Hip to Arcade Fire to actor/singer Hugh Dillon. The hit singles, “Something On My Mind” and “Let’s Shake” propel the lp to platinum sales (100,000).
The host of the Emmy award-winning satirical TV news show “The Daily Show”, Noah’s provocative brand of stand-up comedy pushes boundaries and spares no one, himself included. His latest comedy special “Afraid of the Dark” was just released on Netflix and he is the author of the New York Times bestseller “Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood”.
His television specials and series have been the highest rated programming in Comedy Central history, his DVD sales have reached seven million units, his videos have received a half a billion views on YouTube, and his live concerts have become mega-events played in front of sold-out arenas worldwide.
New for 2017 “The Best Side Of The Moon” tour features a full performance of what many would call the most iconic rock album of all time the classis Dark Side of the Moon album in its entirety as well as some of the most popular songs from the Syd Barrett years, Meddle, Wish You Were Here, Animals, The Wall, The Final Cut, Momentary Lapse of Reason and The Division Bell albums.
