It all started as a lark, back in 1999, when former members of Duotang and Transonic, as well as of some of Winnipeg's other most notorious bands, got together for a harmless little jam session. Some beer was consumed, some songs were sung and the next thing you know, Novillero was formed. Comprised of Rod Slaughter (keyboards and vocals), Sean Stevens (guitars), Dave Berthiaume (drums and vocals), Grant Johnson (bass and vocals), and Jack Jonasson (tambourine, percussion, vocals, synths), Novillero made a tight and versatile keyboard driven Mod-Pop combo whom you wouldn't mind bringing home to Mom… provided she has liberal ideas about dancing on the furniture and breaking the family heirlooms. Musically, they are a veritable paisley shirt of eclectic influences; some High Numbers-era Who, some Forever Changes-era Love, some soul of 70's TSOP… all delivered with the ferocity and garage-on-fire style of the Small Faces.
Formed in the summer of 1995, the 2-piece band’s mix of mod-rock and post-punk garnered critical attention, and in March, 1996, signed to famed Vancouver independent record label Mint Records. Over the next 5 years, Duotang released three albums: Smash the Ships and Raise the Beams (1996), The Cons and the Pros (1998), and The Bright Side in 2001. All three topped the college radio charts in Canada and allowed Duotang to tour extensively across Canada, United States, and Europe. They shared the stage across Canada with The English Beat, landed the cover of Exclaim magazine and in 2002, won the Prairie Music Award for Best Video for 2001s The Evidence Comes From All Directions.
