You can’t talk about Canadian punk rock without mentioning Almighty Trigger Happy. Originating from Toronto, Ontario and formed in 1991, the band made a huge mark in the 90’s punk rock scene, not only in Canada but across the globe. With 6 releases under their belts, they are best known for their albums “I’ll Shut Up When You Fuck Off” (1997 – Bad Taste Records) and “I Hate Us” (1999 – Bad Taste Records).
Although the inter-web states the band ended in 1999, with a reunion in 2004, the band are still very much alive-and-well and ripping stages across Ontario. Almighty Trigger Happy has not yet finished writing the history books of Canadian punk!
