Al Nolan:

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!

Lead singer of the Toronto Hard core Punk Band Trigger Happy

Trigger Happy have released 5 full length albums, 1 re-released full length, 2 split records and were featured on several compilations.
