Album Notes
If the relentless pounding of Michigan’s metal stamping plants somehow contributed to the Stooges’ driving rhythms, then the industrial decay and grittiness of Steeltown Hamilton has helped to form the Barettas attitude and sound.

Where to start? Katie (vocals/guitar) picks up the instrument to kill time during a lengthy high school suspension (she nobly takes the fall for ‘holding’, and keeps some friends out of trouble). Carly (drums) and Kate (bass) play in a series of local bands before completing the trio. A first gig in the basement of a local watering hole is standing room only, and the Barettas are born.

Performances have followed at some of Toronto’s preeminent indie venues, including The Opera House and Lee's Palace, as well as opening slots for the Fleshtones (NYC) and Agent Orange (CA).

A sonic Altamont for the electro-pop movement.
