Don Pyle – Out of Focus Talking Slide Show

Spoken Word
About This Project

Toronto, ON


Before he starting playing drums in Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet, before he engineered the Sadies’ Internal Sounds, Toronto-based producer, musician, and artist Don Pyle was a fledgling photographer cutting his teeth in the early Canadian punk scene.

In Don’s Out-of-Focus Talking Slideshow, prepare to be guided through photographs from the book Trouble in the Camera Club, presenting a unique and rare perspective on the under-documented Toronto punk scene. Get a rare glimpse of the likes of The Ugly, The Curse, Teenage Head, Viletones, Diodes, and D.O.A. at their earliest gigs, shown alongside candid moments of street scenes, friends, and foreign rock dignitaries – including Ramones, Dead Boys, Iggy Pop, Blondie and The Clash.

Punk fans and music history lovers, this one’s for you!
