The Creeping Nobodies

poster photo[from wikipedia] The Creeping Nobodies were a Canadian rock band formed in Toronto, Ontario in 2001. They played their final gig in 2009.

The Creeping Nobodies began as a one-off performance for a tribute night to the UK band The Fall, and were put together by Derek Westerholm. The tribute night was held on September 21, 2001 at the El Mocambo club in Toronto, and the band name “The Creeping Nobodies” came from the name of a fictitious band mentioned in some artwork on a Fall record sleeve. Soon afterwards, the band became its own entity, investigating a wider range of musical influences.

The band released many of their records on Blocks Recording Club (sometimes referred to simply as [][][][][][] Recording) – a workers co-operative which also released records by Final FantasyNinja High School,Bob Wiseman, Lenin I Shumov, The Hank Collective, and The Phonemes, among others. Other CD and vinyl releases have appeared on labels such as Deleted Art, fromSCRATCH, Bloodworks Music and Kosher Rock Records, as well as a number of compilation appearances.

The band line up was somewhat fluid, with Westerholm himself leaving prior to the band’s final few recordings. At the time of their last gig in May, 2009, The Creeping Nobodies were Dennis Amos, Matthew McDonough, Sarah Richardson and Valerie Uher.
