Sometime in Late 2009 three young men appeared out of nowhere at a sketchy practice space on Islington Avenue and began writing and recording songs. These songs belong to Connoisseurs of Porn.

They don’t follow the standard three chords, verse-chorus-verse pop-rock song format; they weren’t built to be digested in one listening. Influenced by hours of picking strings alone in a room, tapping out drum beats on a desk, and crooning for no one, Connoisseurs of Porn have managed to create their own brand of sonic lust. A sound that is both used and sweet.

Late 2010 they released their first 7 inch "The Peasant Terror/Chicken". It was just a taste, but enough to remind you of artists like Captain Beefheart, The Jesus Lizard, Sonic Youth, Howlin’ Wolfe, and The MC5. All raveled up in two distinct recordings.

It was also enough to gain the attention of renowned Toronto radio DJ, Alan Cross, who has featured the band a number of times on his former website www.explorermusic.com.

In 2011 Connoisseurs of Porn released a five song digital EP follow-up "I'm Bored".

Mastered by Scott Craggs, each song is about as raw and wrangled as you can get, and yet, there’s just something about it that makes you want to hum along.

2011 also marked the bands first appearance at NXNE.

The band is finished recording their follow up EP "Falling Down the Stairs". Expect more vinyl and riots in the streets in 2012.

Grant Spooner, Greg Keefe and Chris Thomas are Connoisseurs of Porn. The music is always changing. And they will always be making music in some form or another because it’s necessary.
