Biography

K.C. Accidental was a Canadian indie rock band which formed the original basis for Broken Social Scene.

The core of the band consisted of Kevin Drew (Broken Social Scene) and Charles Spearin (Do Make Say Think), and started out as a two person recording outfit. The “K.C.” in the band’s name was taken from the initials of their first names. They released two albums of mostly instrumental music. The project’s second album, Anthems For The Could’ve Bin Pills, also included contributions from Jason Collett, Evan Cranley, Emily Haines, Jason McKenzie, Jessica Moss, James Payment, Bill Priddle, James Shaw and Justin Small.

Many of the musicians involved in the album went on to work with Broken Social Scene, who released their debut album, Feel Good Lost in 2001. Spearin and Drew released a second album afterwards, with the track listing for both albums structured to seem as if Anthems and Captured Anthems were one full album. The Anthems track listing was shown as having 6 blank tracks before the 6 music tracks, whereas the Captured Anthems was presented in the opposite fashion (1-6 music tracks, 7-12 blank).

Broken Social Scene also included a song with the title “Kc Accidental” on its Juno Award-winning album You Forgot It In People.

    glad to hear there are reissues of this. i think this is one of those albums that slipped through the cracks and was never properly recognized. kudos for bringing it back.

    Haven't listened to these guys that much in a couple of years. (Been on a musical journey.) But they were with me even from the first month I started to listen to modern instrumental rock music back in 2002. I recently read a review of the re-issue in one of sweden's biggest newspapers, and it just felt so good to see it. It got a solid 4 of 5. And truly, this is one of the finest projects. "Ruined in 84" is the soundtrack of my dreams.

    man K.C. Accidental needs to reform... Tired Hands is a work of genius; one of my favorite album closers of all time
