Biography

There are (at least) six bands with this name.

1) A fast metallic hardcore band from the Toronto area.
They released a split with Ochre, a split with Acrid, a live split with Chokehold, a live LP from 2004, and a Discography CD on No Idea, maybe some other stuff. Members went on to play in Countdown to Oblivion, Haymaker, Cursed, Pick Your Side, Burning Love and The Swarm. A remixed discography 12” entitled “Devoid of Everything” was released in 2013 on A389 Recordings. The band also played shows in Toronto and Hamilton prior and after the shows in Baltimore respectively. They are active again and writing new material with mostly original members.

The 2013 lineup consists of-

Chris Colohan (Burning Love, Cursed) - Vocals
Jeff Beckman (Pick Your Side, Haymaker) - Guitar
Joel Fisher (Legion 666) - Guitar
Willem-Jan (Insult NL) - Bass
Curtis Gordon (Haymaker) - Drums

2) Left For Dead was a band initially made up of former Queen Anne’s Revenge singer Eddie Gowan, former Trouble Tribe guitarist Adam Wacht, former Saigon Kick bassist Tom Defile (who later briefly rejoined Saigon Kick, along with guitarist Jeff Blando), and former Beggars & Thieves drummer Bobby Borg.

Adam Wacht and Bobby Borg also played together in a side band called Opinion.

Adam Wacht was replaced in Left For Dead by guitarist Jeff Blando, who later played for Slaughter and Saigon Kick (along with bassist Tom Defile).

Jeff Blando was later replaced by James Hogan, who later played with Matt Mercado in his band Pivotman, and with Chuck Schuldiner of Death.

The band mutually disbanded in 1995, and Bobby Borg joined Warrant, which he has since left.
