Biography

There have been at least three bands called Personality Crisis: A 1980s Canadian punk band, a 1990s British darkwave band, and a Greek punk band.

1) Personality Crisis was a punk rock band formed in 1979 in Winnipeg, Canada. They are widely regarded as having a more complex sound than most other punk rock bands of the early 1980s while retaining the power of the early 1980s punk sound. Personality Crisis released one LP, Creatures for Awhile, in 1983, as well as several demo tapes.

After the breakup of the band in 1984, band member Jon Card went on to join SNFU, Stretch Marks, D.O.A. and the Subhumans. Singer Mitch Funk played in other bands, including Honest John, while guitarist Richard Duguay would later work with Guns N’ Roses, including contributing guitar tracks for The Spaghetti Incident?. Personality Crisis songs have been covered by SNFU and The Forbidden Dimension.

2) Personality Crisis is also the name of a darkwave band founded in the United Kingdom in the year 1995. It was founded by Johnny Halfhead, Bryn Jones, and Jonny Gray. Later they were joined by Andy Onion when they decided to take them forward as a studio band.

    Creatures For A While is one of the most underrated 80's punk albums ever.
