The band took their name from the Sons of Freedom, a controversial Doukhobor activist group in Saskatchewan in the early 1900s. Their self-titled 1988 debut album was emblazoned with a prominent slogan from Canadian social justice activist Nellie McClung, Never retract, never retreat, never apologise…get the thing done and let them howl.
The band’s 1991 album Gump debuted on the Canadian campus radio charts (see Chart) at #1, ahead of Nirvana’s Nevermind, which debuted the same week at #2.
The band broke up in 1993, although they briefly reunited in 1995 to tour in support of a rarities compilation, Tex. Binns, Short and Harrison subsequently joined with Lee Aaron in the band 2preciious.
