Toronto based math-rock group
Formed around 1994, Pecola made a number of compilation appearances, put out a couple singles or so, and released an excellent 12 inch EP entitled Dat Hoang through Slipped Disc & Skull Geek. All of that was leading up to their one and sadly final album The Mexican, which was released in 1999 through Kosher Rock.
Pecola played a slightly noisier and aggressive style of math-rock that took many twist and turns within their generally short length songs. Their sound was based around a sense of recklessness which made it greatly appealing to listen to in my opinion. Just as soon as you thought things were speeding out of control, they could switch gears and gather themselves up then head in a completely different direction only to do it all over again.
