For political junkies, the name Warren Kinsella will be familiar.
He was the Liberal Party of Canada's attack-dog, also known as "Canada's James Carville".
But long before became a Liberal Party strategist, a teenage Kinsella from Calgary, Alberta, Canada got together with his friends Alan McDonald and Pierre Schenk, to form a punk rock band called The Social Blemishes. In 1977, they changed their name to the Hot Nasties, purportedly taken from a XXX film.
In 1980, they released the Invasion Of The Tribbles EP, on Kinsella's own Social Blemish label. They later released an album's length of material on cassette.
In1981, the band called it a day. But in 1994, punk rock historian Frank Manley included it on the Canadian punk rock discography, Smash The State Vol. 1.
In 2005, Kinsella had a new band called Shit From Hell, which performs some covers of The Hot Nasties. Meanwhile, Narduwar The Human Serviette's band, The Evaporators, covered "Barney Rubble Is My Double" for an album.
