Sofa

Sofa was a band from 1993 to 1997.

Sofa formed when Brad Todd (voice) met Keith Marchand (drums) while teaching a summer course at Concordia University’s department of Fine Arts. The delicate teacher-student relationship was heedlessly abrogated by drinking sessions in which a shared love of Dischord, Factory and Mute recordings was disclosed and plans to make a band were hatched. Ian Ilavsky (guitar) was approached and ritualistically indoctrinated with repeated forced viewings of Wings Of Desire and Nostalghia. The band was born and began writing, with Scott Clarkson (bass) recruited from the graveyard shift of one of Montreal's more colourful 'short-stay' hotels a few months later. The four founding members stuck together for the duration, devoting themselves to the sonic transmission of isolation, neurosis and loss.
