THE SMUGGLERS

VANCOUVER, BC

Formed when most of the members were still in high school in West Vancouver, BC, Canada, The Smugglers came of age as a garage-punk band during the grunge explosion, and came into their own in the pop-punk heyday of the mid-1990s while on Mint Records in Canada Lookout Records in the USA. Releasing eight albums over the years of 1988-2004, the band’s booze-fuelled, sweaty, and famously energetic live shows (complete with dancing and kissing contests) took them across Canada, the USA, Europe, Japan, Australia and New Zealand. Along the way, the “Canadian Ambassadors of Rock ‘n’ Roll” collided with the Hives, Mudhoney, the Queers, Supersnazz, Fugazi, the Dwarves, thee Headcoats, the Mr. T Experience, the Mummies and many more.
