Delivering a playful variety of indie rock that weaves shifting guitar patterns though spare, hooky melodies and sweet but snarky vocals, Born Ruffians are a band that was formed in Midland, Ontario, Canada in 2002 by guitarist and singer Luke LaLonde, his cousin Mitch DeRosier on bass and vocals, and drummer Steve Hamelin. Originally named Mornington Drive (the group self-released an EP under that handle, though LaLonde claims he doesn't have a copy), the three musicians moved to Toronto in 2004, and soon changed the group's name to Born Ruffians. The trio earned a reputation on the Toronto club circuit for their witty songs and lively stage show, and their first demo helped them land a record deal with the British electronic label Warp Records, who handled their releases in North America, while XL Recordings became their label in Europe and Paper Bag released their music in Canada. Their self-titled debut EP was released in 2006, and the band toured the U.K. and North America, landing a cameo on the popular British TV series Skins.
