THE HISTORY.......> Porcelain Forehead entered the Ottawa, Canada, punk scene in 1982 and quickly gained a strong following with their unique brand of punk with the occasional burst of hardcore and Mike Hillis's frenetic vocals.......> Over their 3-year life span - first with drummer Ian Seabrook, then with Geordie Allen who replaced Seabrook in '83 - they did some touring, recorded an e.p. (Right Now! The World Needs a Clear Head, 1982) and an l.p. (Frogboy Lives, 1985, released in 1993), had tracks on three compilations (Blender Mix, Primitive Air-Raid, P.E.A.C.E.), and shared a stage with many infamous bands including the Dead Kennedys, the Butthole Surfers, and M.D.C........> They stopped performing in 1985 when guitarist Chris McLellan went to India.
