First and foremost, Ani Kyd is a rocker with a powerful throat. In 2005 Kyd released her debut solo CD "Evil Needs Candy Too" on Alternative Tentacles, co-produced with Jello Biafra. Formerly of Spank Machine, Approach The Throne, and Thor (yes, that Thor!), she had fronted the Vancouver heavy rock band FUEL INJECTED.45, including guitarist Ashley Blue (Strapping Young Lad) and bassist Stuart Carruthers (Tenet, Grip inc., The Golers).
Although the band never made a proper album before splitting up in 2004, they made great demos, and this CD collects them up for your listening pleasure. The original lineup also includes Byron Stroud (Fear Factory, Zimmer's Hole, Strapping Young Lad) and Scotty McCargar (Bif Naked). PAST DEMO-NS is a slab of metallic heaviness that Alternative Tentacles is proud to unearth and share it with the world. Fuel Injected .45 was resurrected in 2009 with a new lineup, and are currently making an album due by year's end.
The resurrected band will be playing Canadian & US shows this summer in conjunction with this release.
