Adapting their name from a notorious London lunatic asylum, Toronto’s Coney Hatch drew plenty of attention plus some critical acclaim within their homeland, but never were able to arranged themselves in addition to the melodic hard rock and roll pack outside their house turf. Shaped by vocalist/bassist Andy Curran and drummer Dave Ketchum in 1980, the band’s primary lineup solidified with the help of previous Firefly vocalist/guitarist Carl Dixon and business lead guitarist Steve Shelski the next year. Authorized by Kim Mitchell’s Anthem Information (later bought by Hurry), the music group documented a self-titled debut in 1982, after that adopted it with 1983’s much less successful Outa Hands. Ketchum was changed by fresh drummer Barry Connors before 1985’s Friction, which fared no better, prompting the band’s separation after being lowered by their label in 1986. A short reunion tour was booked to coincide using the launch of 1992’s Greatest of Three best hits arranged, and the band users once again proceeded to go their separate methods.
