Acquiring their name from explicit comics that originally surfaced in the 1930s, the Tijuana Bibles created in Toronto in 1997 to supply the soundtrack for local Super-8 filmmaker Stacey Case’s task, Arriba! The Parkdale Wrestler. When the music group made the jump to live locations in 1999, they produced stage personas to conceal their identities. By using Mexican wrestling masks, the music group users became: the Crippler (vocals, acoustic guitar), Blue Demon (bass, vocals), la Felina Negra (saxophone), Sonny-Boy Liston (acoustic guitar), and Friend Lee Roth (drums, vocals). The Tijuana Bibles’ music is usually a wild, frequently humorous mixture of garage area rock and roll, punk, and browse. After a 12 months of tireless self-promotion and countless concert events (which noticed the band talk about the stage with such performers as the Sadies, Deadbolt, and Un Vez), the Tijuana Bibles released their initial independent CD, House Wrestling, in 2000.
