Do Make Say Think (1 Albums, 2 Tracks)
Founded by two pairs of musicians with backgrounds as various as punk, jazz and industrial metal, the group has included a number of additional musicians over the years contributing to both live shows and recordings. Core members Charles Spearin (bass, keyboards, trumpet) and Ohad Benchetrit (guitar, saxophone) first played together in high school and birthed the Toronto punk band Dead Lemmings in the late 80's; both have gone on to work in sound production and engineering in Toronto. The other founding pair, Justin Small (guitar) and James Payment (drums), are seasoned downtown rock players who've done time in a long list of bands, among them the post-industrial rock group Malhavoc. During the summer of 1995, these players came togther to score the music for a Canadian youth dramatic production, sequestering themselves in an empty school room for rehearsals. The four basic verbs 'Do', 'Make', 'Say', 'Think' adorned the walls of said classroom, and these elementary-level educational placards were adopted as a project name for the nascent group.
