Bad Luck #13

Profile:
Not only Moncton's but the Maritimes' longest running punk bands. Originally formed in 1986 by Ray Auffrey and Ed Markee, the group added vocalist Mike Melanson in 1987 with bassist Denis Marquette and drummer Richard Auffrey joined the lineup in 1991. The group only changed somewhat over the course of all these years with Markee and then guitarist Rob Caissie leaving the band in 1991 and fifth member Claude Doiron came aboard in 1996.

Their singer, Batman, would challenge the often blue collar crowd with everything from cross-dressing to aggressive behaviour. They liked to provoke crowds in the same ironic way Jello Biafra would, challenging the tough guy punk persona with taunting sexual innuendo, young rural kids were not ready for. Made up of art school performers, they would often have people play dead on stage, play a triangle or Batman would fly out into the crowd in a dress. All behind a wall of straight ahead punk.
