Broken Social Scene is an indie supergroup, currently with 19 members, from Toronto, Canada.
The band's core members, Kevin Drew and Brendan Canning, recorded and released their ambient debut album, Feel Good Lost, in 2001.
However, when they played shows to support the album, the band found it difficult to put together an entertaining show based on this mainly instrumental compilation. To liven things up on stage, they brought in a number of friends from the Toronto indie scene to flesh out their performance with lyrics and vocals.
In June 2007, music website Pitchforkmedia.com reported that Kevin Drew was recording a solo album, featuring many other members of BSS. It is intended to be the first in a series of ‘Broken Social Scene Presents...' albums with a follow up by Brendan Canning to be released in 2008.
