The Winnipeg punk-pop band Duotang was formed in 1996 when members Rod Slaughter (Zen Bungalow) and Sean Allum (Bovine) began jamming together after their respective bands' shows and practices.
Slaughter (vocals, bass, organ) and Allum (drums, backup vocals) soon hit the road, signed to Mint records, and released Smash the Ships and Raise the Beams in 1996. The Pros and Cons was released in May 1998. Bright Side followed two years later. ~ Gina Boldman, Rovi
