Following failed bands like Malibu Barbie and Handsome Dog, New and Muhabir formed Groovy Religion in Toronto in 1983 and became the house band for The Beverley Tavern’s ‘Elvis Mondays’ jam nights (which William New has carried on for more than 25 years) in 1984. Groovy Religion held their residency until a representative for Montreal’s Psyche Industry Records saw them and offered them a record deal. Members included John Borra, John Lalley, Steve Muhabir and William New.
