Oakville had so many good bands, and The Fullblast is one of the few punk rock bands that I really like even if I’m not fan of the genre. Maybe it’s for the simple fact that Gordie Ball was in it. Their first release was the pretty obscure “The Movie Kisses” demo ep they self-released in 2000. Their first album “Punk Technology” was also self-released and featured a really mind blowing beautiful artwork. You’d have to see it to believe it. Their last self-released material was the “Constructing Fidelity” ep in 2002. By this time the word was out about these guys and they were playing all over. Gordie Ball left sometime in 2002 and was replaced by Darran Malcolm. The vocalist, Ian Stager founded his own label, Blackbox Recordings, and they released their following effort “Contagious Movement Theory” as the label’s first output. These guys then toured with all the big bands, Boys Night Out, Alexisonfire, Rise Against, etc. Their last album “Short Controlled Bursts” would be released on Dine Alone Records, and would prove to be their most accessible material.
