Euthanasia: Edmonton punk

Here’s a short documentary on Edmonton punk band Euthanasia. This would have been filmed around 1985 and includes interviews with the band and clips of a performance at Bonnie Doon Hall.

Both the band members and kids being interviewed are extremely introspective, honest and polite. With some preliminary research, it looks like Euthanasia released one EP, a 12” from 1986 called Living Heck. 

Not much audio from the band exists, HOWEVER, you can hear their song “Grub” on the Writing-On-Stone: The Alberta Compilation, erm, compilation. You can also download it from the indispensable Calgary Cassette Preservation Society.
