Born Oct. 7, 1953 in Hamilton, Canada, drummer / songwriter extraordinaire Jack Pedler started his career as a teenager playing in the Warner Bros. / RCA recording band, Buxton Kastle. He continued on with Canadian icons The Mercy Brothers, Ray Materick and finally with the nationally acclaimed punk band, Teenage Head, with whom he still performs after a twenty-year association.

During his years with "The Head", Jack relocated to NY city and recorded his first solo CD, Fairyland It Ain't for Mutiny Records. Then, switching labels and producers, he found his way to Race Records where he created his critically acclaimd CD, D. T. Delinquent. Jack is also recognized as one of the hottest session drummers on the Canadian music scene.

For his fabulous performances, Jack received the 2005 Hamilton Music Awards nomination for Best Drummer.

title: Clown School

This work is the brainchild of Race Record's Georgie Fab and Teenage Head drummer, Jack Pedler and Juno Award winner, L. Stu Young. It's a very strange mix of trance, rap, blues and Punk Polka, with a crazy, warped sense of humour thrown in for good measure. Quite the message! Though only 20 minutes long, it's a guaranteed, "I've never heard anyting like this!" listening experience.

title: Jack Pedler's Clown School

Jack takes center stage again and gives us another "One-Off". With a running time of 16+ minutes, we are left with a felling of "I have to play that again."

This is real punk rock: rude and frantic with a taste of Jack's incredible sense of warped humour.
