The front & back covers, & inside sleeves from “Music From the Armpit of Canada” LP released in 1986 by Problem Children Wrekords. “Name on a Gravestone” by The Hated Uncles was the last song on side 1.


I had to put this up here. It’s too funny. This is from a Forgotten Rebels gig list page on the net. We’re listed twice. The first gig went great. The second was the gig from hell. Yes, we were kicked off after 3 songs. Yes, we almost broke up…I will write about this. 1986

The booklet for The Hated Uncles “Variety Show” 1989. The incredible art is done by John Kinsella. JK nailed the words. I am very proud of this booklet.

I’ll be damned! For years I thought The Uncles broke up in 1998; but, as proven by this article our actual breakup date was February 23rd, 1999! This great article on Paul was part of the promotion for our last show (though we didn’t know that at the time) – Hamilton Spectator – Article by Bruce Mowat. (I know it sucks that the article needs 4 images to read – I have a small scanner)



Simply Saucer: Heavy Metalloid Music by Jesse Locke 2016. The Hated Uncles are mentioned twice in the book. Of course, I highly recommend this book to read about a vital part of Hamilton’s music history – Edgar Breau & Simply Saucer. The Uncles opened for Edgar & His Shadows of Ecstasy (his band at the time) a few times. They were fantastic!
