Duotang formed in Winnipeg in the summer of 1995, by two young gentlemen who shared a penchant for red wine on good days, and Labatt Blue on the rest. They also shared a great love for sixties bands such as The Who, The Beatles, The Kinks and such. Rod Slaughter (today, he plays in Novillero) played bass and Sean Allum played drums, in different bands. They got together late at night at the warehouse their respective band’s shared, and played sixties songs until dawn. No one else would ever want to join in, so Rod became the singer.
