The New Pornographers

avatar

The New Pornographers are a Canadian group formed in 1997 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Their sound is influenced by that of such bands as The Cars and Cheap Trick, but they use much more sophisticated rhythms and chord changes. Although it was widely reported that the New Pornographers got their name from a pamphlet put out by televangelist Jimmy Swaggart condemning rock ‘n’ roll as “the new pornography,” Carl Newman has stated that he came up with the name after watching a Japanese film called The Pornographers.
