This picture of Friction Love Corps was taken sometime between 1993 and 1996. This picture was actually taken at Ozzy's, the lounge downstairs from The Zoo at the Osborne Village Inn.
Band members at the time included:
Friction Love Corps began their career as the backup band for singer/guitarist/saxaphone player Randy Reibling and his moniker The Shivers in the late '80s/early '90s. They performed cover songs in the bars but recorded music as an original act as well.
As Reibling began branching out into other areas of his life, the rest of the band would do gigs as Dynamo Hum, adding Marcel Wierckx as Reibling's replacement and still doing gigs as a cover band. Both The Shivers and Dynamo Hum existed concurrently for a while. Eventually, Dynamo Hum broke away from Reibling. Then to complete the evolution, Dynamo Hum became all-original act Friction Love Corps.
Friction Love Corps eventually released an independent album of original material titled Smoked BBQ Salmon.
The band eventually broke up but Glen Davies and Chris Weighell maintained a relationship and in 2001, decided to form a new band called Blush with Paulo Netta and Adam Winters. They recorded a debut CD, Crowded Alone, which they released in 2004 and was produced by Juno award-winning producer Brandon Friesen, and a single from that album, Word From Wise, received airplay on Winnipeg rock station Power 97.
