Men Without Hats
Men Without Hats was a Canadian pop group from Montreal, Quebec who were popular in the early 1980s. They were characterized by the deep, expressive vocals of their lead singer Ivan and their elaborate use of synthesizers and electronic processing. Men Without Hats were always, at the core, Ivan Doroschuk (also released solo as Ivan) and his brother Stefan Doroschuk, with various other members, including a third brother, Colin Doroschuk, as well as Jeremy Arrobas, tracy howe, Roman Martyn and Allan McCarthy. Emerged in the early 1980s with an EP called Folk of The 80s (1980), but erupted onto the international scene a couple of years later with their hit single "The Safety Dance" (from Rhythm of Youth). The band lasted as such into the early 90s and released four more albums. After a few years Ivan returned solo with the album The Spell in 2000 and in 2003 returned to the MWOH moniker and the self released album No Hats Beyond This Point.
