The Unicorns were an indie pop band from Montreal, Canada.
The Unicorns were originally formed in December 2000 by Nicholas Thorburn (stage name Nick "Neil" Diamonds, married to Hillary Stone, a small girl from a small town, as well as a host of other aliases) and Alden Penner (stage name, Alden Ginger; Elvis Presley's fiancÃ©e when he died was Ginger Alden). They were later joined by drummer Jamie Thompson (stage name J'aime Tambeur) and Max Groadie ("the American Roadie, nÃ© Bill Horwood").
The band self-released their debut album Unicorns Are People Too in March 2003 through their own record label Caterpillars of the Community, with a limited press run of 500 copies.
In October of the same year they went back into the studio, recording several new songs as well as reworking a number of songs from their debut. The resulting second album, Who Will Cut Our Hair When We're Gone?, was released in November 2003 on the label Alien8 Recordings, and was a notable departure for a label that has traditionally released albums by Avant-Garde and highly experimental artists such as Acid Mothers Temple...
