In the late spring of 1982 an electro-pop band from Canada calling themselves land of giants released an independent 12" single called Cannibal Dolls / Seven Men. land of giants featured the talents of Henryck Jesiak, John Tucker, Anya Varda and Marc Wonnacott. The single went on to receive respectable radio play on college radio (where it reached #1) and on alternative radio stations. John Peel even played it on his BBC show, according to a friend who phoned me long distance from a call box in the UK the night he heard it.
After it’s initial success as a dance floor hit, that original single has garnered a small but extremely loyal following around the world, and little did the band know they would be considered pioneers of the "Cold Wave/ Minimal Electronic" scene. Prices for the original 12inch single have reached almost $300US on ebay! All this and land of giants has never played a live gig! Over the years we have had requests from fans for a CD and for more songs. There were a number of demo recordings made between 1982 and 1985 that were never released and these make up the collection featured on the CD. The long awaited land of giants CD, cannibal dolls/seven men is now available!
land of giants can be found on Instagram, Facebook and YouTube!
Cannibal Dolls is also featured on the ARC collection, "Cold Waves Minimal Electronics Vol.1" and was featured in and episode of Dietland.
John Tucker who engineered the original material has painstakingly re mastered the single along with nine other unreleased songs. He has now achieved this to his satisfaction, so you can steam it from your favourite streaming site, Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, etc. You can also download it from you favourite download site, ITunes, Bandcamp, Napster, Amazon, CD Baby etc. If you need to own a physical copy, you can order your CD from us (see below).
