First formed in the early 80's as a quartet, the pursuit of original composition was always at the forefront. Now reunited as a duo, Todd Stones and Dino X have forged ahead to assault the mainstream with their own brand of sonic adventure.
Transcending the boundaries of the imagination, frontman keyboardist Todd Stones churns out the hypnotic melody, while guitarist Dino X expands the envelope of the soundscape.

Why this name?
We basically wanted something cryptic. Humans are generally intrigued by the unknown, good or bad. Some of the names tossed around at the time were Egyptian Icefishermen, and Hesitant Hostess, but we finally settled on Asian Icemen. It stuck... like permafrost.
Do you play live?
Our band did perform live in and around the Montreal area during the 80's, and we hope to do so again in the near future. Our notable haunts were Ste. Anne's Day, Kirkland Day, Station 10, The SOS Club, and the Spectrum. Performing live is always a rush. A headlong plunge into the abyss. Best moment? SOS Club, 1984. Our bassist, Keith, did the show in a kilt sans shit-knicks. Apparently he's well endowed and scared off 2 girl sitting up front when he leaped onto their table. We received a great reviews for that show, and the Underground finally understood that we meant business.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It has completely changed the game. Back in the day, studio time (with half-decent equipment) would run anywhere between 200 to 500 dollars an hour. A limited run of demo tapes could cost thousands. Today, anyone with any intellectual curiosity, and a budget of 2000 to 5000 dollars can record, mix, and master very good quality sound in the comfort of their own home. Basically, it has been a God-send for the musical spirit.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Nothing is impossible.
Band History:
The original core, Todd and Dino, met in college in the early 80's. Quickly, we expanded to a quartet, adding a drummer (Vince) and a bassist. Bassist chores changed hands during the initial period, and we played in and around the Montreal area steadily until 1985 when Dino left to serve in the Armed Forces. The band performed one more show at the Spectrum, and then disbanded.
Fast forward a few (25!) years, Dino and Todd, by the grace of social media, reconnect. Todd, the mastermind of this whole adventure, is still as musically precocious as ever. Dino, always the gear junkie, is (and always has been) seeking new ways to make the electric guitar envelope the senses. Melody, rhythm, and soundscape. Nirvana.
Equipment used:
Todd is old-school. Sequential Circuits synth, Yamaha analog symphonic, and a bag of peanuts. Dino will run digital, analog, hammer and pick. Whatever it takes to get the right feel. Computers, drum machines, and any other inorganic entities round out the rest.
