Around the same time iconic Canadian sketch group Kids in the Hall were founded, Scott Thompson was also one half of queer punk duo Mouth Congress. The other member of the group was Paul Bellini, who was a writer on Kids in Hall and occasionally appeared on-screen as well. (He was usually wearing a towel.) Here's a little more background on the group:
In November 1984, Paul Bellini rented a beatbox and started jamming in the basement with guitarist Rob Rowatt, bass player Gord Disley, and fellow York University alumni Scott Thompson. Their early recording sessions produced dozens of experimental songs with challenging lyrics. Two years later, The Kids In The Hall's Bruce McCulloch asked the band to open for him at storied Toronto club the Rivoli, where The Kids In The Hall performed regularly.
Utilizing Brian Hiltz's existing band I Want, they performed a memorable set and several months later decided to record a 7-song cassette entitled For People Only. The sessions occurred just five days before Thompson moved to New York City to begin writing the first season of The Kids In The Hall. Unfortunately, the band was too lazy to officially release the cassette.
