Trouble Boys (rock)

In 1982 guitarist Tim Gibbons left Hamilton, Ontario band The Shakers to form his own group The Trouble Boys with ex-Slander drummer Ray Farrugia and bass player Mike Williams. The band was short-lived and recorded their only album, ‘Pass the Bottle, Baby’ in a single 13-hour recording session. It was released on their own Booze Records label in 1985; Gibbons went on to be a session player of some renown including work on the Billy-Bob Thornton movie ‘Slingblade’) and occasionally reunites with his former band The Shakers and sits in with The Dave Rave Group. He released a solo album on the Cowboy Junkies’ Latent Recordings label entitled ‘Trail of Smoke’ in 2011; Williams would go on to work with Tom Wilson and Cadillac Bill. He now plays in the Hellbent Rockers. - Jaimie Vernon, The Canadian Pop Music Encyclopedia
