History[edit]

In 1986, the band Schizophrenic Muff Divers was formed by four high school (Gérard-Filion) students from Longueuil, Québec. A year later the band changed its name to Groovy Aardvark in order to facilitate its plans of becoming a serious rock band. They released three cassette tape demos before releasing their first album, Eater's Digest, in 1994. Although all of the members spoke French natively, most of the songs were in English. This album, along with a two-month tour marked the beginning of their popularity in Québec.
