Jeff Stoddard

Early life[edit]

Jeff Stoddard was born in Windsor, Nova Scotia on Dec 14th 1973. Jeff was then moved, at a very young age, by his mother Heather Stoddard to live in various hippy communes all over North America. This lasted until he was 9 years old and was obviously a very profound experience in his formative years.[1] He eventually returned to Canada and was moved to Kamloops British Columbia where he attended elementary and Senior High School. Stoddard stated that he spent most of his time "being an asshole" and listening to punk rock and heavy metal music. Among others, he credits Bad Brains, Black Sabbath and Black Flag as his favourite bands, and the most substantial influence on his musical development and career.[2]

Recording career[edit]

His sonic experiments started early on when he began hooking up model trail transformers to tape recorders to alter record and playback speeds. He played in some punk rock Bands like BlackHeart and the Punishers.

Sometime around 1990 he relocated to Vancouver and joined the band Will with Rhys Fulber, John McRae and Chris Peterson. Together they released the album Pearl of Great Price.

The following year he worked with Front Line Assembly on their record, Caustic Grip[3]

Then he, John McRae and Chris Peterson moved into Skinny Puppy's (at that time) Vancouver based recording Studio Subconscious Communications to write and record the tracks found on Decree's first release, Wake of Devastation.

He then re-emerged working under the name Roughhausen and has released 4 or 5 albums under that name. Most recently he has been touring the United States with each Roughhausen release. 2011 saw two US Roughhausen tours

2012 saw yet another US tour this one primarily in the East coast in support of the Roughhausen CD "Throb" That tour entitled The Cry Havoc tour [4] included dates with Chilean industrial metal band Vigilante [5]
