Blurtonia was a Canadian indie rock group, formed in May 1999 to play live shows in support of the well-received self-released debut Adventures in the Kingdom of Blurtonia, co-produced by Daryl Smith whose credits include Sloan, Tricky Woo, and Godspeed You! Black Emperor.
In addition to Adventures, Blurtonia released one other self-titled album released on Grenadine Records in 2002. At the time, the band was composed of Ian Blurton (ex-Change of Heart) on guitar and vox, Al Kelso (ex-The Dinner Is Ruined) on guitar, Randy Curnew (ex-Ursula/Cash Brothers) on drums, Sam De Medeiros bass, and Brendan Canning, Kevin Drew (Broken Social Scene) on bass. Before their last cross-Canada tour in September 2002, Eric Larock (Tricky Woo) filled in on bass.
- Jon McCann (ex 13 Engines, Guided by Voices) played drums in the original line-up and on the second record before departing to play with Guided By Voices full-time.
