Les Georges Leningrad were known for their extravagant stage costumes, including masks in particular. They frequently gave contradictory, incomprehensible or ludicrous answers to interviewers' questions. They have been elected twice "freakiest local act" by the readers of the weekly newspaper Montreal Mirror.
Les Georges Leningrad formed in 1999 in Montreal. The members took turns at bass, keyboard, guitar, drums and vocals, sometimes using a drum machine. The band originally consisted of four members; they were reduced to a trio with the departure of bassist Toundra LaLouve after their first album was released. The band produced several albums, 2002'a including Sur les Traces de Black Eskimo in 2004.
In 2007 the band created the score for Asparagus: A Horticultural Ballet, which was performed at Conway Hall in London, England.
After announcing in early 2007 on their MySpace page that they had broken up, Les Georges Leningrad now say that they may play more shows sometime in the future.
