Once upon the late 1990s, before the internet made the world a smaller place, in the isolation of a tiny mining town called Kirkland Lake, a group of kids got together and called themselves The Deefons. Shane came from Swank and Cragmatic Pope. YeTI, Ty and Marco came from Harem. They were named for the family of imaginary friends that one member had as a child. The imaginary Deefons lived in a pile of hay down the alley sometime in the early 1980s. The musical Deefons recorded two albums. "Clippings From The Edge of The Road" was recorded in August 1998 in a small basement studio using the $1200 they had made playing in a bar before the most of them were old enough to be there. "Sunset" was recorded by Ryan (of Cragmatic Pope and Groundstate) in his basement in August 1999 with a 4-track and a couple of Pentium (1) computers. Since 2009 much of their music has been available for free online.

The Theme Song (Instrumental)
Meant to sound like cartoon theme song. Was the theme for Ronnie Rodent's morning show on pirate radio station Radio Xanadu in the UK.
Two Sides To Every Face
Spent a couple of weeks in the KIAC big 50, first song played on Dungeon Radio, featured on Ronnie Rodent's best of 2009 broadcast part 1, and recently featured on Campground Pirate Radio. See side bar to check out broadcast.
Hardcore Love Song
The song with the girl singing. Made it to semi-final in 2009 Year of the Indie open song contest in Punk\Emo\Ska. Much dirty sexy love to anyone who voted for it.
Just tell the truth about what's inside and you will find.
Steak and Potatoes
My teenage angst at full tilt and as far as I know the only song of ours to be covered. Check out Hazymind’s live cover here: https://soundcloud.com/user-930667564/deefons-cover-live
