Vancouver photographer Graeme Foote took some psycho photos of Toronto psychobilly band The Creepshow featuring Sarah “Sin” Blackwood, on tour for their 2010 album They All Fall Down. The Hypnophonics and Rude City Riot open (see galleries below).

The Creepshow formed in Toronto in 2005. Members include Sean “Sick Boy” McNab (stand-up bass/vox), The Reverend McGinty (sermons/organ/vox) and Matt “Pomade” Gee (drums). Their lyrics, at least superficially, draw inspiration from b-movies and early horror films. Their live show has been called “eye-scorching”, at least on the band’s own website.

The orginal singer was Jen “Hellcat” Blackwood, but when she became pregnant, her sister Sarah took over to pursue life in psychobilly. But, uhm, the group would prefer to be known as a punk rock band, plain and simple. At least according to this interview with Blackwood.
