With the release of the Low’s dual singles, Ron’s friends at Resonator caught the recording process on camera. The clip for “The Kids Are All Wrong” takes viewers into the studio with the band, where they were “pounding on drums, slashing guitar chords and screaming into microphones” over the course of two days.
The behind-the-scenes footage is just a sneak peek at a mini-documentary project that’s in the works. But before the full details are revealed, let the anticipation build by watching the video for “The Kids Are All Wrong” below.
The toggle switch that signals the Lowest of the Low exists is thrown all the way to ON!

The Low are back, and look forward to seeing you out there soon.
For those of you who love music and love documentaries, mockumentaries and shockumentaries, check out this teaser below for the upcoming web series about defunct Femme Folk agitpropsters The Maidstones.
It was made by none other than Ron’s better half Ms. Jill Riley and has a star studded cast with the likes of Elvira Kurt, Andrew Scott (Sloan), Oh Susanna, Tyler Stewart (BNL), Jan Arden and even a certain member of Lowest of the Low.
The official website of the Maidstones can be found at www.themaidstones.com .
Okay, We’re a little prejudiced here, but Ron’s song Peace & Quiet, currently sitting at #10 on CBC Radio 2’s chart, should really be sitting at #1, shouldn’t it?
It’s the best song on the chart…c’mon…admit it.
Let’s make it number one. Vote for it right HERE
