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!
Today the Lowest of the Low released two new songs. Ron wants you to have these free new tracks! Take them. Download them. Email them your friends.
THE KIDS ARE ALL WRONG and IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE were written by Ron Hawkins, performed by David Alexander, Ron Hawkins, Brian MacMillan, Lawrence Nichols and Dylan Parker and were recorded with the help of Joe Dunphy at the sublime Revolution Recording in Toronto in October, 2015.

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
On the same day Ron and the Do Good Assassins’ new album Garden Songs is released, a brand new video for Peace and Quiet surfaces. We’ve posted it here. The video is directed by Richard Peirce and Chris Tait.
