Welcome to the Vee Gates musical archive!
"How's it goin'?"
The band's name "Vee Gates" means "How's it going" in German. Though, it is written "Wie geht's?" From that cool play
on words, you will get the essence of the Vee Gates band that had its early
origins in Chemical Valley in Sarnia, Ontario Canada!
A band with a name like that has to be a bit nuts!
The Vee Gates was an underground band, first formed in London, Ontario in
1985 that hit the Montreal scene in the summer of 1986. The original three
members hailed from the home of Chemical Valley, Sarnia, Ontario. The music was
standard bass, drum, and guitar and usually had a dark literary edge to many of
the songs (i.e. Valley of Fear,
Study in Scarlet,
Sign of 4). The group disbanded in 1988.
The last song ever recorded was Radioactive
Man in the spring of 1989 when an obscure member named "Sci-Fi Man"
joined the band for a local radio contest in Montreal.
contains all of the band's history, members info, music, pictures, and funny
stories to boot!
Be warned: this site is full of old cheapo recordings done on tape
recorders that you would find now in junk stores and pawn shops. Though, the band did progress
to the 4-track studio of François Dubeau in the later recordings.
VEE GATES VIRTUAL STORY is slowly
being constructed! Hey, Rome wasn't built in a day! hehe
