    TORONTO, Jan. 24 /CNW/ - Legendary Canadian rock group, Lowest of the Low
will be inducted into the Indies Hall of Fame on Saturday, March 8th as part
of the 8th Annual Independent Music Awards. Presented by, "The
Indies" celebrate outstanding achievement in sound recording and live
    Lowest of the Low, recognized by hits such as "Motel 30", "Eternal
Fatalist", "Salesmen, Cheats & Liars" and "Bleed A Little While Tonight", are
identified as one of the groups responsible for Toronto's independent music
explosion of the early '90s. This came to an end as the band called it quits
after the release of their sophomore album Hallucigenia.
    CD sales still continued at a steady pace, with Shakespeare My Butt
landing solidly at No. 6 on Chart Magazine's Top Canadian Albums of All Time
and 84th in Bob Mersereau's "The Top 100 Canadian Albums". The band reunited
again to play some reunion shows, leading to two cross-Canada tours and a live
album, Nothing Short of a Bullet (2002).
    In 2004, the Low dropped their first studio album, Sordid Fiction (2004),
in 10 years and toured extensively across Canada and throughout the U.K., with
frequent U.S. spots.
    The group played the Grey Cup Festival in 2007, followed by a performance
at the Horseshoe Tavern's 60th Anniversary celebration in Toronto. In
December, they played their final performance at a sold-out Club Infinity in
Buffalo. Marking over a decade of making music together, The Lowest of the Low
will reunite for an encore performance of fan favourites at The Indies,
commemorating their induction into the Indies Hall of Fame.
    The 2008 Indies will include performances by the New Pornographers, Tokyo
Police Club, Besnard Lakes, Young Galaxy, Attack in Black and The Cliks.
    Tickets are $30 and may be purchased online at the Rogers MusicStore
