I Mother Earth got their start in Toronto in the early ’90s. Grunge was king back then, and the band, which featured brothers Jagori Tanna (guitar) and Christian Tanna (drums) and vocalist Edwin, definitely fit into that genre.
The band released two albums — Dig (1993) and Scenery and Fish (1996) — before Edwin embarked on a solo career. Two more albums followed with Brian Byrne as lead vocalist — Blue Green Orange (1999) and The Quicksilver Meat Dream in 2003 — before the band went on hiatus.
I Mother Earth got back together in 2012. And while they haven’t recorded any more albums, they have released a couple of singles.
On Saturday Oct. 8 I Mother Earth is in town to play a show at Casino Regina. Tickets are $35, and to give you a sense of what they sound like now here’s the audio for their 2015 single “The Devil’s Engine”:
