They Shoot Horses Don't They is an 8 piece band from Vancouver, BC
Canada. Their debut album

?Boo Hoo Hoo Boo? is being released on Kill Rock Stars on February 21st, 2006.  Their startling

energetic live shows have won them listeners and even dancers throughout Canada where they have

shared the stage with bands like The Unicorns and Xiu Xiu. They have a distinctive noisy oompa sound

thanks to a horn section. The band has been compared to the likes of The Danielson Family, Captain

Beefheart and Thinking Fellers Local 242.  Lyrical themes of desperation, betrayal and hardship are

brought to interesting light in this overly joyful jittery music.

?They Shoot Horses, Don?t They? sound like post-punks raised under a big top, albeit one under the

direction of Igor Stravinsky or Sun Ra rather than P.T. Barnum? Boston Phoenix

?It's not that often you come across a band that puts a shit-eating grin on your face so wide that you're

able to swallow all the bullshit and lies and deceptions of the 21st century?? Popmatters.com
