Kids On TV is basically a three piece from Toronto, Canada with a bunch of frequent guest musicians, and this is their debut full-length release. They explore the worlds of punk, no-rave, electro, booty house and experimental rock. Their output includes, but is by no means limited to, musical recordings, musical performances, film, dance videos, rock opera collaborations, graffiti, crafting, and live "sleep-ins" in ritzy Toronto bars. They reference many elements of queer history and the artists who inspire them. Kids On TV transform environments with projections of their film and video work. A good first insight in the band's humor and social embedding (Hidden Cameras, Lesbians On Ecstasy, Gentlemen Reg, etc.) is revealed in the video to their smash-hit "Breakdance Hunx," which is also included on this CD. Kids On TV are not only an intriguing band, they create a show like no other, with breakdancing in the audience, call and response and audience members dancing on stage. Their first on stage appearances in Europe 2006 were frenetically celebrated and managed to transfer the enthusiasm of their Canadian/American fanbase, everywhere they appeared. Mixing Business With Pleasure was recorded and produced by Kids On TV in Toronto between 2003 and 2006 on a busted laptop and two microphones. The album was mastered by the amazing Kramer, founder of Shimmy Disc (Galaxy 500, GWAR, etc.).
