Crash Test Dummies

Biography

Canadian alterna-artists hit the big time with "Superman's Song" in 1993, a radio-polished hybrid of R.E.M.-inspired folk-rock and David Byrne-inspired absurdism. The 1999 single "Keep a Lid on Things" found them moving away from their previous sound and taking a more experimental approach, with Tom Waits-esque funkiness and murky atmospheres beefing up their countrified acoustic song structures and vocalist Brad Roberts' subhuman baritone.
