History

1982–1984

Psyche was formed by brothers Darrin and Stephen Huss in Edmonton, Alberta. The band's debut performance was on December 13, 1982 with Dwayne Goettel on additional keyboards.

By 1983 the band name had officially become Psyche named after the B-Side of Killing Joke's "Wardance" single as well as being chosen for the meaning of the word. The first demo of songs contained the titles "Screaming Fire", "Wrench", " A Threat", and "Torture". When Psyche performed, they practically challenged the audience with the concept of what "entertainment" should be. Darrin became renowned for performing nude (except for being covered in shaving cream) while talk singing and shouting over the noises and sequences of his brother and Dwayne's. The performance idea was inspired by pictures seen of Fad Gadget in British Music magazines.
