The alternative pop/rock group known simply as Made formed in Toronto, Canada, around the beginning of the '90s. Members were lead singer and guitarist Jason Taylor, guitarist Simon Bedford-James, drummer Alison McLean, and bassist John Bowker. Keeping a bassist didn't prove an easy task for Made. Along the way Bowker was replaced by Scott Fairbrother, who was later replaced by Frank Guidoccio. Each of the members added backing vocals, and brought plenty of experience to the formation.
Made appeared on the club circuit in Toronto around 1994. Word of mouth quickly spread information about the group and resulted in a ready-made fan base. That same year members recorded two independent albums, Rumball and Big Bother. The efforts left Made deep in debt, but also landed it a deal with Universal Records. It was three long years before their next album, Bedazzler, hit the market. It was followed by the release of the lead track, "Hairdown," as both a single and a music video. A few of the other tunes from Made are "Smudge," "Hippies," "Half an Hour," "Joanne," and "On Fire." ~ Charlotte Dillon
