Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet was a Canadian instrumental rock band with a strong surf influence, formed in 1984. The band members were: Don Pyle on drums, Brian Connelly on guitar, and Reid Diamond on bass, who died in 2001. They released a string of EPs and singles throughout the 1980s and early 1990s, achieving some success, but remain perhaps best-known for the track "Having an Average Weekend", which was used as the theme song to The Kids in the Hall.
Their unique style was retro, dark and innovate. As you'll understand after hearing certain pieces of their work, some came to label Shadowy Men a surf band. To make it clear they were not a surf band, Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet released a song entitled "We Are Not a F***ing Surf Band."
