There's a lot going on with Toronto indie label Arts & Crafts, the record company that brought us Broken Social Scene, Feist, the Stills, Stars, Zeus, Jason Collett and Dan Mangan, among others. The label is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a compilation album, as well as a summer concert that will feature a reunion by the band that started it all, Broken Social Scene.
To help celebrate, we've put together an infographic to show the creative span of this supergroup. The band has had more than 20 members who have formed their own bands, and in some cases those bands have featured members of other notable acts. To emphasize the collective nature of the scene, we've also included several members who simply collaborated on recordings. For instance, KC Accidental was Kevin Drew and Charles Spearin's band, but their recordings feature at least seven other BSS members.
Oh, and if you're curious, BSS is only two degrees removed from Kevin Bacon.
