Battered Wives was a punk rock band from Toronto during the late 1970s.

Battered Wives consisted of Toby Swann (guitar and vocals), Larry "Jasper" Klassen (bass and vocals), John Gibb (guitar) and Cleave Anderson (drums), and released their first album (eponymous) in 1978. This album was the one from which most of their hits come. Such are 'Daredevil', 'Suicide,' Lover's Balls,' 'Freedom Fighters,' and perhaps their best known hit, 'Uganda Stomp (Bomp Idi Bomp)', that poked fun at Ugandan dictator Idi Amin.

Their second album came out in 1979. It was called Cigarettes and apparently also demonstrated that they had acquiesced to complaints from the public, because their name was shortened to merely 'Wives' for this album. One song from this album is 'New Wave Robot,' and while this album had some following, it had not nearly as much as the one from the previous year. This album won a Juno for best record design.

They then released Live On Mother's Day in 1980, inserting the 'Battered' back into their name. Then, the group broke up, each member going his own way. Anderson worked with Blue Rodeo, replaced by Patrick Mooney. Upon breakup, Swann went solo, releasing a cover of the Judy Garland hit 'Over The Rainbow' on his 1981 album Lullabies In Razorland. Klassen is still working as recording artist in Toronto.

Some things that made this band stand out were :

   1. The picture of a woman's lips with a fist imprinted on it as their logo, and
   2. The number of groups that kept protesting at concerts about the band's name and what it apparently advocated.

We do not mark up our shipping or charge for packing. We include the Canada Post calculator for your convenience for Canada and The USA. We have encountered lengthy delays shipping items overseas at the surface rate. In some cases it has taken four months to reach some countries. Airmail takes 5 to 10 days and is highly recommended. It is usually about 18.00 Airmail to most overseas destinations for 2 LPs or  3 45 singles. After that the weight will exceed .5 kg. We will always combine shipping on multiple purchases! All our records are from our personal collection accumulated over the last 45 years. Most are in excellent to NM condition unless otherwise stated in the description.

We do not mark up or charge for packing. The rates shown in the calculator are Canada Post rates. Shipping is extra and to be determined after the auction (you can combine purchases to save on postage and have a look at www.canadapost.ca for an approximate postage rate). Auctions of over US$75 are subject to being shipped via registered mail with tracking - there is an extra cost for this. I am not responsible for unregistered items damaged or lost in the post. Purchasers have to contact me after the auction within 3 days with shipping address to calculate shipping to be added to the bid amount. We will not be responsible for items lost in the mail shipped overseas. Canada Post does not provide tracking capabilities for anything shipped internationally below the Expresspost rate. We usually ship within 24 hours of receiving payment.

Payment is expected within 7 days of auction close.
