The Cads:

The Biffs:
Those zany teenage sensations (at least in their own minds) from Scarborough, that brought teen angst and Fluffernutter to the Beverley Tavern and asked the musical question "Is It All Art?"!/pages/The-Biffs-Toronto/178347302185791
land of giants:
"Three talls and a girl"... and what a girl, the former Miss General Idea herself (and president of The Dishes Fan Club) Anya Varda. This quartet managed to make it into Pitchfork 28 years after their original single was released.
Carole Pope:
The Dishes were Carole Pope and Rough Trade's regular opening act during their residency at the Chimney (upstairs from the Gasworks) in the summer of 1977.
Keith Whittaker:
The Demics' Keith Whittaker of New York City infamy and the Dishes' Steven Davey collaborated on a number of songs in the early 90's. They were released on CD in 2007 11 years after Whittaker's tragic death.
