Before Broken Social Scene, there was K.C Accidental. Headed by Kevin Drew and Charles Spearin, they released their debut album, Captured Anthems for an Empty Bathtub in 1998. The songs were ambient, with long buildups characteristic of post-rock. They released their second album, Anthems That Could Have Been Pills in 2003, with from contributions from members of the Canadian Indie scene including Emily Haines. Anthems That Could Have Been Pills, features a more mature approach to instrumentals, with repetitious chord progressions and experimentation with various fills, taking their time to build perfectly soothing soundscapes. The album is a good indicator where Broken Social Scene is headed towards musically.
