Ninja High School is a positive hardcore dance-rap band from Toronto. We (coincidentally and unintentionally) have the same name as a comic book, which we're told is very nice.
We are Matt Collins (lyrical geniusing), Gregory Collins (grunge yelling), Star DT (complaints), Anna Cvitkovic (good times officer), Adrian Cvitkovic (press liason coordinator), and Steven Kado (advanced hyping).
Past/peripheral/spiritual members include Wolfgang Nessel (rug-cutting), Peter Thorne (enthusiasm + filling-in), Craig Dunsmuir (hooting + carrying on), and Slavoj Žižek (thanks for the ideas). You can email us. Press inquiries go here.

blocks "toronto is great!" compilation
The Toronto Is Great!! compilation is a persuasive document of the recent Toronto-based Positive Music Explosion. We have a track on there called "It's Gonna Be Us!", a different version of which is on our "We Win!" EP. We love Toronto and think that it is the greatest place in the entire world to reside in.
