Best known as vocalist and guitar player for The Weakerthans, John K. Samson played bass in Propagandhi from 1991 until 1996, when he formed The Weakerthans with John Sutton and Jason Tait. He also did some solo recordings in the early 90's, which were released by G7 Welcoming Committee Records in 1995 (re-released in digital form in 2006). Little known is John's greatest achievement to date - that of his time spent as co-editor (with Todd Scarth) of PLAP = Crap, an obscure but culturally revolutionary periodic publication in circulation in the early 90's. Copies currently sell on eBay for upwards of $1200 US, and are sought by underground publishing afficianados worldwide.

John currently lives in Winnipeg with his wife Christine.
