The Bloody Five’s rendition of “(I Wanna Go To) New York City” is a modern take on a Canadian punk classic. The song was originally written by The Demics, formed in London, Ontario in 1977. Lead singer Keith Whittaker was originally from Manchester, England, explaining the band’s markedly English punk inspiration and sound. The band moved to Toronto to be closer to the punk scene, adding to the already vibrant blend of influences from the UK, the New York underground punk scene and something quintessentially Canadian. “New York City” was their breakout single, getting airplay on CFNY “The Spirit of Radio” in the station’s early days. Chart Magazine (now Chart Attack) named the song “the best Canadian single of all time”, and The Bloody Five continue the song’s journey to iconic Canadian musical status.
