CV/History

Formed in October of 1988 when two security guards Paul "Snappy" McGrannite & Dan "Cakes" Druff met at Reimer Express Lines trucking yard in Burnaby B.C., Canada and began writing songs on keyboards pertaining to the security job to kill time over their 12 hour shifts.
Songs like "Walk that beat" and "Cat burgalar" quickly gave way to comedy routines interspersed with more introspective songs like "Life in general" and "Seek the truth" on their debut album, "The Master key". The mischievous pair recorded the songs secretly while pretending to work in a little guard office known as "The Shack". ..A third member Philip R.C. Carey joined the group when making his vocal debut on "Long live the shack" on the "Southern Biff" album in January of 1989. SECURITY recorded two more albums at Reimer, "Back To The Shack" and "Security4" before losing the contract and the shack! In late 1989, SECURITY alternated between Tree Tops Studios and P.M.T.I., both in North Vancouver to record their followup " Blanket". After designing 5 album covers for SECURITY, Philip R.C. Carey left the group. SECURITY, now back to the original 2 members recorded their next album "Personal Limit" exclusively at Tree Tops. The album featured guitar for the first time on the tracks "Never Fade Away" and "Good Times" as a friend of Snappy's,"Tuna" made appearances... In 1990, SECURITY recorded their first collection of favorite tracks from the previous albums, "Classic". In the summer of 1990, SECURITY began work on their most experimental track to date, "Papa Bear Discipline" with Snappy's room mate at Tree Tops, Ben "Papa Bear" Williams. On the same album, "Briefs" a friend of Cakes, "Muffins" formerly of "The s" joined the group on guitar for his debut on "Fallen Guards". SECURITY
oke up twice during the next album,"Alert" once in late 1990 and again in early 1991. Between the two
eak ups, a new room mate of Snappy's at Tree Tops, musician "Jim Gault" joined SECURITY on a few tracks including "She Knows" and "Kodiak Attack", which featured Williams again on vocals and a surprise appearance by Philip R.C. Carey for one of the most memorable fun nights at Tree Tops. .. Reformed in August 1991 with the album 10 at 707 Studio near Lougheed mall in Burnaby,the first 5 tracks on the album featured "Tuna" as a member of the group on guitar before a quick unexpected departure. "Muffins" rejoined on guitar soon after with the track "Four Wheels". Other Notable tracks on the album included "Places to be","Motion Lotion", "Dream Of Change" and "My Time Is Now." In November 1991 SECURITY left 707 for a new home, Cherrywood studios in South Burnaby, also home to "Cakes." The album "Death,Taxes & Tommy Hunter was their first full length at Cherrywood. It included tracks, "Turn It Around", "Your Day", "Leave Love Alone" and the original "Evil Youth" with Snappy initiating the idea for SECURITY to go thrash! In January,1992 SECURITY returned with "In The Vain Of Always Something"(a famous Snappy quote when things would go wrong). Memorable tracks included "Where You Belong", "Is It Me?", "Free Love" and the ELP cover "From The Beginning" which caught the attention and respect of those who listened. ..In the summer of 1992 SECURITY came back with "Stuff The Pants", apparently something singer Tom Jones was accused of doing by former NFL football running back legend, Jim Brown. The album featured "Jealous Kind","Misunderstood", Beatles cover, "If I Fell", Muffins vocal debut on "Who's To Blame" with Cake's
other "Piggy" guesting for the first time on backing vocals. "Age Gracefully", a respectful song for the seniors was a standout track from Snappy as well as "The Stand" a Floydish track that featured solid solo work from "Tuna"on guitar. ..In January 1993 Cakes began laying down numerous vocal tracks for "The Changing Of The Guard". Snappy went on a vocal strike for the album, singing only on the track "Overhand". The album contained tracks such as "Dark Angel", "Can
