Dale Morningstar

Dale Morningstar is a Toronto-based Canadian rock musician and recording engineer and producer, originally from Chippawa, Ontario. Morningstar was the founding member of The Dinner Is Ruined, an avant-garde rock band based in Toronto in the early 1990s. The band was known for an unconventional approach to music, Morningstar once even playing the stationary bicycle live at Massey Hall. Dale Morningstar, however, is perhaps best known for co-founding The Gas Station Recording studio, which has been called "the hub of the Canadian indie rock sound" with Don Kerr in 1990. The studio started off in his basement apartment in an old Liberty Street warehouse (by King and Dufferin). They quickly outgrew the space and moved around the corner to 53 Fraser Avenue. After over 7 years at the Fraser Ave. location Morningstar received an eviction notice on March 30, 2000. He and other musicians, colleagues and friends staged a demonstration and circulated posters opposing the eviction.
