The Useless Tools were discovered at the bottom of a rusty toolbox in 2005. They are: Flathead, the bent screwdriver, guitar and vocals; Schizo, the dull scissors, drums and vocals; and Rusty, the rusty precision calipers, bass and vocals. They are produced by eccentric billionaire recluse, Paul Morgan Donald in his mansion/studio in the hills over Edmonton.
