Matters was a Canadianindie rock band from Guelph, Ontario. The band consisted of Tim Bruton (guitar/synth), Kyle Donnelly (bass), John O'Regan (lead vocals/guitar/keyboard) and Greg Santilly (drums). They played rock music that had elements of punk, dance, and art rock, and used multiple transitions and hooks rather than traditional verse/chorus song structures.
Formed in 2005 as The D'Urbervilles while the members were students at the University of Guelph, the band originally consisted of O'Regan, Bruton, Donnelly, and drummer C.L. Smith. Prior to Smith's departure, the band independently released their debut EP The D'Urbervilles, which reached No.37 on earshot!'s Canadian campus and community radio charts for the month of May 2006. The D'Urbervilles toured and recorded their debut album, We Are the Hunters, with replacement drummers Steve Hesselink and Adam Seward before selecting Santilly as a permanent member in the fall of 2007. We Are the Hunters was released on the Toronto label Out of This Spark on February 19, 2008 and hit No.13 on the earshot! charts for the month of March. The band completed work on their second full-length, although they have gone on record as saying it's unlikely to be released.
A tribe is viewed, historically or developmentally, as a social group existing before the development of, or outside, states. A tribe is a distinct people, dependent on their land for their livelihood, who are largely self-sufficient, and not integrated into the national society. It is perhaps the term most readily understood and used by the general public. Stephen Corry, director of Survival International, the world's only organisation dedicated to indigenous rights, has defined tribal people as "those which have followed ways of life for many generations that are largely self-sufficient, and are clearly different from the mainstream and dominant society". This definition, however, would not apply in countries in the Middle East such as Iraq, where the entire population is a member of one tribe or another and therefore tribalism itself is dominant and mainstream.
There are an estimated one hundred and fifty million tribal individuals worldwide, constituting around forty percent of indigenous individuals. However, although nearly all tribal people are also indigenous, there are some who are not indigenous to the areas where they live now.
In each series, Parry visits a number of remote tribes in such locales as the Himalayas, Ethiopia, West Papua, Gabon and Mongolia, spending a month living and interacting with each society. While there, Parry adopts the methods and practices of his hosts, participating in their rituals and exploring their cultural norms. This often enables him to form personal bonds with the members of each tribe.
Parry tries to learn the basics of the tribe's language but is also accompanied by a translator.
The series is co-produced by BBC Wales and the Discovery Channel. A second series aired in July 2006 and the third began on 21 August 2007 on BBC Two, and ended on 25 September 2007. No further series have been made, though Parry's 2008 series, Amazon has a similar synopsis.
Parry was awarded the BAFTA Cymru "Best On-Screen Presenter" award in 2008 for his work on the 'Penan' Episode. A BAFTA Cymru "Best Camera: Not Drama" award was also awarded for Gavin Searle's work in the same episode.
