Charles Spearin

The recent proliferation of moustaches has made its mark on the interwebs and indie music for sure— that’s no secret. Charles Spearin (Do Make Say Think and Broken Social Scene) is an integral part of the meme, having moustached long before it was even ironic.

Stylistically, Spearin’s moustache is a well-placed design element. The pushbroom highlights a healthy smile, anchors his face with a flourish of goldenrod, provides a little extra lip protection for long stints of blowing brass and is a cornerstone of the Toronto music scene.

You can check out Spearin’s trademark mo on tour this March or buy his new album.
