LEN PhotoThe alternative pop/dance group LEN was formed in Toronto in 1991 by Marc "The Burger Pimp" Costanzo and his sister Sharon, initially to perform punk-pop-style music. However, an outside interest in hip-hop gradually crept into the group's style over the course of the EP and two full-length independent albums they issued from 1992-1996 (including 1996's Get Your Legs Broke). As time passed, LEN picked up new members, including D Rock, DJ Moves, and Planet Pea.
