Rough Trade was a Canadian new wave rock band in the 1970s and 1980s, centred on singer Carole Pope and multi-instrumentalist Kevan Staples. The band was noted for their provocative lyrics and stage antics; singer Pope often performed in bondage attire, and their 1981 hit "High School Confidential" was one of the first explicitly lesbian-themed Top 40 hits in the world.
The band began in 1968 in Toronto, when Carole Pope (vocals, guitars) and Kevan Staples (keyboards, guitars) began performing in a folk group known as "O". Their musical partner in this venture was Clive Smith.
In 1970, Smith left the group and Pope and Staples changed their name to "The Bullwhip Brothers",performing as a largely acoustic duo at Toronto art festivals and at private events. In 1973 they called themselves Rough Trade and added percussionist Chris Faulkner
