"What's That Smell"

By Cody Daigle

The conventional wisdom goes like this: have a dream, chase the dream, realize the dream.

Sure, the idea is simple. The execution is the hard part.

Just ask Foul Stench of Youth.

Foul Stench of Youth, a three-piece rock outfit, has been hitting the pavement on the local music scene since 2004. Their sound is straightforward, driving rock, free of loopy hybrids and excessive experimentation. Their songs are spare, muscular constructions, heavy on guitar and heavy on guts.

After a yearlong hiatus, the band is returning to the local scene with a handful of upcoming gigs, and while they’ve got their musical act together, the band is still looking for its niche here in Acadiana’s music scene.

As these guys tell it, it’s a tough scene to navigate for a local band playing original music. And they should know — they’ve been doing it for five years.

But Foul Stench of Youth has a dream to chase, and as they return to the local grind, they’re chasing it with their distinct brand of crunching, powerful rock. - The Times of Acadiana


Times Have Changed - EP 2009



Renaldo and Graham met each other in August 2004 and instantly became friends as their first conversation at the local comic shop. "Renaldo played the End is Near for me at our first getting together and I loved it. Surfy rock I hadn't heard before that really caught my ear. I came up with a beat and the band was born. We played out first show after just 2 practices at a great bat called Changes here in Lafayette." -Slam
Things went well for that first year and a half as a 2-piece rock band but then Slam moved back to Scotland for and the band split up for 6 months. In January 2006 we got back together as the Codes with a bass player we knew. Things went okay for a while but again we went through some stuff and kinda slowed down for that year. The temporary bass player's life was impossible to work around our schedule so we went back to being a 2 piece. We've been gigging alot in 2009 and await a calling from a higher power.
