"January 2008"

“Catchy indie-pop songs that are as addicting as they are interesting.” - Dayton Daily News

"January 2008"

“Monster powerpop choruses a la Weezer or Superchunk.” - The Buddha Den

"August 2007"

“The band seems to stumble onto hooks without trying, or more accurately, despite trying not to… They pride themselves on the fact that they have something to say.”

- Hero Hill

"June 2007"

“A very promising band… biting and irreverent wordplay… peculiarly appealing.” - Lost at Sea

"November 2006"

“Some really well-developed music with a melancholy, biting humor... The lyrics are all pretty intimate, dealing with loan sharks and over indulging in modern convenience and living needlessly complex lives, and taking on the corporate mono-culture and evangelical Christians... These guys are a blast.” - Sceneless

"August 2008"

"It screams Pavement. It recalls Dismemberment Plan and the better years of The Talking Heads. But, thankfully, it recalls mostly FOX Japan." - Daily Athenaeum

FOX Japan (the name has nothing to do with the TV network, although the coincidence is amusing) has existed under various names since 1993, although its members' average age is still only 24. It's now a long-distance band, however. Andrew, Sam, and Pete live in Morgantown, West Virginia, where they work at a hospital, mental health settings, and a non-profit, respectively; Charlie is a grad student in music composition at the University of California - San Diego.

The band has repeatedly toured the East Coast and Midwest, playing venues such as Lit Lounge in New York; 8x10 in Baltimore; the Fire in Philadelphia; The Red & the Black, DC9 and the Velvet Lounge in Washington DC; the Church and Bela Dubby in Cleveland; Merlin's in Buffalo; and Cal's in Chicago.
