Feeling a bit camera shy


Here's the nitty gritty... Basically, Nobody's Favorite is a loud rock 'n' roll band. We don't fancy ourselves as "garage" rock. We are not "emo". And we sure as hell ain't a fuckin' jam band. We are rock 'n' roll to the fullest - loud, dirty, crude, primal, in your face and cranky. If you have seen us live, we believe you should know what the hell we're talking about. If you have not seen us live, we hope to play your city so you have the opportunity to do so. Nobody's Favorite was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan in the summer of 1999. The line-up originally consisted of chums Matt Helt on guitar, Eric Owns on guitar, Curt Prudden on bass and Josh Allen on drums. These four managed to release a full length and a handful of EPs (which have all sold out incidentally). This line-up also did a fun-filled west coast tour together. Curt Prudden then left to pursue a career in the tropics, citing irreconsilable differences with Michigan, leaving the three remaining NFers to go through a series of bass players until they found local asshole/heartbreaker/balladeer Rock 'n' Roll Gene. When Gene entered the mix, the sound changed a bit. The whole band indeed started to realize they were not happy campers. The songs became more intense and the shows became more forceful. Another west coast tour followed (sorry about that hotel room Las Vegas). Then Josh Allen quit the band to build the perfect recliner. So we looked for a drummer who could jive more with our wholesome grooves. That drummer was Nate Cohn. Nate, a veteran of several other respectable bands (respectable, yet not very cleanly), fit right in. Soon we were writing more songs and soon we would record them. April 2, 2005: Praise the Loud, the first recording from the latest Nobody's Favorite line-up, is released. It's one loud MFer to say the least. There are four songs - "Broke and Goin' Nowhere", "Ooh Baby, Oh Yeah", "A Season in Hell", and "Dirty Money, Black Lights". There isn't much explaining to do other than to say that we were pissed off when we made it. We just get tired of the bullshit that we each have to deal with day in and day out. We all work like hell and we pretty much lose our asses when we tour, but that's alright with us - we've dedicated a good portion of our lives to this - I guess we truly have sold our souls to rock 'n' roll. We've also got some tunes already recorded for future release. One of those songs even features our good friend and punk legend Sonny Vincent playing the loose-est, raunchiest solo in recent memory. But that will all come out soon enough. June, 2005: If you live out west, look for Nobody's Favorite in your hometown.
