Discography

We have only been able to afford to record ourselves at Seattle University, but our demos have been played on KEXP's Sonic Reducer and a streaming podcast called The Love Hate Society. We have over 45 minutes of original material recorded and available for listening on our myspace and Bandcamp websites.

Bio

We are primarily influenced by bands from the British invasion such as The Beatles, The Kinks, The Zombies and The Animals. We love Soul music like Sam Cooke and Diana Ross and the Supremes. We are also devoted followers of the contemporary garage rock scene, including bands like King Khan and BBQ, Ty Segall, The Detroit Cobras, The Dirtbombs and The White Stripes to name a few.

What sets us apart from other bands is that we are able to encompass a wide range of song styles including Do-wop, Blues, Soul, and Punk seamlessly into a set list. We get people dancing because we like to dance, and we all believe that rock and roll is about everyone having a good time. Our music is full of improvisation and each player's part is a unique aspect of the whole. We also have a number of talented vocalists who all sing, a la The Beatles.

We are one of the most ambitious bands in the northwest. Even though we have only been together around nine months, we have quickly become regulars at venues such as The Funhouse and The Comet, headlining and opening for some of the best rock bands in the country including: Davilla 666, No Bunny, and Bare Wires to name a few. We all live and breath Capitol Hill, literally, as we all practice, live, drink and dance in Seattle's best neighborhood!
