2. Are 4 strapping young gents who
3. Offer exceptional womb service;
4. Will not B.S. you;
5. Are coming.


The Sweet Nuthin was the outcome of a gig between two of Austin's most promising up-and-coming bands, The Steps and The Daze. Each digging by the other, they would play together many times over the next few years, leading the charge of bands trying to keep the youth dancing. Both earned opportunities that most other young bands could only dream of: after being picked up by Kevin Wommack's Loophole Management, The Steps toured the States,
England, and Japan, played the Austin City Limits music festival twice, and released a self-titled album produced by Frenchie Smith. The Daze were selected for the ?lm Bandslam, featured on its soundtrack alongside David Bowie, The Velvet Underground, and Wilco, and recorded their own debut LP Straightjacket Hymns under the guidance of two-time Austin Music Awards Producer of the Year Rick del Castillo.

When Evan Charles, guitarist and vocalist for The Daze, decided to start a new band the ?rst members were obvious choices. Chris Ritchie, a transplant from The Daze and a childhood friend would play bass. Z Lynch, drummer of The Steps, signed on immediately. Colin Peters was recruited after coming to Austin from NYC because real rock'n'roll bands have two guitars.

Primarily drawing inspiration from The Rolling Stones, Neil Young, The Velvet Underground, Ryan Adams, and The Strokes, the band's motto from the beginning has been “Less is more.” Restraint in service of the song. The Sweet Nuthing have been gigging hard and building a following in Austin. They're now looking to the rest of Texas and will be getting on the road this summer.
