Just because people flinch when they hear your name doesn't mean you probably suck. And it usually spawns a series of probing questions like "Do you hate the French?" or "Bomb Paris!? That's terrible!" well truth be told we despise violence and we love the French, we just know once you hear the name you won't forget it - like our music. So says the people who hear us anonymously on certain websites where we have placed in the top twenty out of thousands of other bands. Not too bad considering these people have no idea who you are until after they rate the song. So we the three piece that hail from the majestic suburbs of New Jersey have taken pride in the catchy, upbeat, melodic songs we have written this past decade. And being described as "What the Radio would play if it didn't have it head up it's ass" or "Empire Record meets Green Day?" isn't to bad to hear either but we like to say we just write real kick ass Rock n' Roll, some call it Punk, but the punk you hear on the radio sure doesn't sound like us especially when we are compared to the likes of early Replacements, or The Kinks ,but meaner and faster of course. Welcome is a collection of recordings from 1998 through 2002 that were recorded at a generous studio in upstate New York. We decided to release them rather than let them sit in a closet in case anyone out there might be interested in hearing something new. We have always believed these songs had great potential, and when they were played, they were always well received. We hope you enjoy them too.
