Musically born out of the 70s, raised in the 80s, and experimenting through out the 90s, Fluid Boys cut a wide swath across the world of rock. Never ones to shy away from a good rock beat, Fluid Boys can also include Jazz and Pop, and other different styles in their music. Not ashamed of being called derivative, the Fluid Boys seem to revel in the term, and freely admit their influences. Mostly influenced by Boston Based New England Rock bands and English Pop and Blues bands, the phrase 'New English Pop' seems to fit. 'Vinyl' itself is a smörgåsbord of these styles, tailored to fit the personalities and talents of the band members, and presented as a slightly quirky, but not inaccessible album. Some influences will be readily identified, some are more subtle. With all the band members sharing writing, singing, and production chores, there is still continuity in the variety on the album. Not all the songs sound the same, that's not the idea behind Fluid Boys or "Vinyl". In fact, they enjoy saying that if you don't like a song, stick around for three and a half minutes, they'll be another one along that you will like.
