The band met years ago and bonded over groups like Patti Smith, The Stooges, PIL, Captain Beefheart,
The Cramps, Pixies, Fugazi and other Dischord highlights like Circus Lupus,
Black Flag, Sonic Youth and Vietnamese war-era rock'n'roll records. As teens in
the 90's they both had soft spots for punk rock, grunge, and noise - any sort
of hard music with its roots in the truth of street level human existence.
