Toys That Kill, Dirty Ghosts, Bare Wires
In the late '80's, FYP started out playing fast, juvenile hardcore, gradually morphing into playing fast,sloppy pop. The bands benchmark release, 1993's Dance My Dunce, was a breath of fresh air. With spastic classics like "Vacation Bible School", 2000 AD, and "Fuck You and a Half", FYP brought a juvenile sense of kiddy power into their sound. Singing about important themes like school lunches and ding-dong ditching, FYP were the pinnacle of youthful pop aggresion. Toys That Kill evolved from the ashes of FYP (FYP named its swan song album "Toys That Kill" in 2000). spawning the new band the same way the band ALL grew off from the Descendents. FYP's "Toys That Kill" album was a perfect appetizer for the first proper Toys That Kill album, 2001's melodic lo-fi punk masterpiece, "The Citizen Abortion". 2003's "Control The Sun" is just as strapping, and now the band returns with what is possibly their strongest release to date, "Shanked!"

The Dirty Ghosts are pale and unwashed, yet they are fresh. Though based on solid ideas, the band is always attempting to get new with their style!!!!

"California's Bare Wires reside somewhere in the middle of that spectrum: The music is clean enough to be catchy, but ready to play dirty, too." NPR

"Melton may be more sincere and sentimental than his contemporaries, but that doesn't preclude a Bare Wires show from being a hangover-inducing clobbering of tight riffs and crunchy hooks."  THE ONION

"Fun, glam-tinged garage-pop with guitar solos that singe your nose hairs" SF WEEKLY

"Two fun backbeat poppers that stick in your head like a couple of bright pink wads of bubblegum."  ALTERED ZONES

"The band has found that sweet spot where the genres intersect, meaning there are plenty of hooks delivered by guitars that stop just short of doubling as buzzsaws."WASHINGTON POST

"Upbeat, classic garage rock with all the proper guitar hooks, just sweet enough to sing along."  THE BAY BRIDGED
