Everyone else gets to have weekly update things, so I'm jumping on the bandwagon as well.
My biggest hobby is scouring the internets for new bands to quench my elitist-hipster thirst, so I figure every week I'll slip you guys a new band that I've been really into. ;D
So for week one of me jumping on the metaphorical bandwagon - I present:
THE FAD began as four high school friends writing four chord punk songs in 2001. The mission: to play ska music but not be labeled a "ska band". Today, THE FAD is five friends playing five chord punk songs with just a dash of reggae & hardcore. The name originates from the state of underground music in 2001. Bands like The Impossibles, One Cool Guy, Edna's Goldfish & Animal Chin were all breaking up, or at least dropped the danceable reggae parts.
They've released a debut EP titled 'Number 5' and a 3 song, untitled demo so far.
