are noted for their intense, wild, and often homoerotic stage presence, 
abrasive-yet-catchy songs that warp and invert countless rock and punk 
tropes, radical (verging on wingnut) left-wing politics, and punishing 
tour schedules from the past (133 shows in 131 days at one point in 
2003). They have released numerous well-received albums and singles on 
labels such as Alternative Tentacles, Recess, Life Is Abuse, 
Thrillhouse, and Adeline, and are on countless compilations (such as 
MaximumRocknRoll’s “Noise Ordinance” LP).  “Introducing The Fleshies

commentary/humor, and brutalist melodicism of their earlier releases 
like “Kill The Dreamer’s Dream” (2001) and “The Sicilian” (2003). 
Recorded and engineered by Brian Plaskett, mastered by Daniel Husayn

John No, Brian Plaskett, and Hamiltron (all five of whom are original
