In only two albums, Fudge shifted from dreamy bubblegum to pop-punk. The Richmond, VA, music group met through shared close friends in 1990 and performed for nearly a season before acquiring a bass participant or the right rehearsal space. Tony Ammendolia (vocals/electric guitar), David Jones (electric guitar/vocals), and Mike Savage (drums) composed music for the initial album within a downtown house until Steve Venable (bass) appeared. Using a name lent from an e.e. cummings poem, The Ferocious Rhythm of Precise Laziness appeared on the main minimal label Caroline in 1993, offering 10,000 copies and securing a tour using the Buzzcocks. Southside Speedway, using its shorter and harder-hitting music, came out twelve months later. Citing minimal distinctions among its associates, Fudge split shortly soon after. Savage and Venable afterwards performed in Cherry 2000 until Feb of 2000. Jones became a member of Active Truths and Ammendolia became a member of the rates of fatherhood.
