A trio of Brett White colored (vocals/guitar), Marcus Gonzales (bass) and Possum (drums), Gren formed in LA, California, USA, within the springtime of 1994. Two of the tunes featured on the first four-track demonstration cassette were after that included on I.R.S. Information’ Six Sided Solitary compilation, a string that shows unsigned skill. IRS duly provided the group a agreement, resulting in the discharge of French Fries Optional in 1995. Made by Tim O’Heir (Sebadoh, Stomach, Dinosaur Jr) at Fort Apache Studios, it had been promoted by way of a support slot machine within the Ramones’ US tour of this yr. The record’s younger bluster and catchy pop punk sound prompted instant evaluations with Green Day time and Rancid.
