Laguardia began in Philadelphia in 2000. While bassist Michael Morpurgo (ex-Dandelion) and vocalist Joshua Ostrander had been playing in Ty Cobb, they started collaborating with guitarist Lee Bernstein privately. The lineup solidified with the help of Trip 66 drummer Greg Lyons, and quickly Laguardia was a full-time procedure. Gigs both in Philly and NEW YORK followed, as well as the music group supported nationwide types just like the Brian Jonestown Massacre while honing its Radiohead-friendly mixture of contemporary rock convenience and angular indie dynamics. After dalliances with several major brands, Laguardia resolved on Republic/Common and began documenting its debut with professional helmer Brad Solid wood. Thanks for visiting the Middle made an appearance in Sept 2003, and was backed by tours using the French Kicks as well as the Open fire Theft.

After returning to America, he had the opportunity to practice these languages as an interpreter for the city's child welfare bureau at Ellis Island (1907-10). When he ran for mayor years later, he was famous for speaking these languages at campaign rallies in the appropriate neighborhoods.|
