Orange Region, CA-based Christian punk-pop clothing Slick Shoes shaped in 1994 from your ashes of the neighborhood band Today’s Particular, reuniting guitarist Jackson Mould with drummer Joe Nixon. On the following 12 months, the duo worked well at writing tunes before recruiting bassist Jeremiah Dark brown; Mould in the beginning assumed vocal responsibilities, but with the help of after that 14-year-old frontman Ryan Kepke, the Slick Sneakers lineup was total, and within a fortnight, the band authorized to the Teeth & Toenail label to concern their self-titled 1997 debut EP. The full-length Rusty adopted later on that same 12 months, and upon adding second guitarist Dale Yob, the group documented 1998’s BURN UP. Both Mould and Yob quickly exited, along with fresh guitarist Greg Togawa, Slick Sneakers returned like a four-piece in middle-2000 with AWAKEN Screaming, quickly accompanied by a break up EP with Cooter (the music group that would later on become renamed Autopilot Off) documented for the Fueled by Ramen imprint. Following a tour with MxPx and extra shows with Teeth & Nail performers Ace Troubleshooter, Calibretto 13, and Pole Laver, Slick Sneakers issued their 4th recording, a self-titled work in Apr 2002. Following a album’s recording, many more lineup adjustments ensued. Dark brown exited to become changed by bassist Kevin Clark; both guitarists ultimately left aswell and Jonah Peterson and David Stoltenberg would eventually fill up those positions. Definately not Nowhere appeared another summer on Part One Dummy, which preceded that fall’s THE LARGEST and Greatest greatest-hits compilation. Ever unpredictable, in early 2004, Nixon and Clark got the shoe from Slick Sneakers.
