The Apes


Using a sound that resembles what would happen if Tony Iommi played organ instead of guitar in Black Sabbath, the Apes have already been performing throughout their native of Washington, D.C., since their development in 1999. Comprising Erick Jackson (bass/moog), Amanda Kleinman (body organ), Jeff Schmid (bass), andPaul Weil (vocals), Frenchkiss Information would eventually discharge their debut full-length, The Fugue within the Fog, in 2001. The Self-Starter Base released the vinyl edition. Two years afterwards, the band came back with Oddeyesee on French Kiss Information, and in 2004, they shifted to Birdman because of their third record Tapestry Mastery.
