The Figgs formed in 1987 in Saratoga Springs, NY. Mike Gent (acoustic guitar, vocals), Pete Donnelly (bass), Pete Hayes (drums), and Man Lyons (business lead guitar) had been power pop and brash punk freaks, recklessly combining components of each but hardly ever losing view of a good connect. The combo released 7″ and cassette produces on the region indie Absolute-a-Go-Go prior to making their standard debut using the 1994 Imago LP Low-Fi at Culture Large. The Hi-Fi Dropouts EP adopted that same yr; both received solid notices from critics and university radio. Imago’s unexpected loss of funding and distribution remaining the Figgs and materials for his or her follow-up high and dried out, but the music group got on its ft at Capitol, which released Banda Macho in 1996. Nevertheless, despite some touring and advertising, Capital wasn’t actually sure how to proceed using the ambitious Banda or the people who managed to get, as well as the Figgs had been kicked towards the curb. Their following opportunity came because the support music group for Graham Parker, who tapped them for any tour after hearing their edition of “Enthusiasm Is No Regular Term.” The jaunt spawned a live arranged known as The Last Rock and roll N Move Tour (Razor and Connect, 1997), nonetheless it was mainly a great reason for the Figgs to try out with among their heroes. The Couldn’t Obtain High LP made an appearance from Absolute-a-Go-Go in 1998, accompanied by an EP for Hearbox a season later. 2000 noticed issue of both vinyl-only Rejects (Philthyrex) and Sucking in Stereo system (Hearbox), which emphasized the first new wave aspect from the Figgs’ participating, bratty pop. Stereo system was hailed by some being a go back to stripped-down, gladly rocking type for the group, which by this aspect got endured its unfair talk about of label woe and teasing achievement. The 2001 EP Badger constructed on Stereo’s achievement, as do the Hearbox full-length Gradual Charm a season later. Touring for your record included a stint with Tommy Stinson; the ex-Replacement came back the favour in 2004, guesting for the Figgs’ self-released twin record Palais. 2 yrs afterwards the Bloodshot label released 103 Levels in June, a mail-order and download-only live record using the Figgs support Graham Parker at Chicago’s Increase Door.
