Provided the backgrounds of every individual member, the Plus Ones got simply no choice but to become pop-punk group upon their 1998 formation. Scotty Hays (electric guitar/vocals) spent his teenage years within the Struggle Buggies and Redemption 87 before dividing time taken between the Receivers as well as the Plus Types. Joel Audience (vocals/bass) spent amount of time in the Mr. T Knowledge; the Bomb Bassets, a 90’s incarnation from the Avengers; in addition to playing bass for Penelope Houston’s support band. Danny Anxiety was most observed for his amount of time in Chicago’s Screeching Weasel before shifting to SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA and completing for famous brands the Groovie Ghoulies and Pansy Department. The results induced a lively pop-punk clothing that’s synonymous using the warning “Cute Music group Alert.” Coldfront Information eventually added to the trio’s debut EP On the List in early 2000.
