The Stereo system plays catchy rock and roll using the levity of Weezer, blending pop-punk using the big, honest super rock and roll of groupings like Trip and only a hint from the heartfelt, piano romping of Billy Joel. The group started in 1999 when two music artists — Jamie Woolford of Pet Chin and Rory Phillips from the Impossibles — mixed their solo tasks at the suggestion of the label. After tape trading and calls, Woolford jumped in his vehicle and drove to Austin, TX, where in fact the duo documented their entire full-length debut, 3 HUNDRED. The materials was then delivered to maker J. Robbins, who offered it his popular touch, and premiered on Fueled by Ramen in 1999. After touring in support their 1st record, Phillips remaining the group. But Woolford pressed on, enlisting assistance from friends and liberating the brand new Tokyo Is Contacting EP on the way. Guitarist Erik Hanson became a member of, soon still left the group, and was changed by Ross Felrath, and then re-join the music group once again. The Stereo’s second record, No Traffic, and in addition, dealt with problems of betrayal, reduction, and abandonment, but guaranteed the music group an offer for the large-scale tour of Japan. At this time, Jamie Woolford was the only real remaining person in the Stereo however in need of the touring band, therefore Woolford asked close friends from Pet Chin and Pollen to become listed on him, and along the way guaranteed the Stereo’s lineup. Using a collection of music artists including Ben Woolford, Dan Hargest, Thomas Laufenberg, Kevin Scanlon, Christopher Serafini, Bruce Joshua Wuollet, and Katie Riemann, Jamie Woolford proceeded to go into the studio room to record the band’s third record. Rewind + Record, released on Fueled by Ramen in June of 2002, understood Woolford’s objective of crafting a huge album with music that inspire listeners to obtain lighters from the slow music and revel in the rock and roll show.
