Shaped in 1997 by Los Angeles-area musicians Erik Newton (vocals and guitars) and Mike Elliot (bass and vocals), Tom Racer is normally a high-energy alt-pop group, not a single artist infatuated with ’60s cartoon motor unit sports activities. Along with drummer Jon Elliot, Tom Racer instantly stormed the L.A. membership circuit and quickly seduced the attentions of Slog/Risk Information. The label agreed upon the music group and released their initial full-length documenting, The Secret’s Out, in 1998. This debut features some fine Foo Fighters-influenced pop/rock and roll and punchy shows. While not precisely a graph burner, The Secret’s Out was generally well-received in the indie/underground music press. Very much touring adopted as Tom Racer constructed a small pursuing checking for works like Jimmy Eat Globe, Marcy Playground, and Ash (whom the music group frequently known as a major impact). Alt-pop enthusiasts who can see right now a simplified, jangly Blinker the Celebrity will receive a good notion what this music group sounds like. Following the touring to get their debut was completed, the drumming Elliot was changed with Jared Summerell and guitarist Aaron Emil became a member of to make the group a four-piece. Tv applications like MTV’s REAL LIFE and Road Guidelines, WB’s Well-known, and ESPN’s The X-Games possess each presented the band’s music. The brand new lineup eventually returned into the studio room and emerged using their second full-length disk, TR. Unfortunately, the discharge of the record kept obtaining pushed back again throughout 2001 as well as the documenting long term of the group appeared to be a little uncertain.
