Who could believe that it�??s been 13 years since the band�??s humble beginnings, selling Chixdiggit! T–shirts in their high school halls to fund the instruments they�??d eventually learn to play– How quickly those early gigs in Calgary turned into tours with Lagwagon, The Presidents Of The U.S.A., Groovie Ghoulies, and Social Distortion. At those early shows, crowds could barely glimpse the tops of the boys heads due to their penchant for deep punk–rock splits, but anyone who did catch their act realized these rockers know how to have a good time.

Lead singer/guitarist K.J. Jansen is straight outta Canmore, a hard–scrabble mountain town too small to contain his sort of energy. After he ran away twice for stints as a roadie, K.J.�??s M and P figured they�??d better move his delinquent teenage ass to the big city. He went on to meet Mark (sometimes referred to as �??The Sparrow�??); Mike, the new guy on bass; and finally Jason on the tubs, the drummer from their first record on Sub Pop, who has thus returned to restore some dignity to this band. The fit– Kismet.
