Biography

There are two artists using the name “Gob”.

1) Gob is a punk band from Burnaby, British Columbia formed in 1994. Their single I Hear You Calling was featured on Electronic Arts’s NHL 2002 video game. Other songs that have been featured in EA video games are Give Up the Grudge (Madden 2004), Oh! Ellin (NHL 2004), I’ve Been Up These Steps (NHL 2003), and Sick With You (NHL 2003). The band has appeared on several outdoor music festivals, the most well-known being Vans Warped Tour.

The roots of Gob trace back to Theo Goutzinakis (guitars, vocals) and Tom Thacker (guitars, vocals) meeting in high-school in Langley, British Columbia, Canada. There are rumors that the two had dated the same girl, though not simultaneously. With the addition of drummer Patrick Paszana, known to fans as “Wolfman Pat”, and bassist Kelly Macauley, the band released its self-titled, nine-track EP in 1994.

Due to personal differences, Kelly was replaced by Jamie Fawkes and in 1995 Gob released Too Late… No Friends. The album was a major breakthrough and saw the band earn a large following due to their unique videos, constant touring and their frenetic live performances. Shortly after releasing their first album, Gob released another limited-edition Green Beans and Almonds 7-inch containing four songs.

After allegedly abandoning the band mid-tour, leaving Gob to play the remaining dates as a three-piece, Jamie was asked to leave and was temporarily replaced by Happy Kreter, a friend of the band, until a permanent replacement was found in Craig Wood.
