Biography

Sterling VA, United States (1998 – 2003)

Pg.99 was a dark and emotive hardcore punk band from Sterling, Virginia, located in the outskirts of Washington D.C. “We were just a group of friends who all wanted to play music and try to make our lives more incredible”. They formed as a 6-piece in the Winter of 1998, and later became an 8-piece as their consistent touring line-up. But at their most extreme, they would have up to 13 members on stage, from extra vocalists to kazoo players. Their live shows were known for their extreme intensity, and they would frequently have “themed” shows, where everyone would dress up in togas, hit each other with pool noodles, crowd surf with boogie boards, etc. They went on several full US tours over their five-year existence. They released 11 records out on many different labels, including Reptilian, Level-Plane, Robodog, Happy Couples Never Last, Robotic Empire and Magic Bullet.

After several US tours, a European tour, and numerous releases, they disbanded in May 2003. Before officially breaking up, Pg.99 booked Steve Albini of Shellac and Big Black as their producer for a follow-up to Document #8. Guitarist Mike Taylor cited struggles with maintaining a large line-up due to schedule conflicts, and issues with drinking as major reasons for why Pg. 99 broke up. Taylor also said, “It was like a dysfunctional family where a group of people needed to give each other some space and clarity.”

    Shame the Heathers quotes were taken out of later versions of the Document #4 tracks.

    Their short forays into noise music-y stuff greatly appeases me... along with everything else they do ever.

    Ever feel like you're supposed to like a band? Pg.99 has been recommended to me by various people whose musical opinion I respect. Start with document 8 I'm assuming?

    "Anybody on here collect pg.99 stuff digitally? Message me or something. I've been causally scraping the internet for... more than half a decade for anything related to this band. Full vinyl art, booklet scans, footage, super rare pictures, stuff like that, stuff that I can't find on the net anymore. This band means more to me than I care to admit in mixed company and I don't want anything to be lost forever. [3]" if they really mean that much to you, why don't you get all of that and more by BUYING THEIR FUCKING RECORDS THEN?
