Biography

Pilfers formed in 1997, when former Toasters vocalist, Coolie Ranx joined with former Bim Skala Bim trombonist, Vinny Nobile. To complete the lineup, they recruited the Skinnerbox rhythym section of Anna Milat-Meyer, on bass and James Blanck, on drums, as well as guitar player, Nick Bacon, of The Erratics.

The band released one demo tape and played many New York area shows, before self releasing their debut, self-titled album, in 1998. Response was positive enough, that the band was signed to Mojo Records, and they released Chawalaleng, one year later.

Soon after their major label debut, Anna Milat-Meyer and James Blanck, left the group. Anna Milat-Meyer took a position, playing bass, in Latin Jazz band, Los Mas Valientes. Carl Barc, of the band Ever Since Day One, took over on bass and Dave Karcich of Spring Heeled Jack USA took over on drums. The band continued to tour, and build a strong fanbase. The band recorded a live show at CBGB’s, intending for it to be released on CD. The album would never see release though, since the band split up in 2001.

Soon after the breakup, started a solo career, recording and playing shows around the world with back up band Fear Nuttin’ Band. Nick Bacon joined Lost City Angels, who were looking for a second guitarist. Nobile, Barc and Karcich, joined with Spring Heeled Jack USA guitarist, Mike Pellegrino to perform as Cenzo, for a World Trade Center benefit show in 2001. Karcich also took the drum position in Avoid One Thing, a band fronted by former Mighty Mighty Bosstones bass player, Joe Gittleman.
