Biography

Drawing from 80s post-punk sounds of the Buzzcocks, Placebo, and Manic Street Preachers, Post Adolescence and their album “My Nothing” demonstrate a British-Post-Punk-Glam sound that belongs only to them. These pure pop sounds find the “young and angry” pleasure center for which all of us lust. In the truest sense, they are at the leading edge of the next wave of the post-modern rock movement.

Post Adolescence is not a catastrophe of stupidity or of freaks of nature, rather it is a testament to dudes who get along, have fun, and want to rock. Coming of age in his previous band, Johnny Straube found British- and modern rock-influenced drummer Brian McCrossen and, with pop-influenced bass player Gar Hooker, became Post Adolescence. The band took to the stage for the next couple years, grinding away, asking its loyalists to wait until it was time to make a record worthy of their namesake. After time served and becoming, in the words of Straube, “proof a band doesn’t have to hate each other to make good music,” they headed into the studio to keep promises and make a record.

During 2009-2010, realizing Post Adolescence had a chance to “do something different,” Straube, McCrossen, and Hooker recorded the album “My Nothing,” a multi-dimensional proof of a band not imbued with a “just do it,” make-a-record bull.
