Biography

The brothers Finn Moore Gerety (vocals, guitar) and Carrick Moore Gerety (vocals, guitar), grew up listening to the same records: Our mom had to buy duplicate copies to keep us from fighting. Finn first met Matthew Fishbeck (bass, vocals) at a party when the two of them got into a scuffle over a postcard. In another room at the same party, David Benjamin (drums, percussion) skunked Carrick, the neighborhood ping-pong champion. You hit hard, Carrick told him. Do you play drums? The four of them left the party as a band.In 1995, the lo-fi label Chunk Records released Push Kings first 7”. A 4-song lo-fi release called Slow Down, This Is Not Monte Carlo in 1000 copies. Nothing happened so they recorded an LP which they planned to release on their own. But in the meantime people all around the world started to contact them and wanted to release their stuff.

One of them was Eric Masunaga who bought a tape from them after a concert. He released their Macy Macy 7” on his recordlabel Sealed Fate Records. The swedish label Slowball Recordings released a 7” called The Park and Double Agent Records (run by Peter Green from Class) released the Florida 7”. They also appeard on several cassette and album compilations (for more info on this, check out the discography). All this during 1996!

Then it was time for their first album to be released.
