Formed in 1989, named after their favorite cat (!), Schlong came to life in a west Oakland, CA warehouse, named the Zen Den. Schlong played their first show at a friend’s apartment for his birthday party in Albany, CA.
Style-wise, Schlong played the most complex, interstellar, jazz/prog/space jams with time signatures that’d make Rick Wakeman cry. But lyrically, most songs were about hippos, boogers, jock itch, or fleas. Their albums include: Limp (1991, 7”), Waxy Yellow Buildup (1992, LP), Squattin’ On The Pot (1993, LP), The Essential Schlong (1993, compilation), Pooploops (1994, 7”), Tumours (1995, 7”),Unessential Schlong (1995, compilation), Punk Side Story (1995, LP), and their final album Fish Booty (1996, LP). They also release several split records (i.e., releases with another band). The majority of their releases were put out by Very Small Records and Bun Length Records, though Punk Side Story was put out by Hopeless Records.
In 2004, after nearly a decade, Schlong got back together and played a reunion tour throughout California.
