Slacks was created as a side-project for me and Randy's noisecore/metal band, SUPERHIGHWAY CARFIRE, in the mid 90s.
Slacks! , our first CD, was released by Translation Loss/Infernal Racket Records in 2003 to, what actually seemed like, critical acclaim. It was recorded by Randy and I at Super 8 Studios.
Our original drummer, Dan Ballinger, left the band and was replaced by Mike Prout, of the band QUIPS. Our old friend/collaborator, Christian, signed on as our full-time singer.
In the fall of 2005 we released our second CD, Terrestrial on Translation Loss Records. It was also self recorded at Super 8 Studios.
As of December '06 our bassist, Ed Ballinger, left the band to concentrate on his video work. See what he's up to at www.punkmonkeypictures.com. Grant Hughes, also from QUIPS, has since replaced him.
We're currently finishing up our third CD, it should be released sometime in 2008. Please buy it.
