Biography

Denton TX, United States (2006 – present)

Teenage Cool Kids were a Indie rock/Punk Rock band from Denton, Texas.

The band started in summer 2006 by Andrew Savage, later joined by Daniel Zeigler whom Savage met while attending the University of North Texas in Denton. The bands earlier material, from the self-released demo and “Remember Me as a Silhouette” 7”, was lo-fi, poppy and often compared to early ’90s indie rock. The band’s first full length was Queer Salutations, released in 2007. Shortly after the release of Queer Salutations the band embarked on its first tour. The band is decidedly DIY, keeping all recording, songwriting, booking and visual art within the band. Teenage Cool Kids spent much of 2008 touring the United States and recording their next album. In 2009 the band was issued a cease and desist by Chicago hip-hop duo The Cool Kids over alleged trade mark infringement. The dispute ended with a settlement initiated by the Cool Kids. The dispute delayed the band’s second LP release by several months, but in June 2009 Foreign Lands was released by Protagonist Music.

    parquet courts is having their day in the sun now, and that makes sense... i have followed the same progression, listening to teenage cool kids alot in my late high school years and early college, before communing with my feelings so blatantly became a lot more painful as the stakes were raised. and parquet courts is the perfect flippant counter balance to that. but... sometimes it feels good to let all your emotions sit out in a big bloody pile on the ground

    Are these guys still together? I know Andrew is focusing on Parquet Courts who are rad as hell too, but not sure if these guys are done or not.

    the lyrics to Foreign Lands are absolutely horrible. affected and empty; the early lyrics are horribly affected too, but they stay close to home and stay away from the existential issues and they're better off that way. still seeking lyrics to Denton After Sunset.

    Total Babe sounds pretty cool if you play it on 45 rpm instead of 33.
