Biography

There are two bands currently known as The Bachs.


1) The most well known band called ‘The Bachs’ were a 5 piece garage rock band based out of Chicago. Self described as a “long hair, dancing, strutting, and entertaining” rock and roll band, they were a popular attraction at many local shows including High school dances.
Their sole LP “Out Of The Bachs” originally saw only 500 private pressings, but nevertheless became legendary amongst 60s garage fans. The album has been reissued several times, usually ‘bootleg’, most recently in 2004 on Gear Fab Records, which suffers from markedly poor fidelity.

2) The Bachs are a young indie-pop-rock duo comprised of siblings Sebastian Abraham Bach (who shall be referred to henceforth as “S.A.”; 22 years old) and Allison Jill Bach (more commonly, “Allie”; 16 years old). Their sadistic parents named firstborn son “Sebastian” in what could only logically be construed as an act of thoughtlessness, if not outright scorn. In 1989, at the tender age of five, S.A.’s future was devastated further by the widespread popularity of a hair metal band called Skid Row and its frontman “Sebastian Bach” (real name: Sebastian Bierk). The next year, S.A.’s recently rehabilitated parents unceremoniously named his new sister “Allison.” (Lucky bitch.)

In the early 00s, finally out of therapy and marginally functional (but still somewhat dazed), S.A. set off in pursuit of the obvious next step: forming a rock band. Lacking friends or social graces of any kind, he enlisted his much more normal and well-adjusted sister Allie to play bass and sing backups. Having no better ideas, they dubbed themselves The Bachs. Inexplicably, they sounded pretty damn good.
