Biography

THE FOAMERS first got together back in 1996, and were formed in a pub in Epsom, Surrey by Chris, Carlos and Kerem, soon to be joined by Tom. After a few months of writing and practising in true punk rock fashion they recorded a bunch of tracks in a local studio which had been converted from a public toilet.

Tent City Records, from New York, got hold of the demo and asked THE FOAMERS to do a record for them, so in June 1999 the band jetted off to the USA to record their debut full length, “6 Pints None the Wiser”. With the album (released in June 2000) described as a mix of 4/4 punk, ska and oi, with influences of Snuff and Choking Victim, THE FOAMERS found lots of new fans.

Amongst many other gigs, in the summer of 2001 THE FOAMERS embarked on a tour with Leftover Crack, and became friends with the band who are also a massive influence. After a few months THE FOAMERS headed back to the studio to record 3 tracks for release on their own label, Plopstars Recordings. The title track, Football was an anti-hooligan song, and 2 tracks from “6 Pints…” were also included, as recorded live whilst on tour with Capdown.

After a show one night at the Underworld, Camden supporting Hellcat punks F-Minus, THE FOAMERS became part of the Household Name family, and plans for the label to release their second album were hatched. Vigourous touring followed, including another tour with Leftover Crack in summer 2002, then with Big D And The Kids Table and Dan Potthast of MU330 in December 2002.

    why have you intentionally put an ad pop up into your homepage?

    Bad Things was from an old demo.. never released because it's blatantly a Catch 22 rip-off. One of my favourites, though! kerem
