Biography

The Lillingtons (1996-2001, 2006-2008) were a punk rock band from Newcastle, Wyoming. Considered a pop punk act by contemporaries, their sound often draws comparisons from punk pioneers the Ramones.

The original lineup consisting of Kody Templeman, Zack Rawhauser, Cory Laurence, and Tim (Timmy V) O’Hara as a four-piece only recorded the first 7”,”I Lost My Marbles”, produced by Joe King of The Queers for his More Bounce to the Ounce compilation CD. The band continued as a three-piece after Zack quit.

Their first full-length album, titled Shit Out of Luck, was released on Clearview Records in 1996. Following the release of their first album the band changed their lyrical focus. In 1999 they went into the studio with producer-engineer Mass Giorgini to record a new LP. This was done with the band’s own money, and without the benefit of a record label. The result was Death By Television, an album that took sci-fi movie-themed songs such as “War Of The Worlds” and “Invasion Of The Saucermen” and combined them with tracks that made references to other retro themes, such as “X-Ray Specs.” The recordings instantly created a buzz. Successful label Fat Wreck Chords offered to release the album, but the band had already accepted an offer. They signed with Panic Button Records, an imprint of influential punk label Lookout! Records that was overseen by Ben Weasel of Screeching Weasel fame.
