Powerpop and Rock & Roll with a D.I.Y. punk spirit. A humorous look at trying to come to terms with middle-age, lost youth, nostalgia, the creative process and an homage or two to fallen heroes and idols.

BIOGRAPHY

Four small town boys with a mutual love of cheese pizza, B-movies and loud music meet, kid each other mercilessly, laugh hysterically and decide to form a band. Many records by the Beatles, the Ramones and the Clash are worn thin. Eventually guitars, amps and drums are purchased. Thrashing of purchased instruments doth commence. Years go by. Beer is consumed. Sundry events occur. More beer is consumed. Middle age ambushes the boys with a gorilla attack. Band efforts are redoubled. Names are changed to protect the embarrassed and guilty. The Frinkers accept the RPM Challenge. The rest is, as they say on television, music history.
