The Truckee Brothers formed in San Diego in the Summer of 2003 to play a single show. That was the plan. Somewhere along the way 91X FM in San Diego began playing their song, "Death Vulcan Grip", and in Spring 2004 an EP was released and a band was born. Critically well received with the EP, their 2nd release "It Came From the Speakers" with it's 12 songs about Billy Clubs, Indians, Polyester, Sex, Pink Elephants, Caller ID and the like has been garnering some serious airplay in Southern California on KCRW, Indie 103.1, 91X, and 94/9 and in shows on MTV. The first single, "Billy Club", was placed into regular rotation on 91X FM without corporate approval when it was still a Clear Channel station and their track "Poly Esther" became the title song to their first film score. Frequent guest appearances on radio and television and a surprise sell-out show at Shane McGowan's Boogaloo in London have fueled the sparks of their growing reputation.
Maybe the growing reaction has something to do with their twisted twin lead vocals. Yes, TWIN LEAD VOCALS. Peat and Cady Truckee, are both lead singers with voices that couldn't be more different if they'd planned it. And, as far as they will admit, they NEVER had plans to be in this band. So opposite, they are like air and earth, and that makes a dust cloud. And they've got this sense of harmony that...well, goes far out in left field and over the wall. This ain't Simon and Garfunkel. With their brothers Hemi and Ott determined to bring back the great rhythm section pairings of Moon and Entwhistle, this band has become very hard to pin down.
