The Flys

The beginnings of Hollywood-based rockers the Flys lay in informal jam sessions between eventual members James Book (bass), Peter Perdichizzi (guitar), Adam Paskowitz (vocals), and Nicky Lucero (drums). Eventually another singer/rapper, Joshua Paskowitz, joined, and the band found themselves signed to Trauma Records. By merging alt-rock and post-grunge with retro sounds, the Flys took a far more original approach than the majority of other late-'90s alternative bands. Prior to the August 1998 release of their debut album, Holiday Man, the band had already appeared on the soundtrack for the movie Disturbing Behavior and played at the Bethel/Woodstock site for the A Day at the Garden show. The Flys' sophomore album, Outta My Way, which featured the hit single "Losin' It," followed in the spring of 2000, but by 2002 the band had gone on indefinite hiatus. ~ Greg Prato
