All Music Guide:
The beginnings of Hollywood-based rockers The Flys lay in informal jam sessions between eventual members James Book (bass), Peter Perdischizzi (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 alterna-rock with retro sounds, The Flys take a far more original approach than the majority of other late-90's alternative bands. Prior to their debut to the August '98 release of their debut, 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 followed in the spring of 2000.
