Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Fulflej were a rock band from Richmond, Virginia, United States, formed in 1986 by guitarist/vocalist Jason Greschke and bassist Andre Phillips. They were signed to Scratchie Records.

Biography

The band evolved from two previous projects. The first two incarnations were "The Un-Ones" with drummer Malcom Vaughn, hailing from Hampton, and then moving to Richmond to form "Rhithm Lyd" Other members briefly appearing in Rhithm Lyd were Phil Searcy and Katie Power. Rithim Lyd became Fulflej in Richmond Va with Drummer Matt Nelson. In 1996 Fulflej replaced Matt Nelson with drummer Ron Lowder.

Their musical style blends punk and heavy metal with tinges of dream pop and shoegaze. They are often compared to other alternative rock acts such as The Smashing Pumpkins and Catherine.

Though Fulflej had recorded more than enough material over the years, they have only put out two public releases: the "Microwave" EP (1995), and "Wack-Ass Tuba Riff" album (1996).

Smashing Pumpkins members James Iha and D'arcy Wretzky were featured on the album, with Iha playing the E-Bow guitar on their track "Microwave", and Wretzky singing backup vocals on "Shells". Their song, "Shift Into Turbo" was featured in Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie, which came out the following year.

Fulflej also recorded another album, "To Keep A Long Story Long" in 1998, though it was only released through MP3.com. The band called it quits in 2000.
