FOLLOWING the sudden implosion of Parchman Farm, singer Eric Shea knew that he had only two options; start a Firefall tribute band named High On Firefall or build a heavy punk ‘n’ roll quartet by sandwiching members from his favorite San Francisco bands. Following his gut, he pursued the sandwich.
Since he had a fondness for heavy acid-rock of the late 1960s and early 1970s, Shea called up Aaron Nudelman to ask if he still played guitar with the wild and shirtless abandon of his former band Mensclub. Nudelman said that although a recent court-order demanded he keep his shirt on in a public setting, he was still summoning a six-string jihad and that it would behoove Shea to lose his longhaired, backwoods, bow-hunting Republican pride and negotiate with guitarrorists.
Two negotiations and twelve beers later, Shea and Nudelman were knocking on the door of Rob Alper, as both drunk men were longtime fans of Alper’s drum work with Estrus Records darlings, The Fells as well as his contributions to The Sermon’s Volume. Alper apologized for answering the door naked before admitting that he liked the idea of dusting off his behemoth drum-kit and beating the living hell out of those drums like they were his own beloved children.
Two twelvers and nine high-fives later Shea, Nudelman and Alper knew they needed a bass player to flesh out their rock sandwich – and not just any bass player but a lead bass player without herpes. Enter Charlie Karr. A former member of The Hostiliteens and Alternative Tentacles recordings artists Harold Ray Live In Concert, Karr already had much in common with the others, especially their love for surfing, skateboarding, barbequing and playing heavy rock so loud that it melted the faces right off the skulls of evil Nazis, much like the end scene in Raiders Of The Lost Ark.
But the group also shared a lusty hunger for noontime meals served piping hot, which led them to one of the most clever, well thought-out and originally conceptualized monikers in the history of all music: HOT LUNCH. [from Facebook]

The Jack Saints
THE JACK SAINTS
“Getting into trouble hanging out with Nick -The scenester girls are pretty, but they make us sick.”.. .. The Jack Saints started in Palm Springs, Ca back in 1995. Shortly after we moved to San Francisco. Released a split 10″ with the Idiots, and put out a full length on Scooch Pooch/Sub Pop and toured. A few years ago Regal left and was replaced by ex New Bomb turk drummer, Bill Randt. We put out our 2nd full length, toured Europe again and played in SF with one of our favorites, Fitz of Depression! .. Mike moved back to SF in Feb 2008, and we’ve written 12 or so new songs (and still writing more!) and have some fun shows coming up with new drummer RD. Check it out! [from myspace]
