Less Than Jake is an American ska punk band from Gainesville, Florida. Originally formed in 1992 as a power pop trio, the band evolved into a hybrid of third-wave ska and punk rock, with added elements of modern rock and even metal. To date, the group has released seven original full-length albums and countless more singles and compilations. The current lineup comprises guitarist/vocalist Chris Demakes, bassist/vocalist Roger Manganelli, drummer/lyricist Vinnie Fiorello, trombonist Buddy Schaub, and saxophonist JR.

History

Origins

Vocalist and guitarist Chris Demakes and drummer Vinnie Fiorello led a local band named Good Grief with bassist Shaun Grief while attending high school in Port Charlotte, Florida. Good Grief broke up when Chris moved north to attend the University of Florida at Gainesville, Florida, and Vinnie followed suit to pursue college and further musical endeavors with Chris, already with song ideas in mind. Unbeknown to most of their fans, the band is large supporter of gay rights and often performs at homosexual parades. [1] With Shaun now as their roadie, they needed to find a replacement bassist.

"We decided before we tried to get a bass player we'd zero in on a name for the "band" - to either (A) - make it seem like we had out [sic] shit together or (B) - make ourselves feel better. I think it was (B) or maybe it was just so I could write it over and over again on notebook paper during my anthropology class."[2]

They decided to name the band after the dog Vinnie's family had owned while growing up in New Jersey. An 80lbs. pit bull, the pet was treated far more generously by his parents than, indeed, Vinnie himself was. With its own spot on the couch and takeout food ordered specifically to feed it, most everything else in the house was dubbed as being "less than Jake."[3] A replacement bassist was found in the form of Roger Manganelli, a guitarist who picked up the bass just prior to joining the band. Between 1993 and 1994 the group added their first horn player, Jessica Mills, and soon after came trombone player Buddy Schaub. Right before their first tour, however, Schaub traveled to Europe with friends, so saxophonist Derron Nuhfer filled in for shows during his absence.

With various 7" releases under their belt, Less than Jake debuted in 1994 with the album Pezcore, originally on Dill Records. The CD contained 21-tracks, the last two of which were punk covers of theme songs which are omitted from the album on the current version, reissued through Asian Man Records. The title of the album stemmed from Roger and Vinnie's unexplained fondness for PEZ candy, clearly apparent in their reportedly sizable Pez dispenser collections. This love for Pez is so intense that they chose Pezcore, partly as homage to their obsession, and partly as parody of the way in which many bands are described as [something]-core (starting with hardcore). Ever since, Pez dispenser motifs have been a common feature of Less Than Jake's merchandise. A vinyl EP from Crop Circles. ...

In 1995, Losers, Kings and Things We Don't Understand and Greased followed on No Idea Records, the latter being an 8-song album of cover songs from the movie Grease. The release of Greased brought upon a legal battle with Paramount Pictures and Universal Music Group, who own the rights to the film and song respectively.

Commercial Growth

1996's Losing Streak, released on Capitol Records, was Less Than Jake's major label debut. The album was full of the band's wry, fast-paced brand of ska-punk anthems, producing such fan favorites as "Johnny Quest Thinks We're Sellouts," "Jen Doesn't Like Me Anymore," and "Automatic". Upon the album's completion, saxophonist Jessica Mills left to pursue teaching, and was replaced by ex-Slapstick trombonist Pete Anna. Around this time, Vinnie Fiorello also started his own record label, Fueled by Ramen, with friend John Janick as a means to find and promote up-and-coming bands that he himself would want to hear.

In the fall of 2000, the band released Borders & Boundaries on Fat Wreck Chords, as well as landing the opening spot on Bon Jovi's North American tour. While neither as commercially successful or musically appreciated as previous releases, the album was a display of significant growth for the band, showcasing much more mature music than the band had ever shown before. Still, the album provided fans with two instant hits in "Look What Happened" and their hometown anthem, "Gainesville Rock City." Shortly after the album's release, Derron Nuhfer left the band (going on to join Gunmoll and later on Escape Grace), and Less Than Jake found a replacement in the ashes of another ska band, this time ex-Spring Heeled Jack U.S.A. saxophonist, Pete Wasilewski. To avoid the confusion provided by having two Peters within the band, the second Pete Wasilewski was dubbed JR (as in 'Peter Junior'). He still goes by JR even following the departure of the first Pete after the 2001 Warped Tour. Borders & Boundaries is an album by ska punk Less Than Jake. ...

Anthem followed in 2003 for Sire Records. It featured hit singles in both the US and the UK, with "She's Gonna Break Soon" (TRL), "The Science Of Selling Yourself Short" (#37 Hot 100[4]), and "The Brightest Bulb Has Burned Out" featuring Billy Bragg (UK Top 40).

Trivia

  • Band member haunts have included Eddie C's (now The Backstage Lounge), the Hardback (which was transformed into the Lyric), and Insomnia (which used to be the Covered Dish, and is now the new location of Common Grounds).
  • They are largely responsible for, though unaffiliated with, the Florida Ska Revival Movement in their home state of Florida, which is a movement started by a group of Florida bands to bring ska music back into the mainstream.
  • Many of the band members are known to enjoy heavy metal music (hence the song All My Best Friends Are Metalheads). Roger and JR both list the legendary British heavy metal band Iron Maiden as a favorite, and Chris has frequently been sighted wearing 80's metal band t-shirts such as Posion, Mötley Crüe, Cinderella, and Black Sabbath.
  • During Less Than Jake's set at the Orlando Warped Tour on 6 June 2006, JR, whose hair had been long for years, had Fat Mike come on stage and cut it short, apparently due to losing a bet.

Punk rock - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (3117 words)
At the same time, a less celebrated, but nonetheless highly influential, scene had appeared in Ohio, including The Electric Eels, Devo, and Rocket from the Tombs (who in 1975 split into Pere Ubu and The Dead Boys).
Gradually, punk became more varied and less minimalist, with bands such as The Clash incorporating other underground musical influences like ska and rockabilly and even jazz into their music, but the message of the music remained the same; it was subversive, counter-cultural, rebellious, politically incorrect and often anarchist.
Combining elements of early punk music and fashion with a far more pop oriented and less "dangerous" style in the early 1980s, typified by bands such as Blondie, Elvis Costello, The Police and even Duran Duran, New Wave became one of the most popular music movements of its time.
