The Blanks are (in alphabetical order) Sam Lloyd, Philip McNiven, George Miserlis and Paul F. Perry.
Here is their tale:
Sam, George and Paul met as students at Syracuse University. Then they moved to Los Angeles (not together and not at the same time so don't get any ideas) where they met Philip. Philip told them he was from Canada. He lied. He was born in Philadelphia. But they all liked to sing, so they did. Sadly, no one heard them so they couldn't prove it.
Some years later Sam got on a TV show. "Let's sing at the Christmas Party for the TV show I got on," said Sam. "Okay!" said the others. And they did. They sang their famous version of the John Williams Superman Movie Theme with original lyrics by Paul. (A song that is not included on their CD because the company that owns the rights to the song is very mean.)
The producers from the TV show that Sam got on said, "That was cool! We'll put your group on the show!" Sam, George and Paul said, "Great!" Philip said, "Eh."
After being on the TV show a few times, George said, "Let's make a CD." Paul and Sam said, "Okay!" And Philip said, "Eh" again, but he was still born in Philadelphia.
They worked their butts off for a long time (they look strange from behind) and produced the best CD they could. It included all the songs that they had performed on Scrubs up to that time, some personal favorites, a few originals and some "candid" recordings of the cast members and creator of the show.
"Let's sell it on CDBaby.com, eh!" someone said (I think we know who), and they did.
THE BLANKS' PLEDGE: Except for talking toys, hand claps, finger snaps and thigh slaps, there are never more than four Blanks voices at any time--yea, even on "Six Million Dollar Man."
