A little background on the band:
Given the pedigree, it's hardly surprising that Bustello's music is so catchy and sharply written. Frontman Ben Clarke led early-'90s outfit Metal Flake Mother, releasing music on the Moist/Baited Breath Label, and Bassist and Producer John Plymale played with local icons Sex Police and The Pressure Boys before becoming a popular local studio engineer with Superchunk, Squirrel Nut Zippers, and The Meat Puppets. Drummer Jody Maxwell's history includes stints with several NC bands, most notably Sex Police, Billy Warden's Floating Children, A Number Of Things, and Gumption
