Giant's Chair was a band from fall of 1993 to the summer of 1997. Scott Hobart played guitar, wrote words and melodies, sang, and booked shows. Byron Collum wrote and played Bass Lines and fixed stuff. Paul Ackerman wrote and played drum parts and Drove a lot. Giant's Chair was instrumental in creating the type of midwestern post hardcore/emo sound that bands like Traindodge, Riddle of Steel, The Life and Times, and Shiner have and continue to play (shiner even had a song named after the band). The Giant's Chair discography includes 2 full lengths and 4 seven inches, most of the stuff was released on Caulfield Records. About 7 years after the band broke up a posthumous release of vinyl only material was released on Caulfield Records. The CD was untitled.

Devils Teeth came together as a lean but efficient three-piece in 2016, with Jon Hanusa on vocals and guitar, Eric Arsnow on vocals and bass, and Chuck Engel on drums. Dropping the apostrophe “just because”, the band quickly found themselves sharing the stage with notables like Dick Dale, The Blind Shake, Local H, The Toxenes and Left Lane Cruiser. After releasing some lo-fi rehearsal tracks, the band set to work on their debut in the summer of 2017 — aiming to be more than a traditional garage rock throwback. Channeling inspiration from Brucesploitation and Herschall Gordon Lewis films as well as surf and psychedelic sounds from decades past, the band holed up in Arsnow’s sweaty basement to self-produce the album. Months later, the band emerged with ten songs that blend the reverb-drenched energy of surf rock with the dissonance of post-punk and the theatrics of Spaghetti Western soundtracks.
