With the common history of social rejection between Melanie Levy (vocals) and Kevin Sur (guitar), the two wanted to have the chance to musically express these frustrations upon the 1996 formation of their band Luckie Strike. Accompanied by bassist Dre Gallardo and drummer Liz Beidelman, the band set up camp in their native Sacramento, California and developed a small following from all those who could relate to their tales of being picked on in high school. With an addition to their fast paced aggression and tender, melodic vocals, Pork n Beans Records released the bands full-length debut Geekcore in 1997. A heavy tour across the United States followed in support of the album 1998. An EP Future Is Turning was released on Tomato Head Records in mid-2000. Future Is Turning followed in spring 2001. ~ Mike DaRoncoPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
