Ancient History: Starring... Fez Perez

Fez Perez rocked the east coast of Australia (and one quick trip to Perth) in the early 2000's leaving a trail of sweat & blood (usually our own).

Back then I was known as "James Jr" & was their longest standing permanent drummer joining in 1999 and leaving in 2002 (I think).

"Starring... Fez Perez" was our 2nd EP recorded with Matt Gearing-Thomas at Gotham in 2001 and released through Smokin' Taco Records and MGM Distribution. It features "Beef" which was one of the first songs I wrote and the blisteringly awesome "Gamma Wray" surf instrumental.

Starring... Mick Beard (Sons Of Lee Marvin) - Bass & Lead Vox, Screamin' Stu Banko (Sons Of Lee Marvin) - Rhythm Guit & Lead Vox on "Roulette", Matt Black (Fireballs) - Guitar & BVs and me on Drums.

Fez had some hype and a pretty good following (better interstate than Melbourne) we played some international supports - El Vez, Royal Crown Review, Supersuckers, The Reverend Horton Heat and maybe even Southern Culture On The Skids (my memory is foggy) - and some major festivals - Falls, Offshore, Big Day Out.

Mick & Stu's current band "Sons Of Lee Marvin" is however musically better than anything Fez ever did.
