The Last years
San Diego CA
The Band started in 2010 with Steve Baeza-Guitar,backing Vox
John Thompson-Lead Singer
Steven Fudge on Bass who has since been replaced by Miguel Rodriguez.
Steve and John had been out partying together going to shows and got to thinking about starting a band as the bands they were seeing were not what they were into. Steve started writing a bunch of songs played them for John as the lead singer he dug them.
Steven Fudge was always hanging around they told him to play bass he agreed, the only available drummer Steve knew was Vic, after giving Vic a call they started rehearsing in his garage they rehearsed 8 songs for about 4 months before their first show at The Radio Room for Yeah Buddy Fest Fourth of July weekend 2010. They have been playing non-stop since.
Their favorite San Diego Venues are the Tower Bar the only real dive bar left in San Diego, most bands want to play there so they feel lucky to be able to play there often. They also like playing at Bar Eleven an awesome venue for craft beers rock n roll and partying all night, to help them hone their stage presence and get used to being on stage the crew at Bar Eleven gave them a month long residency in December 2010 this really helped them out, they continue to play there monthly and dig it!
In March 2011 they played at the Double Down Saloon In Las Vegas NV with their Favorite local band Shiva Trash who started around the same time as they did they really enjoy playing shows together and are looking forward to a West Coast tour hopefully this summer.
They are currently working on a 7” single to be released soon under Cholo Punk Records.
The Last Years have just been added to the regular rotation at PoDunk Radio and are stoked about it! They also Submitted their “GET RAD” album for PoDunk Radio Punk Rock Vol.1 Comp.The Band is hoping PoDunk will choose Lick My Leather and Danny Never Says get used, these two songs are the best on the album and really define their sound as a band.
The Last years goal starting the band was to have as much fun and party for as long as they can and they have been doing that. They say they don’t have much ambition they mostly just like to party, get fucked up, and then have a few beers.
I would like to thank The Last Years for giving me the honor to be the first to review them.
