vocalist-guitarist Fred Thomas began his career in a band
called Lovesick. He established himself as a major
with the Flashpapr,
whose textural, moody folk-rock was enhanced by upright bass
(Zach Wallace) and violin (Jacob Danzinger) on Pain Taped Over (1998) and Do What You Must Do (Westside Audio Laboratories, 1999).
Thomas' next project was Saturday Looks Good to Me, the moniker under which
he recreated two albums that mimicked the sound of the Sixties:
Saturday Looks Good to Me (2000) and
Cruel August Moon (2000).
Having become a real band, they released
All Your Summer Songs (Polyvinyl, 2003),
Every Night (2003),
and Fill Up the Room (K, 2007).
Sound on Sound (2006) collects singles and EPs.
Fred Thomas' then released the solo albums:
the acoustic Everything Is Pretty Much Totally Fucked Up (Little Hands, 2002),
with the anthemic When You Fuck Things Up With Your Baby,
Turn It Down (2004), with the frenzied Your Car, and
Sink Like a Symphony (2006).
Having relocated to New York, Fred Thomas formed City Center, that
debuted with the
EP Saturday Looks Good to Me's Cold Colors and the album
City Center (Type, 2009) in a style similar to
Panda Bear's psychedelic folk-pop
(Killer Whale, Bleed Blood).
