Todd Congelliere's F.Y.P. are punks from San Pedro, the port of Los Angeles, who play a raw, sloppy, goofy, hyper-kinetic version of Screeching Weasel's punk-pop. Their discography started with the six-song EP Made in USA (1991) and proceeded prolifically with the album Finish Your Popcorn (, 1992) and the 11-song EP Extra Credit (Recess, 1994). The album Dance My Dunce (Recess, 1995) packs 17 gems of naive dementia and remains their masterpiece. Toilet Kids Bread (Recess, 1996) and My Man Grumpy (Recess, 1997) took a turn towards a more mature style.

Multi-instrumentalist Sean Cole runs the show on Toys That Kill (Recess, 2000), that features a few of their masterpieces: Come Home Smelly, Wherever The Creeps Go, Don't Have Another One, 1000 Dead Cheerleaders, Love's Been No Good To Me.

The band's career ended with the eight-song mini-album Come Home Smelly (Theologian, 2000), possibly their best offering ever, featuring the epic romps of Pink Slipped and Knee High, the delirious West Psalm Beach and Shirts and Skins, and their philosophical testament, God Don't Give 2 Shits About Me, besides the title-track.

Incomplete Crap Vol. 1 (Recess, 1996) is a collection of rarities, including the six-song EP Cooties, Made in USA and Finish Your Popcorn. Incomplete Crap Vol. 2 (Recess, 1999) is a 43-track anthology of tracks from singles and compilations, and perhaps the best introduction to their crazy and frantic world.
