Ten Foot Pole are veterans of the Los Angeles area hardcore scene.
Formed in 1983 by guitarist Dennis Jagard as Scared Straight, they released
the EP Born To Be Wild (Mystic) and the full-length
You Drink You Drive You Die (Mystic)
before changing name to Ten Foot Pole and releasing the album
Swill (Fat Wreck, 1993), that inaugurated their major phase.
The band was rescued from obscurity after more than ten years by
Rev (Epitaph, 1994) that aligned them to the emerging school of
punk-pop played at furious speed.
But the fatalistic tone of Never Look Back, the
frantic and clownesque My Wall, the
epic and desperate ska-pop of Old Man, the
dynamic narrative of World's Best Dad and the
Gun Club-bing cowpunk of
Dying Duck In A Thunder Storm
paint the picture of literate philosophers immersed in social reportage.
Dispensing with singer Scott Radinsky, Unleashed (Epitaph, 1997) offered
their more consistently catchy and personal material ever
(Daddy, ADD, John).
Subliminable Messages (Go Kart, 2004) was a little less vital.
