The Fun Police hail from Tacoma, WA, a perennial hotbed of musicians that feed the Seattle scene with their finest --- Well, not this time. The Fun Police are Tacoma through and through, basing and staging their hi-jinks from the City of Destiny on the central Puget Sound. Formed in late 2008 from early local scene bands 'The Xenophiles' and 'Helter Skipper and the Gilligan Mansons', The Fun Police began blending genres like a Kitchen Aid on crack, pushing their punk rhythm unit to the edge with odd timing signatures and a zany sense to their lyrics and stage presence Originally a busking-only band (playing no gigs, only on the street), the calls soon came for organized shows. After clubbing Tacoma/Bremerton/Seattle extensively, The Fun Police invested their gig pay into the recording of a full length CD, 'You Better Run', with producer Conrad Uno at Egg Studios in Seattle. Their grassroots effort was well received regionally, and on various blogs throughout the internet. Continuing to tour, they expanded southward to Los Angeles, and eastward to Boise, before settling into Hourglass Studios in Bonney Lake, WA, with producer and sound engineer Dave Barfield at the helm. Spending a number of months in the studio has helped The Fun Police hone and define their trademark and original sound for the masses with the release of their second full length disc, 'Clown Control'.
