The Fun Police. Who Are These Silly Blue Bastards? THE CALL OF DUTY Officer Cox and Ranger Ruffhousen gradually rounded up the FP squad after composing a few ditties while driving and Composing songs in rural Washington. Only the trusted could join, no corrupt elements were allowed. The Fun Police have a lot of history together, musically and personally. The songs sung by them were composed on inner tubes on rivers, in vacant mines, on sidewalks, by tipsy drivers and semi-retired cowtippers. THE POLICE LINE UP Special Agent Sam and Ranger Ruffhousen dicked around in several bands together - Helter Skipper and the Gilligan Mansons, Cheeky White Devils, and The Xenophiles before they decided on a career in The Fun Police. Sergeant Snake, Brigadier B.Ski, Deputy D. before they were police played in a band called Grasshopper II and eventually graduated to Philo Gant. They rocked the Puget Sound area and beyond but decided to become full-time Police in November '08. Major Mullet and Officer Cox are rookie musical cops, which makes them eager to throw their weight around and prove that they are as tough as the rest, so tread lightly around these two and don't try to bribe them. The band is composed of metal workers, box makers, bartenders, cable operators, interpreters, Mormons, Catholics, atheists, agnostics, slackers, stoners, go-getters, vagabonds, male sluts, and virgins. Their politics range from the far left to the far right of the political spectrum, and to keep force alive they rarely speak politics. It is a tasty mix - stew-like, or like a homemade pico de gallo. To some it might be an acquired taste like coffee, whisky, or pig's blood THE MUSIC The Fun Police are equip with a versatile arsenal consisting of a viola, accordion, several vocalists, guitars, bass, drums, djembe and other secret weapons. The tempo is mostly upbeat and danceable. The tunes vary from folk, to reggae, to country to punk, to experimental. The Fun Police don't work really well with The Genre Police. The FP consider it a crime to take themselves too seriously, and are seldom seen arresting themselves.
