Pics from the Styrofoam Ones release party at Rolly’s Garage last Saturday night.  It was a mad party, with hundreds crammed into an actual mechanics garage on Ossington Ave.

If you’re interested in picking up the 7″ vinyl, featuring two golden tunes: O.T.T.A.P. & Pavement (with a sleeve designed by the amazing Mr. Nick Fox) give the boys a shout via MySpace: http://www.myspace.com/styrofoamones

Styrofoam Ones are:

Josh McGuirk, Clay Jones, and JR Punzalan.

Here’s a NOW Magazine write up about them:

“They fit best within the legions of dance rock bands that have popped up over the past decade, but they’re no cookie-cutter electro band. They’re more like your classic power pop trio, but replace the guitar with some dirty synths and slap some distortion all over the bass guitar to fill in the miss­ing dirt. The occasional drum machine in the background is something of a red herring – residue of the times we’re living in rather than an indication of the band’s disco fantasies.

On first listen, their punk energy is what you notice, but once they get to their first chorus, the pure pop potential shines through loud and clear. If there’s any justice in the world, someone will capture this raw, unrefined magic before they clean it up too much. They’ve likely got a great new-wave pop record in them, but we’d like to enjoy this loose and dirty phase of their evolution a bit longer first.”
