Formed in the late '90s by guitar player Damien Paris and drummer Andrew Totolos, unapologetically loud rock quartet the Giraffes combine the power of the Melvins and Corrosion of Conformity with the hedonistic attitude of Black Flag and the Circle Jerks. Bass player John Rosenthal and vocalist Aaron Lazar joined in 2002, recording two self-produced albums (Helping You Help Yourself and A Gentleman Never Tells) in the band's home studio, which was conveniently located under a Hasidic dry cleaner. They signed to Razor & Tie in 2004 and released their self-titled label debut the following year.
