The Galactic Heroes formed in the late '90s in South Carolina, when Mike and Ricky formed the group out of the ashes of the group Flop UK. The band's upbeat tempo of indie pop quickly turned heads in twee pop circles. The band's name came from the video game Galaga. The band's first release was the self-released Zombie, a 26-song EP of monster songs for children, a direct response to Jad Fair's Monster Songs for Children CD. How About San Francisco? was released on Magic Marker Records in 2000 and was mastered by Robert Schneider of the Apples in Stereo. Every Sidewalk was released in 2004, again on Magic Marker. Scott and Taylor round out the live lineup. The band's live shows were infrequent, as bandmembers reside in Oregon, Massachusetts, and South Carolina.
