With a gimmick that involves the lyrical aspiration of a wealthy lifestyle to accompany their 18th century attire of powdered wigs, velvet knickers, and pancake makeup, the Upper Crust's intention of aspiring the worst rock & roll idea clicked upon their 1994 formation. Formerly of the Boston surf act the Clamdiggers, the Upper Crust provided power pop antics that have been described as "AC/DC meets the Buzzcocks at a theater showing of This Is Spinal Tap." After packaging their trademark on the 1995 album Let Them Eat Rock, Emperor Records eventually followed up with the Upper Crust's second album, The Decline & Fall of the Upper Crust, two years later. ~ Mike DaRonco
