About The G

Harking back to ‘90s alternative rock, lo-fi indie rock group The G pool from Pavement, Hum, and Dinosaur Jr. to make shoutalongs that are rich with fuzz guitar and hyperactive drumming. In the mid-2000s, while running 423 Tillery -- an underground art space in Austin, Texas -- Doug Foulk and Patrick Troxell started getting heavily into punk and garage rock. The two played in a few bands apiece, and then decided to relocate to Philadelphia. In 2008, they adopted the name The G and recorded their first demo, Hidden in Plain Sight, with new member keyboardist/percussionist Nicky DiCicco. After several months of touring on the heels of a second EP, titled This Mind and Motion Universe, DiCicco departed from the group to focus on his solo project Rock and Roll Moron. Nicky’s sister (and Patrick’s wife), keyboardist Anna DiCicco, came on board to pick up the slack, along with second guitarist Pete Joe Urban. In 2009, SHDWPLY Records released the four-piece’s debut, Hold My Gold. ~ Jason Lymangrover
