The Presidents of The United States of America (also known as PUSA) were formed in Seattle in the wake of the early nineties post-grunge era by childhood friends Chris Ballew (vocals, “basitar”) and Dave Dederer (“guitbass” and backing vocals), who were joined by drummer Jason Finn before their self-titled debut album hit double-platinum in 1994.
Their style was a refreshing antidote to the grungy angst Seattle had become a byword for, consisting of short and humorous punk-rock songs, which proved popular with critics and audiences alike and earned the band two Grammy nominations.
PUSA’s enormously successful debut included such legendary hits as “Peaches”, “Lump” and “Kitty”, and was followed by worldwide tours and a second album “II” in 1996. By the end of 1997 the band had split up, followed by a rarities album “Pure Frosting” and a farewell concert in 1998. The band had a brief reunion in 2000 under the shortened moniker of “The Presidents” and third album “Freaked Out and Small”, followed by another longer hiatus.
Two more albums followed (2004′s “Love Everybody” and 2008′s “These Are The Good Times People”) with Dederer’s replacement Andrew McKeag, and this tour will be a very rare chance to catch the band in the very intimate surroundings of Concorde2.
