The strongest friendships - the ones that last - tend to begin when you're young.
That's certainly the case for New York skuzz-punx The So So Glos who first began crafting schemes in the sandpit.
Heroes of the Stateside all-ages scene, the band's cult appeal has taken them coast to coast - even appearing on Letterman in the process.
New album 'Blowout' is already available in the United States, with Votiv/Caroline International due to arrange a British release this May.
Alongside this, The So So Glos are set to play a string of British dates in the company of Ezra Furman. When not accompanying that fine gentleman, the band have found time to arrange a one off headline show.
Taking place on February 20th at London's Garage venue, tickets are on sale now.
