Formed in 1987, The Figgs are a nice blend of power pop and rock and roll. With ten traditional full length albums as well as multiple EPs and singles, they have become a cult phenomenon producing albums rife with hook-saturated melodies and edgy rock while remaining out of the public eye. Touring and recording as the backing band for such notable front-men as Graham Parker and The Replacements' Tommy Stinson, they have also established a reputation as a winning live act. After nearly twenty-five years, The Figgs remain a strong and relevant force to be reckoned with in this sinking boat we call the music industry.

“Steeped in the verities of 1960’s garage-rock, folk-rock and the Beatles, along with latter-day bands like the Replacements, the Figgs cling to the idea that songs are telegrams from the heart.” –THE NEW YORK TIMES

“Mike Gent delights in etching undisguised emotions into the melodies of his sweet ‘n’ snarly singing. And big-boned guitars smack these tunes home, pausing to accent lyric turns, driving verses with their churning full-chord rhythms, painting in small melodies that breathe richer life into the arrangements, yet never sacrificing a bit of bite.”
