Sloppy Seconds began in 1984 in Indianapolis, catching fire with their Ramones-inspired second-wave punk sound which they call “junk rock”. With an assist from Paul Mahern, Toxic Shock signed the band and released Destroyed in 1989, following a self released 7″ in 1987 entitled The First Seven Inches. The band has carefully nurtured their cartoonish image with considerable success. Their music has appeared on numerous compilations.
Five albums have been released so far, each on different labels, including Taang! Records and Nitro Records. Several singles and EP’s have also been released, and most of their early material has been reissued in one form or another. They have been a popular live act, more so outside of Indiana, and have toured across the US and in Europe. For several years they hosted an all day festival in Indianapolis called Sloppypalooza.
Original guitarist Danny Thompson, who left in the early days, played in the long running Indianapolis rockabilly band Bigger Than Elvis, along with Tufty Clough of Zero Boys and Toxic Reasons reknown, and Zero Boy Mark Cutsinger on drums.
