The Julies

Alternative Rock
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA

“The Julies started in the summer of 1992 as three imaginary boys who wanted to build a bridge between The Cure and Ride. Or at least rip them off in trying. They became four boys–and decidedly less imaginary–in the fall when Greg joined them. He was good at drumming and the others were not. He needed some convincing about The Cure and all those guitar effects, but he came around. Sort of. Patrick auditioned for the band by playing “Where Is My Mind?” by the Pixies, and instantly The Julies were five.

The next four years would find The Julies playing shows and breaking hearts, including their own. But before riding off on separate horses into the sunset, they released a limited 6-song EP called January in 1994 which was followed by a not so limited 6-song EP called Lovelife on Flying Tart Records in 1996. Thousands and thousands of the latter were sold as the band disintegrated. Sigh.

The members are survived by post-Julies music projects and a beaming love for each other and the time they spent together. On certain moonless nights, that love can still be glimpsed hovering above Philadelphia.”
