The Forty Nineteens are Garage Rock, Freakbeat, with a Motor City powerplant and good-time raucousness.

The band members learned their chops in LA's  Cowpunk, Paisley Underground, and Alternative scenes. They regularly played with bands such as The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Thelonious Monster, Yo La Tengo, The Gun Club, Billy Bremner and countless others. It is in that tradition that The Forty Nineteens continue their freewheeling spirit. The band is from the West Coast, look for them on the road in the Midwest and Northeast.

Steve Anthony: Radio Caroline
   "It's fun, it's brilliant and I guarantee that 'Rebooted' will put a smile on your face."

Dr Kiljoy: WNCD Youngstown
    "Rebooted" is way different than their previous efforts. Influenced by Mid 60s Surf, Freakbeat, Radio Caroline, and Neo Psychedelia Paisley Underground, it reminds me of early Doors, and The Who."
