Keith and Jon met while recording at a friend’s house. They meant to jam together again but it took a while. Keith's buddy Jason had just moved back from Brooklyn following the demise of Bigbootė so they invited him to play. Songs were written. Dave, who had previously worked in projects with Keith(Laughing Sickness) and Jason(6Pack De Heseuss), was invited to check out a practice and ended up singing. The songs got better. Needing a drummer, we called on our friend Brendan (Loiterers,The Dead Army) who said he'd give it a shot, no guarantees. But IT ROCKED. We started working out new songs (about 1 per practice), and played our first show at the Boogie Down Love Palace with Jimmy Lawler, The Jesse Minute, Royal Dano, Jellyfish Heaven, and the Dead Army. There were only 4 songs and we had no name (Dave introduced us as Hakuna Vagina Dentata). Afterward, we decided on SANJURO FIELDS.
On 10/30/10 our 1st full set blew away a packed BDLP, followed by Autoverse, Royal Dano, Sans Jeff, a surprise set from RABID, and the Dead Army.
