Formed from the remnants of prior punk, grunge, and classic rock bands from Victoria and Nanaimo. Tarbox formed over an interest to make music that doesn't sound like anything on Victoria radio. A sound that we like, influenced from the records we love. Sacrificing music for an air-play friendly sound would be against the only rule we have. A technical version of Iggy and the Stooges, the feedback of Sonic Youth, the riffs of 70s heavy rock, with the feel of 80s and 90s grunge and punk doused with an unhealthy mixture of whisky, cigarettes, and beer.
