Blame Ian. He said to start a band for Churchill's 2009 Summer Rock Showcase, so we did--taking our name from an old Kids In The Hall sketch about a terrible garage band.
Brian was all "I'm already in two bands", but we didn't care. We set up at his home studio and started playing. After a few sessions we started to sound downright tolerable. Now we're inflicting our irregular mix of comedy, charisma, and musical craft on the unsuspecting denizens of South Florida.
With our membership ranks swelling and our own dedicated practice space (The Hive), Armada! is poised to take over the world. Just don't tell the British Navy.
