The Fleshtones are the only band to debut at CBGB in 1976 that hasn’t experienced an inactive year. They have, in one way or another, inspired countless other bands over the decades, including R.E.M., Hoodoo Gurus, and The Dream Syndicate, and their showmanship and musical influence is palpable in many current bands throughout North America, Europe, and Scandinavia. The Fleshtones have survived Punk Rock, New Wave, No Wave, Neo Garage, Post-Punk, Grunge, and more Neo Garage, never succumbing to trendiness, scornful laughter, liquidated record labels, or non-alcoholic beer. They were the first band to play at Irving Plaza and Danceteria in Manhattan as well as Maxwell's in Hoboken, New Jersey, and the first to be booked at the original 9:30 Club in Washington D.C.. They were one of the last bands to play Windows On The World on top of the World Trade Center. In between, they opened for James Brown and Chuck Berry, backed acclaimed English actor Ian McKellen as he recited a sonnet on Andy Warhol’s Fifteen Minutes, and anchored the infamous Pyramid Club in the East Village while helping inaugurate the legendary Wigstock drag queen festival.
The Fleshtones are one of the most active playing American Garagerock bands ever. They are from Queens, New York and were formed in 1976. Their musical influences are rooted in the Rock'n' Roll music from the 1950s and 1960s.
Their first hit single was the song "American Beat" Their debut album "Roman Gods" hit the US album charts in 1978.
Since 1987, Keith Streng, Peter Zaremba, Bill Milhizer and the only new guy in the band, bassplayer Ken Fox who joined the band in 1990, constantly release new albums and tour the world.
