Formed in 1997, The Creature Comforts is made up of Chris Tolle, formerly of Action Man, on guitar and vocals, Brian Everard on bass, J.D. Warnock on guitar/keyboards, and Bill Brimblecom Jr. on drums.
From the hands of producer Ed Rose (Tenderloin, Paw, Ultimate Fakebook), the band has created a powerful anthem-full pop album packed with earnest songwriting, memorable melodies, and solid guitar riffs recalling the post-punk sound that helped fuel the late 1980's and early 1990's rock explosion. Already the CD has been praised by Pitch Weekly and its readers as the Album Of The Year and the lead track was selected as the Song Of The Year.
The band was also named Band Of The Year at the 2000 Kansas City Music Awards (Klammies).
Their No. 1 rule: Never beat someone over the head with a good lick because the charm wears off quickly. Their instinct for writing catchy pop tunes, sporting modern fashion, and generating a high octane rock and roll show has made them a favorite live band in the Midwest.
Already the band has played with national acts like Everclear, Dinosaur Jr., Fastball, and Mudhoney. The Creature Comforts plan to continue their spread of charming power pop and passionate songwriting with a constant barrage of touring and by turning people on to the "Prairie Rock" sounds of The Politics Of Pop.
