It must be one laugh after the other being a member of Harvette's inner circle. It's obvious the LA-based trio likes poking fun at just about everything, including themselves, as evidenced on the 14-track, self-titled debut.

Band shifts into full speed with strange, saucy sound
They're Fivespeed. Relatively unique sounding. Amazingly clean for the local scene. Decent. Really decent. They've played with Jimmy Eat World and Chris Cornell's brother, and they're headed for TRL. (OK, so, maybe they're not headed for Totally Retarded Losers isn't that what TRL really stands for?)

Sweet band bleeds life into mangled music scene
For most of its history, Arizona, with Phoenix as its cultural hub, has been to the art and music communities of the world what a second-rate actor is to the orb of great medicine: A joke.

DJ class puts new spin on study time
