Philadelphia-based band The Disco Biscuits recently released their double live album The Wind at Four to Fly (SCI Fidelity Records/April 18). Back in fine form after the departure of their longtime drummer, this summer The Disco Biscuits hit the road with new drummer Allen Aucoin. The auditioning process was lengthy but they found that Aucoin jumped straight in, meshing with the Biscuits' in the groove, solid feeling called BISCO.
2006 marks The Disco Biscuits' eleventh year of rocking out in their unique musical smorgasbord style which fuses rock, electronic and classical music. The band met at the University of Pennsylvania in 1995 and started off with frat gigs but quickly made the switch to the club scene. Their eclectic live shows gained them a rabid following, making them leaders in the jam and groove scene.
