Corky

City: Miami
Years Active: 1998 -2001
Type of Music: Punk
Myspace or Website: n/a

Bio written by Juan, the drummer. Thanks for the info Juan.

Corky started in 1998 actually. Jose had this idea for a band and recruited Danny Palacios on bass and myself (Juan) on drums. Since it was a punk rock project and I was very much a hardcore kid in those days, Jose would add this "mosh" parts to songs to make it "more attractive" to me. Whatever. The name came about just like with any other band name: we were throwing around names and they were all so bad that at one point we were just throwing around stupid names as a joke. I said Corky jokingly (thinking of Corky from Life Goes On), and Jose showed up to practice three days later saying: "We have our first show", and handing me a flyer with the name Corky on it. I said it was a joke and then expressed that I refused to play under that name. But since things with this band were never 100% serious (or so we thought), we ended up playing our first show three weeks later at a warehouse in Kendall, with Caught Inside and I can't remember who else... maybe The Brown Study? Anyhow, it was actually a pretty good show! with stage dives, circle pits and shit.
At some point around 2000 or 2001 we decided to change our name if we were going to get a bit more serious about the band. We came up with The Getback, nothing out of this world but at least it sounded like a band name, not a retarded person's name (sorry). But our days as Corky definitely marked an era for all of us. It was a time of having sincere and honest fun playing music, and that was fucking awesome.

I remember seeing these dudes years ago in West Palm Beach. They were awesome live, I got a demo from them, and it did no justice to the live live performance. Unfortunately I only got to see them live once.
