The Fire Apes - A Perfect Day For Bananafish - 1998

From Charleston, South Carolina, THE FIRE APES' lead singer, songwriter, guitarist, and bassist, John Seymour, writes about love and relationships often using literary references, musically framed with melodic hooks. His music and words can elicit feelings that range from joy and happiness to commiseration and longing.
The feel of the music is most commonly considered to be reminiscent of such bands as The Beatles, Gerry and The Pace Makers, The Kinks, Oasis, and early Pretenders. THE FIRE APES have played in the Southeast and have gained a large following based on their performances and their first release "A Perfect Day for Bannafish". -CD Baby
