Flickerstick

Flickerstick's curious road to rock & roll "stardom" began in 1997, in Denton, TX. Aspiring frontman Brandin Lea met guitarist Cory Kreig, and with the help of Brandin's brother Fletcher, guitarist Rex Ewing, and area drummer Dominic Weir, Flickerstick was born. Mining a familiar, if unremarkable sound somewhere between Brit-pop and modern rock, the band was a hit at parties. Flickerstick's 40-ouncer might have forever been half empty if it weren't for VH1. In 2000 the cable network cast the quintet in the inaugural season of its reality show/talent contest/soap opera Bands on the Run. The series pitted four groups of musicians against one another (four separate vans, four separate tour routes, gigs in the same city at four separate venues) to compete for a grand prize of cash and the carrot of a major-label showcase. While the show had its moments, it was Flickerstick that corralled most of the press and face time with its endless off-stage antics. Their music? Well, it's safe to say that Brandin and his pals were more adept at living the life than rocking the house. Nevertheless, in the end, all the swearing, booze, women, and brawling was memorable enough to secure the band a VH1 victory. They eventually signed a deal with Epic, reissuing their debut Welcoming Home the Astronauts in November 2001. The album was resequenced, touched up with tighter vocals, extra guitar, and more keyboards, and all-star mixer Tom Lord-Alge was brought in to work some magic on the source material. The result was entirely professional, but expensively marginal. Flickerstick embarked on a tour in support of the album, but by a year later, Epic had dropped the group from its roster. Undeterred, Flickerstick signed with Boulder indie What Are Records and issued the live document Causing a Catastrophe in November 2002. ~ Johnny Loftus, Rovi

One of the greatest albums ever written from start to finish. Fell in love with them on Bands on the Run, caught them live twice, and this album sees regular rotation on my playlist still. Wish they were still around.
Saw this band probably a dozen time and their live shows just couldn't compare to their studio records. They just never really translated their live energy into a disc and that is just really sad because they were one of my favorite tickets.
Caught these guys in Salt Lake City. Way better live than on cd
They sound like all the other boring bands from that time period. What's up with that ?
Seen these guys live back in Fort Worth, shortly after the band on run competition. They put on a good show.
They rockkkk! Will always love them
I miss hanging out and drinking tons of jager with these guys! It was always fun to party with them here in NJ when they toured. Great songs on Tarantula as well!
Miss this band!!!!
I miss them too. Still listen to them a bunch.. Do any of them have side bands or any rumors of reunion?
I miss this band like crazy. Best live band I've ever seen.
Great live band. Cool guys. Too bad they didn't pound their chests enough to compete with the utter s**t that was 2000's rock. Also, the bio left out the fact that Todd Harwell, former Doosu drummer replaced Dominic Weir on drums, making them a much stronger band. Cheers to these guys, they did it right.

Used to love seeing these guys live. Never missed a chance when they came to play in San Marcos. Even in small venues they put on a very energetic show and blew it out. They were pretty cool guys too, came and partied with us at my buddy's house after a show one night and threw back some beers. I agree that if they were "handled" correctly they could have had a better run...
Flickerstick is greatness! Sorry, though if they somehow found their way on to your Godsmack station. I mean, who could ever write a song as good as "Voodoo" anyways.
I hope this emo crap dies sooon! Lady GaGa had more balls than this band.

Flickerstick were awesome live (saw them 4 or 5 times over the years) wrote and recorded some really good songs (mostly Tarantula and Live from Atlanta IMO) and were very entertaining in their stint on reality TV. I too am sad they're gone, but if it was time then it was time. What amuses me is the level of negativity that is generated in people who did not care for them: Yeah they were kinda poppy, yeah they were once on TV, so what? If you don't like it listen to something else and be quiet.

@ Michael Seguso: Keep plugging away buddy but one day you're going to have to actually learn how to play an instrument and move out of your parent's basement (leaving your air guitar behind). OH, and stop taking out your fat-agressio n on these guys. . . unlike you, they made it.
These guys utterly su*k and as a working musician for 25 years, I am sick and disgusted at the whole "reality show" make a star thing!!! American Idol and all the other shows past and present are ruining the music industry right before our eyes, promoting no talent jackasses in the name of TV ratings!!! Hard working REAL musicians like me are left to toil in obscurity while a bunch of idiots have their 15 minutes!!! Worst part is the american culture can't see it and are complicit in it!!!
Grew up with Brandon and Fletcher. These guys obviously rock! Smile is one of my all time favorite songs!
ive seen flick three times weve met the guys and they are awesome bunch of dudes wish they got what they deserved they rock .
captainsiege
nobody seems to like "never enough" but thats my favorite song by them, also i cant find it anywhere online
ive seen flickerstick one time back in early 2001 they were good i miss this band and remember watching the vh1 's band on the run series and really enjoyed that.
Great band, never had that "single", but who cares. Wonderful live
I will miss Flickerstick . . . . t h e y weren't the best band in D/FW...but they wrote some great songs and knew how to put on a show. They were fun. They were catchy. I loved 'em. I guess they were a guilty pleasure for me.
maybe you should take a long faded dirt nap.
Where do so many bozos like these guys come from???? This is definitely the worse era for pop music ever.
I saw them twice when they came to Nashville. Really good band-could'v e been great if somebody would've handled them right. Sad that they broke up.
i miss flickerstick .

They will be playing their final shows ever this weekend at the House of Blues
Bands on the Run -- greatest reality show ever.
