Five Iron Frenzy Upbeats and Beatdowns. Artist Info: Discography Album length: 15 tracks: 47 minutes, 34 seconds Street Date: 1996. Back in 1996 the music scene was heavy with the sounds of ska, a genre with a short life span that inspired hundreds of groups to enlist in its jazz/rock sound. In the few years that followed, many of those bands died (or changed to another sound to remain in business). Their first album is a memorable blast of catchy tunes and even more catchy lyrics. The first track "Old West" delivers a ska heavy sound with words that reflect the dynamic brilliance of FIF's lead vocalist and main song writer, Reese Roper. The sarcastically written song tells of an early American tragedy of the treatment of Native Americans in what some cowboys and the like believed was "Manifest Destiny.

It reminds you just how damn enjoyable a childish experience can be. Five Iron Frenzy is : Reese Roper – lead vocals Micah Ortega – lead guitar, Vocals Keith Hoerig – bass Andrew Verdecchio – drums, Vocals Nathanael "Brad" Dunham – trumpet Dennis Culp – trombone, Vocals Leanor Ortega "Jeff the Girl" – saxophone, Vocals Sonnie Johnston (1998+) – guitar Scott Kerr (-1998) - guitar, Vocals. Upbeats and Beatbowns was their first studio release, and is an amazing debut album, especially in a genre that so often receives incredibly harsh musical criticism. Not just on a elitist, skasuxxxlolz level, but also because the sound itself is incredibly difficult to successfully pull off.
