Vitamin Party plays straightforward, high energy rock-punk songs with a sound like the BUZZCOCKS playing PAVEMENT and OPERATION IVY. This isn't one of those bands formed from a "Band seeks Drummer" ad. These four started after the music they were playing together in their Oakland apartment (around 2004) got a little too awesome... and a little too loud. They found their new home in San Francisco- with no neighbors or noise restrictions- and have been gigging throughout the SF Bay area since.
Vitamin Party writes collaboratively, trades off vocals, and switches instruments even during their live sets. Their songs are honest with a good sense of humor. In February 2008 they released their first full-length album "The Revenge" on their own Get It Out! Records label. These 14 songs were recorded almost entirely live in a friend's studio in Oakland. They did everything for the album themselves. Continuing with a DIY attitude, "Back on Task," Vitamin Party's second album was released on Halloween 2008 at a show that featured the band dressed as characters from The Big Lebowski. "Back on Task" adds more craft and maturity to their lo-fi, poppy sound. It captures the intensity of their live performances and also includes the song "Robots and Beer," a longtime fan favorite singalong.
"It can be an ostentatious claim to have the word "party" right in your name, but fortunately these guys deliver. I seriously cannot stop listening to this CD: think scrappy 90's pop-punk but by a bunch of guys who are more interested in having fun, than sounding like some melodramatic-eyeliner band that passes for punk these days. Bay Area underground was built on stuff like this and they definitely keep the tradition going strong. Upbeat and genuinely well written with solid musicianship to back them up, it's pretty hard not to get at least one of their songs firmly rooted in your brain" (Sean Logic)Ashcan Fall 2009 Issue
"Vitamin Party's particular blend of smarts, talent, cockiness and humor, along with their apparent intolerance for even the slightest falsity of spirit in the creation and performance of their music, make them highly palatable even to those with a distaste for poppier types of punk. So CHEERS to Vitamin Party, say we!"- fLabels
