Biografia:
A pequena biografia da banda (que não existe mais), a seguir transcrita, em tradução livre do inglês, foi extraída do site Music Scene.
A 45s era uma banda composta pelos irmãos Matt Hales e Ben Hales, mais Stephen Cousins e Matt Vincent-Brown, que originalmente se apresentava com o nome de Ruth.

The 45s
A banda assinou contrato com a Mercury Records em 2001, para a gravação de dois singles, que foi cumprido com o lançamento de "Something Real" e "Waiting For My Heart To Break". Em sequência, realizaram miniturnês em pequenas salas para promover os dois álbuns, em 2002, mas, com a vendagem em ritmo lento, o grupo não conseguiu prorrogar o contrato com a gravadora (embora um álbum tenha sido gravado e disponibilizado no website da banda [nota minha: o site não existe mais]). A banda se separou, e logo depois Ben e Matt formaram a banda Aqualung, após o sucesso da canção "Strange & Beautiful", composta para um anúncio da Volkswagen.

I met this band in North Carolina maybe 15 years ago. One of the dudes told a funny story about being in a club in LA and seeing Duff McKagan from Guns'n'Roses hanging out. Duff forgot his jacket, so the 45s stole it (of course). And not only was it a bad-ass leather jacket, but it had a bunch of Valtrex (herpes medication) in the pocket! Double score!!

Anyway, they seemed like cool dudes, and their band rocks. Also, one of them recommended that I read "The Dirt" about Motley Crue, which I did and I'm glad I did because it's hilarious.

Thanks for the post!

Oops! Never mind that last post. I was thinking about a DIFFERENT band called the 45s (or The Forty-Fives). That band was more of a garage rock band.

This one seems okay, too, but the valtrex anecdote was for the other band!

Happy New Year!

Thanks for the comment, although it is not related to the same band. Happy New Year for you too.
