Originating from the remains of their 2002 band Anth'm,
Frankie and Anthony picked up the pieces and got this band rockin'
SPECTOR 45 formed in April of 2003
and has been playing ever since, building both momentum and fans.
We hit Crystal Clear Studios on August 9th & 10th, 2003, and recorded our first cd 'Sixteen with a Bullet'. The average age of the band was sixteen at the time... so we knocked out 16 tracks!
We threw an All Ages release party at GOOD RECORDS on September 25th, 2003 packed the house, and had the #2 best selling CD of the week!
On our second CD, we went for quality over quantity resulting in a five song EP called 'Girls Cars & Rock n' Roll'', which was recorded in Spring of 2004, at the Kitchen Studios in Dallas.
Again we threw an All Ages release party at GOOD RECORDS on August 27th, 2004 packed the house, and had the #1best selling CD of the week!
Now it's 2005 and we're bustin ass tryin to get beyond our currrent D/FW roots and maybe, just maybe get a break somewhere along the way.
Then again you only get the breaks you make for yourself...
