BURLY POP-CORE, JERSEY CITY STYLE
FRIENDS, ROMANS, COUNTRYMEN were a Jersey City based rock band that formed in 1990 when founding members Sean Adams and Dan Murphy met at St. Peter’s Prep. After various members rotated in and out over the course of 10 years (see info box on left), Brian Musikoff joined ranks on bass in 1995, thus completing the band’s longest lasting line-up. FRC was most active until 2001, at which time families and careers expanded as well as relocations to Connecticut and Mamaroneck largely took away from band time. During their heyday FRC played with greats such as Pavement, Sunny Day Real Estate, Dead Milkmen, Doughboys, Garden Variety, Shirk Circus, and American Standard.
In 2003 Sean and Brian formed STUYVESANT with Footstone frontman Ralph Malanga, who continue to play today.
FRC & FOOTSTONE demonstrated their roots of origin when they reunited to play at a special show at Maxwell’s in Hoboken on Saturday, February 6th, 2010.
Dromedary reissued their last CD, I Am Spartacus, in 2010.
