In 1995 Steve Smith (bass), Eric Oblander (vocal/harp), and Brad Coffin (vocal/guitar) decided to get down to the business of playing blues based rock the way they heard it in their punk and classic rock infested heads. The band came flying out of the and quickly found them sharing the stage with the likes of Big Jack Johnson and War after just two weeks of being a band. Their next several years were spent in the dingy little clubs of America honing their craft. FHJ's hard acid blues has made the band critical darlings, one of the most talked about acts among everyone from NYC hipsters, to the tattooed boogie rockers of Austin, TX. They have played with Southern Culture, On The Skids, Big Sugar, Hubert Sumlin, Junior Kimbrough, and R.L. Burnside. More recently they have shared stages with Clutch, Deep Purple, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Nebula, Robin Trower, Jesus Lizard, Cheap Trick, Johnny Winter, Iggy Pop, Bad Company, Queens Of The Stone Age, Monster Magnet, and have become one of the leading lights in what some people refer to as the new underground rock movement. Tighter, stronger, American style rock without the pretenses of what passes for Rock & Roll these days, Five Horse Johnson's "The Last Men on Earth" will convert the masses out of today's 60's Garage fashion show into the early 70's arena where it so rightfully belongs... Saddle up, you are about to be run out of town!
