Fishboy is a Denton, TX indie rock band with an unhealthy love of power pop and narrative songwriting. Founded in 2001 by native Texan Eric Michener, the group has released a handful of story based albums, EPs, and 7" records that are often accompanied with comics drawn by Michener. Art Guards is a 31 minute album made of nine lyrically interconnected songs about artists making stuff, with varying results. Songs about a soon to be hall-of-famer ruined by his hatred of the wave ("Ex-Pitcher"); A fast food critic trapped in his job ("Fast Foodie"); An "Aspiring Lighting Technician" and her dad a "Former Performance Artist"; a relationship between a fake doctor ("Actor Doctor") and a fake nurse ("Researching Writer"); and more come together in the album's ninth and final track ("Final Frontman"). At their heart, the songs attempt to tackle the awkwardness and purpose behind why we create.
