YEAR FORMED: 1998
HOME TOWN: San Francisco, CA
Hailing from the West Bay Area (San Francisco), Vulgar Pigeons was conceived with one common goal in mind: sheer brutality without compromising originality. Initially formed in 1998, Vulgar Pigeons immediately began writing material. Vulgar Pigeons released their first self-titled 7"in the fall of 1999 on Nonsense Records. This release made a definite mark and got the whole underground scene buzzing about this new contender on the grind scene, Vulgar Pigeons. To solidify the 7" and the bands presence, Vulgar Pigeons played countless shows around the area with the likes of Impaled, Exhumed, Dillinger Escape Plan, Benumb, and so on. Wasting no time, Vulgar Pigeons went right back into the studio to record their second 7", Genetic Predisposition. This would be released on Howling Bull on both 7" and CD formats (The CD containing the first 7", bonus unreleased tracks, and a live set from radio station KZSU). Along with the new Genetic Predisposition release Vulgar Pigeons appeared on a 625 Records compilation entitled Barbaric Thrash Detonation. Supporting these releases Vulgar Pigeons played at the 2000 November to Dismember in San Bernadino, Ca. and toured the Pacific Northwest with label mates, Yellow MachineGun.
