Miami, FL's, the Crumbs formed out of their love for the Ramones, '50s rock, and an excessive habit of coffee and alcohol. Consisting of Raf Classic (guitar/vocals), Johnny B (guitar), Emil 4 1/2 (bass), and former Chickenhead vocalist Chuck Loose (drums), additional inspirations of the Dead Boys, the Pagans, Crime, the Stooges, the MC5, and other pre-1977 punk acts paved the way for the Crumbs' sound. Recess Records released the band's first EP, I Fell in Love With an Alien Girl and I Think I'm Goin' to Mars With Her, in 1995, which was soon followed by the Far Out Records 10", Get All Tangled Up, that same year. After signing to Lookout Records, the EP Shakespeare was released in 1996 as was their 1997 self-titled full-length. Chuck Loose eventually departed in 1997 to focus on the Drug Czars, while his replacement, Grim, was swiped from fellow Miami punkers the Basicks. By 1998, Lookout Records followed with the Crumbs' second album entitled Low and Behold.
