Not to be confused with the British boy band of the same name (heavens no!), Boston-based psych-stoner-doom act 5ive started out as an instrumental duo comprising guitarist Ben Carr and drummer Charlie Harrold. Signed to specialist indie label Tortuga, 5ive's 2001 eponymous debut was at first only released on vinyl, but eventually received a CD version. A second effort, enigmatically named Telestic Disfracture, followed later that year and featured occasional vocal contributions from Milligram singer Jonah J. Jenkins, but nothing has been heard from the group in recent years.
