The Figgs are a rock band out of Saratoga Springs, New York. First formed in 1987 (under the name "Sonic Undertones"), their output has included at least nine traditional full length albums (two on major labels in the mid 90s), multiple EPs and singles, a live album, and gigs backing Graham Parker since 1996 and on Graham's 2005 release Songs of No Consequence, as well as Tommy Stinson of The Replacements fame.
The original lineup of the band included Mike Gent (guitar), Pete Donnelly (bass), and Guy Lyons (drums), who all went to high school together. When Lyons left for a spell in 1989, he was replaced by Pete Hayes. Lyons returned in 1992, this time on lead guitar, to make the band a foursome. A record deal followed late in 1993. Lyons left the fold for good in 1997, after recording Couldn't Get High, which followed the band's drop from Capitol Records. The remaining three Figgs have soldiered on, with several further albums and regular concert appearances, as well as careers separate from the band.
