Formed in Epinal (France) in 1996, Flying Donuts quickly give their first shows. A demo cassette is out in 1997 and a five track CD is following in 1997.
Their name then starts to appear in fanzines and on compilations. The band shares shows with bands such as Les Thugs, Seven Hate, Aina and Burning Heads and is geting experience and self confidence. At the same time, the band is also geting older and is finding its own style.
