In a nutshell, 3rd Alley formed in October 2004 in Mudd's home studio. It started from a 4 track demo that Zack had made and sent in to Long Beach Recs. Zack on vocals, songwriting and guitar, Tyson on bass and Mudd on Drums. We put out "After School Special" (aka. ASS) one year after the band's inception. It's been released in Japan, Europe and Australia, with all different bonus songs. Mudd was inspired by McDonald's "collect them all" campaign, which turned out to be a great idea. The band has supported the album by touring across america, europe and mexico.
