Higgins is a rock band that was birthed out of the cultural wasteland that is Suffolk County, Long Island. Two young men, frustrated with the lack of melody and tasteful drumming around them decided to take matters into their own hands and do it themselves. Inspired by the likes of the Kinks, Beatles, Syd Barrett, The Byrds, Yes, ZZ Top, Zappa, XTC, Hall and Oates, Squeeze, ELO and modern cult heroes like Lilys, Marshmallow Coast, The High Llamas and the Cardigans they set off to make records that would be worthy of their own obsessive record collections. Higgins has always embraced the DIY aesthetic and has worked diligently (if slowly) to keep a constant stream of creative output available to those interested. You could do worse than getting into Higgins.
