Pretty Boy Floyd
Not too long ago, when rock was about having a good time, letting your hair down and creating chaos and anarchy, four guys got together in Hollywood and formed a band. NYC guitarist Kristy Majors hooked up with west coast front man Steve Summers and laid the foundation for their dream band. They worked, wrote songs and played and played and played. The band chose the name “Pretty Boy Floyd” because it seemed to describe them – four teen toughs armed with guitar licks and teenage angst who set out to conquer the world.

On Top is a hard rock power trio based in the outskirts of Philadelphia. The sound is infused with driving rhythms, melodic riffs, big hooks, and aggressive vocals.

On Top is:
Jaron Gulino (Vocals/Bass)
Danny Piselli (Drums/Vocals)
Ric Haas (Guitar/Vocals)

ON TOP was created in late 2008 by singer and bassist Jaron Gulino(ex-Trasher, ex-BSOM,ex-Capitalist Death Machine, ex-Midnite Hellion). A three song demo entitled "Another Night of Sleaze" was recorded by Gulino with the assistance of session players Brian Davis on guitar, and John Norcorss on drums. After a few auditions the bands first lineup was complete featuring current drummer Danny Piselli (Fisthammer, ex-Vulcan, ex-Coffin Dust) and Quinn Dougherty on guitar. After only a few shows in 2009 the band parted with Dougherty and gained two guitarists; Austin Perez(ex-Trasher) and Ethan Ballick(ex-Trasher). The quartet recorded a six-track EP entitled "ON TOP" in 2010 and supported it with a slew of local shows. This lineup of the band was compromised toward the end of 2010 with the departure of Perez and also Ballick a few months later. The band took a brief hiatus at the start of 2011 and returned in May with Gulino and Piselli still intact, and the addition of guitarist Alex Kulick (ex-Striker). The power trio spent the summer playing locally to prepare for the recording of their first full length in August of 2011. "Top Heavy" was released November 15th, 2011 by Horror Pain Gore Death Productions. The album consists of eleven ripping tracks, four of which are rerecorded versions of older songs found on the first two releases.The band spend the rest of the year promoting the album's release, playing shows all over the tri-state area. The beginning of 2012 see's the band in the early stages of preparing material for their sophomore release. The band plans on touring throughout 2012 in support of "Top Heavy".
