The Attic Classic: The Attic Classic band has its roots in the cramped attic of a house in Johnstown, a four-piece punk-rock band that would become known in the area as The Flying Bobbz.
The group began practicing under the name “Four Little Pigs” in early 1996. Eventually, two left, leaving group founders Sarah Orloff (bass/vocals) and Skip Leo (guitar/vocals) wondering what to do next. Eventually, they enlisted Ricky Little to play drums. The Flying Bobbz were born.
They hit the clubs and bars, playing to and impressing listeners at every show. The Bobbz released three albums, the LP ‘Mania’ in 2001 and the EP ‘Small Town Chronicles’ in 2002, from which the Attic Classic comes from, and then in 2003 ‘Walking With the Dead.’ The Attic Classic “Remember” is the lead track from the 2002 EP.
