How T.S.O.L. Bred LA 'It' Band Fidlar

Speaking of LA Weekly, their print feature this week on Fidlar, the garage punks from Highland Park, revealed that Zac Carper, Brandon Schwartzel, and
and Max Kuehn have pretty solid OC ties. The Kuehn brothers' dad is T.S.O.L. keyboardist Greg Kuehn.

According to the Weekly, the “young Kuehns started a band called the Diffs when they were 13 and played with punk greats like Adolescents, Circle Jerks and the Germs. They opened for the Adicts at the Key Club.  'Going to their house is weird,' says Carper. 'Duane Peters will be hanging out there.'”

On sister blog West Coast Sound today, Fidlar talk about Kuehn's contributions to their sound:

On growing up with their dad in legendary punk act T.S.O.L.:

Elvis Kuehn: My brother and I grew up playing music. My dad gave Max a
drum set for his first birthday and got me a guitar later and was like
'That's what you're each gonna play.'

On their adolescent band, The Diffs:

Elvis Kuehn: Max was 12 and I was 13 and we played with all the old punk
bands: T.S.O.L., Adolescents, Circle Jerks, Germs. It was weird getting
to open for all our legends.
