While their name misleadingly points to New York origins, Matt Caughthran (vocals), Joby J. Ford (guitar), James Tweedy (bass), Jorma Vik (drums) and Ken Horne (guitar) actually formed the punk-cum-early-glam-metal hybrid the Bronx in Los Angeles circa 2002. After putting out demos on their own White Drugs label, they were almost immediately signed to a major label contract with Island Records. Over the next several years, the Bronx released three self-titled albums, produced by such luminaries as ex-Guns N' Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke and Soundgarden/Hole engineer Michael Beinhorn. In that same span of time, the group canvassed the country, touring with peers such as the Riverboat Gamblers and Priestess.
