Eyeball Skeleton is an American indie rock band from Washington, D.C.. The group has attracted attention for its pre-teen membership.


Eyeball Skeleton is composed of Bill Brown (guitar, percussion, programming) and his sons Charlie Brown (guitar) and J.J. Brown (bass), ages 10 and 8 as of 2005.[1] Brown founded the group after hearing his children attempting to mimic his own music-making in the house.[2] Their name was invented by the children; JJ provided "Eyeball" and Charlie provided "Skeleton".[1] The group writes songs based upon song titles, lyrics, or pictures created by the children, which are then fleshed out musically with the father.[3] Their debut album, #1, was released on My Pal God Records on April 5, 2005.[4][5][6] Following the release, the band appeared on Pancake Mountain and toured with The French Kicks and Drums & Tuba.[7]
