The Know-It All Boyfriends
Fire Town was a garage-rock band formed in the mid-1980s in Madison, Wisconsin, from the remnants of an earlier popular local group, Spooner. Fire Town were signed to a major label and published two albums, In the Heart of the Heart Country and The Good Life. Fire Town separated in 1989 as the members' production commitments grew.
Sharing duties on vocals and lead guitar were Doug Erikson and Phil Davis, bass guitar performed by Tom LaVarda while on drums was Butch Vig. Vig would later go on to become a notable rock producer; Erikson and Vig would later team up with Fire Town's audio engineer Steve Marker to form the multi-platinum selling Garbage in 1994.
In 1986, the band released the music video "Carry the Torch".
