From the Band
Chew Toy is a three-piece American indie rock band from Macomb, Ill. The band consists of singer/drummer Josh Fink, guitarist Mark Twitchell and bassist Justin Georges. Chew Toy was formed in 2005 after Mark moved from Chicago to Macomb.The ties between these three go back further. Fink, Georges, and Twitchell grew up in the same hometown of Carthage, Ill., (population 2,700) and started playing music together in 2000 in a different band. Once it broke up not long after when Twitchell moved to Arizona to pursue a recording arts career while Fink and Georges moved 25 miles East to Macomb to start attending college. From 2001 to late 2004, Fink, Twitchell, and Georges were in constant contact, often trading song ideas, structures, and lyrics back and forth to each other via e-mail. After Twitchell’s return to Macomb, the band moved into a three story home, where Chew Toy began practicing, writing and recording. Most of the songs included on their debut E.P. — Drawn Together — were recorded in the early days of the band in the basement of this house. Chew Toy played their first show in October 2005 at a small club in Macomb. After 2005 the band began playing more regularly, and soon developed a small fan base in the close knit music community of the surrounding area. The band continues to tour and play at various music establishments and DIY venues throughout the Midwest. Their sound has been compared to Dinosaur Jr., Whiskeytown, Uncle Tupelo, Guided by Voices, and Pavement, among others.
