"Gob" are a punk-pop band from Vancouver, British Columbia formed in 1994. They are currently working on their 6th album. Their hit single "I Hear You Calling" was featured on Electronic Arts NHL 2002 video game. The band is heavy on bass lines that include unusual (but not unwanted) bass "distortion" in them. They performed a Rolling Stone cover of "Paint It Black" for the 2004 ’Salem’s Lot miniseries, which is not included on any of Gob's albums. The song also appeared for the 1999 horror movie Stir of Echoes. Other songs that have been featured on other EA video games are: "Give Up The Grudge" (Madden 2004), "I Hear You Calling" (NHL 2002), "I've Been Up These Steps" (NHL 2003), and "Sick With You" (NHL 2003).
The roots of Gob trace back to Theo Goutzinakis (guitars, vocals) and Tom Thacker (guitars, vocals) playing in a band called Tommy's Biscuit. Gob formed out of the ashes of Tommy's Biscuit in late 1993. The band formed in Langley, British Columbia, Canada, after Tom and Theo met 'Wolfman' Pat Integrity. The band released it's self-titled EP (9 tracks) that year. They were quite successful, in 1995, after Too Late...No Friends was released. A few of their video...
