1. The Flys (Us 1994-2002)

The Flys were an American post-grunge group, formed in Hollywood in 1994 and now on indefinite hiatus as of 2002. They had success with the 1998 top five hit, "Got You (Where I Want You)", the video for which featured Katie Holmes from the hit TV show Dawson's Creek. "Got You (Where I Want You)" was featured on their debut album "Holiday Man" in 1998 and also appeared on the soundtrack for the 1998 MGM film Disturbing Behavior, which starred Katie Holmes. Their music is also featured in The Crow Salvation soundtrack, with the track "I Know What You Want". "She's So Huge" was featured in the 2001 film Sugar And Spice.

With the single "Got You (Where I Want You)" reaching #5 on the Modern Rock Charts and being featured in Disturbing Behavior, The Flys 1998 album "Holiday Man" album reached # 109 on the Billboard charts. A second single "She's So Huge" peaked at #32 on Modern Rock Charts. In 2000 The Flys released their second album, Outta My Way. The album contained the single "Losin' It", as well as two samples from two songs by The Beach Boys from their Pet Sounds album, "Here Today" and "Caroline, No".

In 2002, The Flys went on indefinite hiatus. In 2008 The Flys announced on their MySpace page that, "The Flys Are Back.", and released an iTunes single (a cover of "Hey Jude") along with a remake of their biggest hit, entitled "Got You Where I Want You 2008."

2. The Flys (UK 1975-1980)

They had been around since the mid seventies in the guise of Midnight Circus but with the times a changing however, they wisely changed their name to the more punkish' The Flys'. Ironically they were signed by EMI who had rejected them as Midnight Circus!
As opposed to the more traditional 1234 buzzsaw style of punk The Flys come at it from a different angle while still retaining the sense of urgency. Sounding like the Cure or vice versa on the brilliantly entitled single Love & Molotov Cocktail / Can I Crash Here / Civilization (1978 EMI). Try also Waikiki Beach Refugees / We Don't Mind The Rave (1978 EMI). By then not a trace of punk as we know it Jim but catchy. In fact listen to it closely and hell, they could have flogged it to Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers! For what its worth Neil O'Connor was Hazel O'Connor's brother. A steady release of singles and an album saw them veer towards a Mod-ish look & sound. But with increasingly diminishing returns 1980 saw them call it a day.
Band: Neil O'Connor - Vocals & Guitar.
David Freeman - Vocals & Guitar. Joe Hughes - Bass. Pete King - Drums.
