Early Years

Electric Fish started in 1989 after Tropical Candy temporarily disbanded. Dylan Trenton and Justin West recruited former Trouble Brother members Peter Young and Colin Reds in 1990. In March 1990 they released their first Demo Tape called "Fly Fishing". A year later after a fight with Colin Reds over his drug use he was kicked out off he band and replaced by Matt Reds(Colin's Brother). In 1992 they released their first album "LIVE FROM DYLAN'S BASEMENT"; in 1992 Justin West and Matt Reds former MothergoosBate and left. So Dylan Ternton used Tropical Candy until 1993

In 1994 Electric Fish came off Haius and released "Ski" under Music House Records. During April they turned down a tour and decided to record a new album. In 1995 they released "Lock and Load" which would be their last album
