"We're all about the groove... We are trying to bring back the smoothness of disco people seem to have forgotten... We wanted to bring back that real thing because tons of groups are jumping on the so-called 'disco train' but when I listen to their records it just sounds like machines," explained bass player "Tadpole Lowenbad" a.k.a. Bradley Swanson.
Their funky disco track "Boogie Machine" was also included on BEC Recordings' multi-artist compilation "Cheapskates Vol. 2" in 2001. And "Ooh C'mon" was included on "Cheapskates Vol. 4" in 2003.

"With the release of The Company's self-titled debut album, Pep Squad's
Bryan Everett attempts to bring disco back in a generation of preprocessed
hardcore, emo and heartless, cold electronica.... The Company may not
bring a full-fledged disco revival, but their debut certainly makes for
some fun listening. Check it out if you're a fan of the genre."
