"On The Up Side" is the fourth release from the Minneapolis quintet The Humbugs. It follows their debut EP "Hey That''s My Bike" and the critically acclaimed "Stereo Types" and "Twist The Truth." "On The Up Side" took The Humbugs back to The Terrarium, one of Minneapolis’ premier recording facilities with producer Jacques Wait(Semisonic, The Soviettes}. The bands'' goal to make a completely cohesive album intertwining 60''s pop with early 80''s new wave. The result was eleven tight, concise musical nuggets that strive to take you away to a sugary pop wonderland. Of course "On The Up Side" has the signature layered vocals, jangly guitars, and the ultra tight rhythm section. Since "Stereo Types", The Humbugs have toured from NYC to Chicago to San Francisco and many places in between. They will be heading back to Chicago for their 9th consecutive appearance at the International Pop Overthrow Music Festival in April.
intelligent and cleverly constructed songs with interesting melodic structures, some great harmonies and top quality pop-tastic guitar.

The Humbugs are more than just a sum of inspirations(all of them the ''right'' ones), they are a band with an approach that is just making effortless and great music with nary a trace of pretension. Engaging and much more than just casually enjoyable

rich pop sound born of high-quality musicianship and palpable passion. Each melody fit perfectly with the next, but each also had a character and life of its own. A killer pop outfit. Few groups of musicians communicate so well, or mesh so completely.
