The Attachments

Ben, Mark, Rob, and Michael formed The Attachments in 2005 in a desperate attempt to mend their broken hearts. Earlier that year while vacationing in the U.S. Ben had met and fallen in love with a tall brunette named Karla. Little did Ben know that Karla was dating his American look-alike, Mark. Ben went around to beat the hell out of Mark, but when he saw what a great guy Mark was he backed off and started seeing Jessica instead. In those days anyone could go with Jessica, which explains why Michael was doing just that. Michael was a psychopath who had been stalking a girl on the F-Train in Brooklyn until she finally slapped him on the face and sent him off to California. Anyway, one day Jessica had double-booked her 2pm slot, and when Ben and Michael showed up at the same time the three of them decided to go for a walk along the Berkeley marina instead. There they saw Rob laughing hysterically at his soon-to-be ex-girlfriend (who must remain anonymous). She had made some wisecrack about his yellow sheets and he knew it was time to let her go. Still, Rob was always one to take a hint, so he sold the sheets on Craigslist, and who should buy them but Mark? The minute Karla saw the sheets she freaked out and broke off the relationship, but by this stage Mark didn't care. He had met Rob who had met Michael who had met Ben who didn't like Karla any more anyway. So they formed The Attachments instead, and this is their story.

The story of the Attachments is lyrically told on their self-titled EP release. The catchy pop sound prevails through the most of the songs. If you liked the Morning Benders and the Fits, then you should check out the Attachments as well.
