PULLEY is a Californian punk rock band formed in 1994. The band is known for straightforward, hard-edged melodic punk rock. The band was formed upon vocalist Scott Radinsky’s departure from Ten Foot Pole, brought about by that band’s desire for a singer with a full-time focus on music (Radinsky was also a major-league relief pitcher and has played for the Los Angeles Dodgers, among others). Statement from the band “SEE YOU AT GROEZROCK IN BELGIUM IN APRIL!!!!!! This will be our ONLY show in Europe. You know we hardly leave California, and haven’t been to Europe since 2004, so we really hope to see you there!!!!!”
