In 2004, the founding members moved to New York City where they reunited with high school girlfriend Heather Peregrim. Peregrim was actually a real musician, and had been professionally touring and recording for the last 3 years. At first Peregrim was skeptical about "those two dumb bitches", but after the undeniable magic of that first meth-fueled rehearsal, FCC was officially formed. Drummer Sarah Maci-Keller, a professional acquaintance of Peregrim rounded out the group in late August 2004.
The FCC sound is all over the place, blending everything from rock to trip hop. "We like to listen to a lot of different styles, so it seems pretty natural we'd make equally diverse music" states Tarantino. "Plus you can only enjoy Karen O's stupid fucking voice for like 15 minutes before you want to punch her in the tits. So we try to avoid boring our fans with the same song 15 times in a row. That only works if you're Pink Floyd". .
Fight Crash Companion also refuses to play gigs, at least for now. According to bassist Dubois, this is matter of convenience as opposed to an artistic statement. "We hate hauling shit to and from sleazy clubs just to play for a couple slutty bitches and a few free drink tickets. Plus we're girls, so we're weak and can barely lift our heavy amplifiers. "
In 2005, the band was signed to Pompeii Records and released their first EP to mediocre reviews and even worse record sales. "We don't really give a shit if our music sells. Izzo has like a $25 million dollar trust fund, and she let's us live in her apartment for free and use dad's credit card."
The band is currently working on their full-length follow up, tentatively titled "Dining on Des Moines". The recordings that have been completed so far have a much heavier, more aggressive sound. The girls attribute the new musical direction to scheduling recording sessions around their collective periods.
