In 1994 the Beers Brothers began Cards in Spokes, pouring out their own brand of ruff and ready songs from an Orange Park, FL rehearsal studio. Within three months they recorded a four song demo that snagged the ear of John Yates, mastermind behind the San Francisco label Allied Recordings. He signed the band and released two albums and a single. After their second album, Cards In Spokes was finally beginning to take their brand of melodic punk to another level. They were playing everywhere, like the Warped Tour, alongside bands like the Bosstones, and Social Distortion, and all the DIY halls in between. They were being called the best Mod Punk band since the Jam hit the scene back in the late seventies. Cards In Spokes disbanded in mid 1998 due to family problems after a lukewarm national tour.
