Originally a cover band named Nutella, the aptly named German pop punk act Itchy Poopzkid formed in 2000 in Eislingen an der Fils.
They released a demo, Two Thumbs Down in 2001, and followed with another EP length release, ...Having A Time, in 2003. They built a reputation for their live show, which included instrument changes mid-set as well as rants between songs that would go on to be included as bonus tracks on later releases. Their first album, the live Fuck-Ups...Live! was released in 2004, and the band signed with Where Are My Records around the same time. 2005 saw the release of Heart to Believe, and by the time of 2007's Time to Ignite, the band had played several festivals, opened up for Canadian quasi-punker outfit Sum 41, and released a handful of singles, of which "Silence Is Killing Me" broke the top 100. A new album was planned for 2008. It would be their fourth. ~ Chris True, Rovi
