Presidents Of The USA e` il progetto lanciato a Seattle dal cantante e chitarrista Chris Ballew (nei Supergroup a Boston con Mark Sandman), dal chitarrista Dave Dederer e dal batterista Jason Finn (ex Love Battery).

Il sound di Presidents Of The USA (PopLlama, 1995) e` forte e duro come impone la scuola di Seattle, ma sincopato e fratturato come di moda in era funk-metal. Le canzoni si ispirano liberamente a modelli degli anni '60, dalla Mighty Queen di Dylan ripresa in Feather Pluckn ai Kinks plagiati in Lump. Il gruppo e` comunque soprattutto specializzato in divertenti numeri funky nella vena dei Primus, a partire da Boll Weevil. A conquistare le classifiche e` infatti la filastrocca un po' clownesca di Peaches. Ogni tanto ci dimentichiamo che Seattle fu seconda soltanto a Detroit (Stooges e MC5) in fatto di violenza sonora. I PUS ce lo ricordano con un piglio scanzonato che non guasta. La loro sfrenatezza atomica potrebbe rappresentare il prossimo stadio del powerpop.

After the single Fuck California/ Carolyn's Booty did not succeed in keeping the interest alive, the band released II (Columbia, 1999), an anthology of nonsensical songs that only occasionally (Puffy Little Shoes) matches the modestly entertaining wit of Peaches.

Chris Ballew also recorded the single Twig/ Lint Cake (Cosmic) with Beck under the moniker of Caspar And Mollusk.

Chris Ballew started a new career under the moniker Giraffes (a one-man band), releasing collections of spartan and demented folksongs: 13 Other Dimensions (My Own Planet, 1998) and The Days Are Filled With Years (Orange, 2000).

Shortening their name to "the Presidents", the band reunited and released Freaked Out And Small (Musicblitz, 2000), an album of biting power-pop and garage attitudes.

These Are The Good Times People (2008) had literally nothing to say, and didn't even say it too well (having lost their original guitarist).
