Detroit's prolific vocalist-guitarist Fred Thomas began his career in a band called Lovesick. He established himself as a major singer-songwriter with the Flashpapr, whose textural, moody folk-rock was enhanced by upright bass (Zach Wallace) and violin (Jacob Danzinger) on Pain Taped Over (1998) and Do What You Must Do (Westside Audio Laboratories, 1999).

Thomas' next project was Saturday Looks Good to Me, the moniker under which he recreated two albums that mimicked the sound of the Sixties: Saturday Looks Good to Me (2000) and Cruel August Moon (2000). Having become a real band, they released All Your Summer Songs (Polyvinyl, 2003), Every Night (2003), and Fill Up the Room (K, 2007). Sound on Sound (2006) collects singles and EPs.

Fred Thomas' then released the solo albums: the acoustic Everything Is Pretty Much Totally Fucked Up (Little Hands, 2002), with the anthemic When You Fuck Things Up With Your Baby, Turn It Down (2004), with the frenzied Your Car, and Sink Like a Symphony (2006).

Having relocated to New York, Fred Thomas formed City Center, that debuted with the EP Saturday Looks Good to Me's Cold Colors and the album City Center (Type, 2009) in a style similar to Panda Bear's psychedelic folk-pop (Killer Whale, Bleed Blood).
