Park Police are a three piece indie rock/pop trio from Baltimore, MD. They started playing together in a band called Jook in 1995. While in Jook, they had the opportunity to share the stage with bands like George Clinton and the P-Funk Allstars, Cheap Trick and The Meters. They have played in places such as Washington D.C.'s 9:30 Club, the side stage at Nissan Pavillion in Virginia, New Yorks City's Wetlands, among others.
In 2003, they formed Park Police and began playing high energy rock shows around the Mid-Atlantic region. Influenced by such bands as Guided by Voices, the Who, Built to Spill and Klark Kent, they wrote and recorded their debut album, ""Ranchero"" and released it in the summer of 2005.

Here's what some critics have said of ""Ranchero,"

"Its rock is hook-laden but doesn't pander merely to brainless pop, catchy without being vacant. Surging changes start and stop midsong without detracting from tune's momentum. And while the songwriting is crafty and witty, above all Park Police is loose and fun. It's obvious that the band enjoys itself as the tracks tick by." -Baltimore City Paper

"...there’s nothing more comfortable than cruising around in a beat-up pickup – even half of one – and Ranchero is just the CD to blast from the busted speakers. Not only are many individual tracks bona fide driving songs (especially and obviously “Next Gear”), but the album as a whole is a rollicking, we-don’t-slow-down-for-speed-bumps kind of affair. Go get a jump-start, duct tape the brake lights back on and hit the road with Ranchero. " -mudsugar.com

"There`s so much cool stuff going with Park Police`s "Ranchero" it`s hard to pin down....These guys are from Baltimore, MD and you know, there`s sounds of other cool bands from that area (Myracle Brah, Montgomery Cliffs, Bastards Of Melody, in particular) but the corner the listener finds themselves in is pure contentment with the experience of enjoying some really, really fresh power pop with an soft-ish indie rock kick in the ass. " -notlame.com

"Think Jesus Urge Superstar era power-pop smarts in a record about the open road. The lyrical peaks are witty enough that I'd warn Steve Malkmus that he's been lifted of his thesaurus, and I'll be damned if the music didn't feature summa that unexpected waggle that made the Archers of Loaf so danged good."" -Dceiver.blogspot.com
