Caffeine-soaked and reeking of various petroleum products, 24 Hour Cardlock burst onto the Vancouver music scene at NewMusicWest 2002. After witnessing Cardlock's show at Vancouver's Marine Club, The Georgia Straight's Mike Usinger said "...the 7-piece band's 80 proof brand of country-tinged shitkicker swing almost makes me squeal like a pig." We're pretty sure that this was a compliment, especially considering how drunk he was and how he ripped the bands he didn't like.

While literally several people have referred to 24 Hour Cardlock as a "trucker band" the title does not tell the whole story. In truth, 24 Hour Cardlock is a "really good trucker band."

The band now operates two divisions (Central and Pacific) depending on where Cabover Pete is at any particular time. He's the singer, and the only one who knows all the words, you see.
