WILD EVEL & THE TRASHBONES have the genre Garage Punk attached to their hats, their shirts, their ties and their winkle pickers. What started as a side project of The Incredible Staggers’ frontman and members of former teenbeaters The Roadrunners has grown to be a unique quintet, trotting the globe with their version of Rock’n’Roll. After some lineup changes Fernando Terror, the latest addition, has replaced Wild Evel on Farfisa and thus unleashed the performance monster again. On drums Bernie T. Bone is beating the furs, Paul Howl is pulling the strings and Murphy Morphine takes care of the basslines.
Though all members have their personal roots in various subcultures, they agree on communicating in the beat and the groove of the 1960s – of course with an increase on tempo and all the power of the amps, while they are still not too cool to dress up unison and go wild on stage. You’re likely to hear influences from The Cramps, Billy Childish, The Miracle Workers or The Fuzztones but also from earlier pioneers such as The Sonics, Screaming Lord Sutch and Howlin’ Wolf. Additionally the Trashbones’ appearance especially gives tribute to all the 60s Garage Unknowns you may or may not know from samplers like the Teenage Shutdown or Back From The Grave series.
Introducing Stereo Death Ray, a freshly formed garage rock duo hailing from Vienna. Born at the start of this year, the band delivers 60s-style guitar tones immersed in reverb and distortion. Infused with contemporary elements from punk, trash, surf, and rock and roll, the band has sculpted a distinctive sound that they're eager to unveil at their debut show.
