When Particles Collide
Rock / Alt rock from Bangor MN
Sasha and Chris met in Bangor Maine during a 2010 local production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Sasha was cast as a guitar playing Yitzhak and Chris played Schlatko, the band's drummer. Six months later the two were a band, and three years later the band became a marriage.
Since forming in 2010, When Particles Collide has self-released five sets of recordings: a six song demo, a four song EP, a ten song full length, a five song EP and a nine song full length. Their most recent recording, Photoelectric (June 2014) was released both digitally, on CD and on special limited edition pink vinyl.
Sasha and Chris tour the US extensively and during 2012, 2013 and 2014 averaged between 70-95 shows per year. During the summer of 2014 they completed a marathon 8 week, coast to coast tour of the entire US. All of their booking and promoting, like their recordings are 100% D.I.Y. keeping the American spirit of self-reliance, tenacity and resourcefulness alive and well.
The music of When Particles Collide includes Southern Rock choruses, New Wave a la Blondie vocals, lightning speed Green Day-esque drumming, classic Motown grooves and Queens of the Stone Age-style riffs -- and yet somehow it all sounds like Chris and Sasha.
ROCK from Birmingham AL
Formed in 2006. Worn out vinyl selections of "Who's Next", "Moving Pictures", "Dream Police", and "Zen Arcade". And that's pretty much what we sound like.
There have been many highs and lows in the 12 year saga of Happy Lemmy. Regardless, the musical and friendship bonds among band members have remained increasingly strong. With a 'collective effort' method of song writing, the style and emotion of each band member has a significant presence in every song. Heavily influenced by 70's progressive rock and British blues rock bands. Happy Lemmy's music is raw and edgy with melodic vocals and metaphorical lyric content.
