Duane Peters Gunfight
Duane Peters, nicknamed "The Master of Disaster", is a punk rock singer/songwriter and professional skateboarder, who has been at the top of the sport for almost 30 years.
Peters was one of the very first high profile skaters to embrace punk rock, cutting his hair short and narrowing his jeans when most skaters were still wearing 1970s fashions. However, in the mid-1980s, Peters embraced a "mellow" lifestyle. This included distancing himself from the punks of the era, even joining a "white-funk/new-wave-romantic" band in 1984. Peters was named Transworld Skateboarding's "Legend" in 2003. He is a professional skateboarder who rides for Pocket Pistols Skates, and also a subdivision of the Black Label Skateboards called Emergency. In May 2005, Black Label Skateboards released a biographic film, entitled Who Cares: The Duane Peters Story,and a second documentary is planned by havocTV, focusing on Peters' path to sobriety. Along with skateboarding, Peters is a well-known punk rock singer. He has formed bands such as the US Bombs, Political Crap, Die Hunns (also known as Duane Peters and The Hunns), Duane Peters Gunfight, and Exploding Fuckdolls. He also owns a record label called Disaster Records,which represents bands such as The Briggs, Civet and The Hollowpoints. In late 2008, Peters started another independent record label called Indian Recordings. The second Duane Peters Gunfight album entitled Checkmate will be released through this label in March, 2009.
¡La Vasa! was born in Santa Barbara in late 2009 as an unhealthy male punk band weighing in over 500lbs of muscle and beer. At first this new baby of a band had no name and was even forced to perform multiple shows without a name to it's own. So sad. Now with a name and shows under their belt, this group of rebellious heathens formed from bands such as The Irritants, Surrounded By Assholes, Silent Meow, Forgainst It, and Trite, are ready to punch your earhole with energy the likes of which have never been felt.
¡La Vasa! has played with many monstrous punk bands including: Mad Caddies, Pour Habit, The Dwarves, Agent Orange, Total Chaos, Voodoo Glow Skulls, The Dickies, Battalion of Saints, Reagan Youth, Angry Samoans, The Grim. Hit the Switch, The Generators and so many more awesome bands!
When ¡La Vasa! is near your hair will stand on end, toenails will rot, knees will explode, mouth will go dry, and a new sense of certainty that everything is not okay will take over or something like that. Bringing back old school brutal punk tracks that are needed more than ever, La Vasa! is here...
SB’s newest rock creation. 3 piece band, experimental punk rock.
