The Kickaways are everything you have ever heard in 60's & 70's rock 'n' roll...but played in a way only The Kickaways know how. With their debut LP (DesertDays) coming this fall, The Kickaways are changing music in Cincinnati. They're playing what their dirty and beloved city of Cincinnati needs and deserves...loud, kickass rock 'n' roll. And they're going to show you how to do it too. The Kickaways became a band in February of 2010. Through a month long stint in the Sanoran desert in Arizona, their album DesertDays was born. Shortly after returning, lead singer Austin joined up in Cincinnati with life-long friends, Devyn, Jake, and Adam to birth a musical revolution in their very own city. Through a series of cartons of cigarettes, hours of practices, and damaged ear drums, The Kickaways are ready to take Cincinnati, and give it what it needs...rock 'n' roll.
Cusses aren't easy to define. However, whether their guitar driven, fuzzed out brand of music reminds you of The Runaways meets The Ramones or Siouxsie and the Banshees meets Jet, or even Pat Benatar with some heavy handed riot grrrl sass, it is impossible to come away with any other conclusion than this: Cusses are bringing back real, effortless, speaker-blasting rock & roll. A band that would be
right at home taking center stage at CBGB. Lead singer Angel Bond was introduced to drummer Brian Lackey through mutual friends, and they have not separated since. The two headed to Savannah, Georgia in 2009, and met up with Brian's long time friend, guitarist and past band mate, Bryan Harder (they opened for post-hardcore legends Fugazi in their last band together!). The three formed Cusses that summer and played their first show in February 2010. And now their debut album, Cusses.
