Our Wrecked Machine
Five extremely old dudes from Delaware playing the shitty pop-punk music that they grew up listening to.
OWM started as a group of good friends who just wanted to write and play the style of music they grew up on. Influenced by bands like New Found Glory, Saves The Day, Fairweather, The Movielife, The Ataris, they set out to write pop punk they way they remembered. Currently, the band is focusing on writing and eventually recording a record.
Imagine 25 year old kids who refuse to fully grow up making music. Pop Punk mixed with rock.
Whiskey, PBR, and good music
i was adopted. Maybe. My older brothers told me that they found me, living naked under a log in the woods of Pennsylvania. They took me home and convinced my mum to let them keep me. i now doubt the authenticity of most of this account, although i do fiercely cling to my affinity for my native Pennsylvania. My first instrument was the kazoo. i wrote 7 songs on guitar when i was 6 years old. Then, i quit playing guitar cause my super-arsesome brother made fun of me in front of his cool friends for my strange style. Anyhow, life is a confusing thing, and music helps me make sense of it. Well, that i not true; i would like to officially retract that statement, but i will still leave it for you to read, because it seems true. Nothing makes sense, but music is one of the few places where that is permissible.
When i was 8, i saw a kindly, beardly man playing a drumset made of buckets in Baltimore. Something broke in the atmosphere that night. From that time on, i was the plight of my pop's tool shop. i was a chubby, little bucket-stashing rat. i went home and made myself a bucket drumset. On the center garbage can, i spray-painted "BS," which stood for "bucket set," of course. Music has been a way of life ever since i was young. In recent years, i have hit the byways by way of the melody. A lot of my songs are about traveling. i have kicked around Southern Africa and crossed North America with friends made by my silly, home-seeking songs. i have released two official albums, one of which is available on iTunes. It’s called "Going Places." You may hear that title and think it to be some silly proclamation of big dreams. Nope. It is more of an observation; i like to go places. i like to be places. It is not named for some deep-seated desire for a successful musical career. i already have that. You know how i know my music is successful? My grandad recently told me that he uses my first album, "Pretty Good Songs: Volume VII" as his alarm clock every morning!
