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.
