Described by The Deli Magazine contributor Tracy Mamoun as “surprising, experimental, and fun like rock ‘n’ roll should be,” Nasalrod is a collaborative vision. The ferocious intensity of drummer Spit Stix (a founding member of the seminal L.A. punk band Fear) is a major driving force behind the Portland quartet. Armed with their notoriously frantic live show, Nasalrod has found that originality and insanity can go hand in hand. Lead singer Chairman’s sneering, kooky yet soulful vocals soar over a sound that is simultaneously melodic, violent and convulsive. Stix, guitarist Mustin Douch and bassist Mandy Morgan (formerly of Recess Records band Berzerk) provide a sonic backdrop that is the twisted and quirky heart of Nasalrod. The band is now performing its frenetic act in support of their upcoming full length record entitled Building Machines.
“The genre police will never close the case on Nasalrod. You can’t call them punk because you’d be selling them short. They don’t play noise rock because their songs have structure, even a dance-ability at times. You could almost call them a pop band, but they’re way too heavy and aggressive. They’re a band of musical masterminds that can’t be caught.” – Aris Wales, The Portland Mercury
