The Bottom Dollars

The Bottom Dollars

“The Bottom Dollars channel The Clash’s energy with an Americana twist.” – Popdose

“It’s having a flask tucked, at all times, inside the pocket of any coat that’s ever been worn. It’s keeping that flask healthily full with something that coats.” - Sean Moeller, Daytrotter

Yeah, that’s pretty close…

The Bottom Dollars were formed in the basement studios of Cameo Gallery in Brooklyn, NY in the spring of 2010 as a “punk soul project” by co-founders Brian “Cherch” Cherchiglia (vocals, guitar) and Evan “Buffalo” Berg (drums).

After bursting onto the scene with their breakthrough EP, The Halcyon Days, in 2011: The Bottom Dollars made it their mission to become one of the most captivating bands in American rock and roll; winning over audiences and gaining accolades in NPR: All Things Considered, Daytrotter, Village Voice, Relix Magazine. No matter the publication, they were all in unanimous consent of The Bottom Dollars’ explosive and notoriously unpredictable live performances. And, with good reason; this loud, bizarre amalgamate of psychedelic rock, bowery-style punk and soul is something you can only get from the Dollars, only their way.

Now (as a follow-up to their 2014 LP, Meet Me In Cognito) the Dollars return with a new collection of recordings entitled Welcome To The Neighborhood: a politically-charged concept album produced by Ayad Al-Adhamy (Passion Pit, Team Spirit) set for release in 2016.

“Semi-professional sonic assassins.” — CMJ

“This is a rock and roll band whose reverence for classics like The Clash and The Band made their concert an appealing fusion of garage and punk tropes playing off whiskey drenched southern rock licks.” — Pancakes & Whiskey

“A ‘can’t miss live act!’” — No Pulp Music

Raccoon Fighter

Raccoon Fighters gravel-edged garage/ blues songs evoke sonic imagines of such latter day mavericks as T-Rex and Link Wray coupled with a more modern day rock n roll bravado, the likes of Brian Jonestown Massacre and The Greenhornes. However you choose to define their jaw-dropping, physical assault on the senses, Raccoon Fighters music is captivating. Described as “Brooklyn’s latest top-shelf indie export” – (Chaos Magazine), these quick-witted gents are “the thinking mans Stooges” whose dark and frenetic nature was galvanized by early singles like, ”South Parlouritta” and “Butcherette” with its brazen tales of abortion, lost love and general relationship skullduggery.

Their new album, ZIL, released October 1, 2013 continues on this raucous path, but has evolved into a more expansive sound. Recorded in Upstate New York and mixed at the renowned Magic Shop in NYC their dirty, gritty auditory diatribe is still apparent, but is now matched with colorful harmonies and pulsing melodies; Marc Bolan would be licking their lips with envy. Nylon magazine recently tipped ZIL, saying it “should really be the soundtrack to the final season of “Breaking Bad”. As the taste makers at Brooklyn Ski Club wrote, “Mark my words, you hear it here first, etc: You will be a fan of this band in the very near future”
