The Dictators NYC
"The DICTATORS!, THE DICTATORS! THE DICTATORS! Where are they?...When are they playing?...When are they coming to MY hometown??"
SUPPLY AND DEMAND!!
Fans from all over the United States and all Rock and Roll loving countries have been asking for years, DEMANDING, "WE WANT THE DICTATORS!"
The demand was NOT being met.
And then, one day, 3 guys from THE DICTATORS, the lead singer, Handsome Dick Manitoba, the lead guitar player, Ross The Boss, and the drummer, JP "Thunderbolt" Patterson, decided to meet THE DEMAND. They wanted to answer the call. They thought this music, that meant so much to so many, should not be put to rest.
So they went out and got the best, most fun bass player they knew, a man by the name of Dean "The Dream" Rispler, and they added a guitar player with a great punk rock pedigree, a man who wrote songs with and produced albums by THE RAMONES. That man was Daniel Rey.
The Dictators were complete.
Except for one thing....
Since it wasn't the totally original line up the band felt obliged, historically and as a courtesy to members who either couldn't or didn't want to play, to have a slight differentiation name wise between the first wave and the latest incarnation of THE DICTATORS.
SO WAS BORN...
THE DICTATORS NYC!
SO BE IT!
LONG LIVE THE DICTATORS NYC!
Four schmos playing Rock N' Roll! \m/
Authentic $ellout was formed in late November 2006 by Sulo King and Andy Danger. The original lineup included Marky Unknown on drums and Jeff Spicoli on guitar. The band was meant to be a novelty Punk band that was put together just for one show. The response from the show was very positive, so the guys decided to keep the band going as a side project and play shows every once in a while. The shows got better and better and in December 2007, seeing that the band was going to go full time, Jeff Spicoli left to focus on his own band, Dante's Boneyard. In January 2008, Dingo joined the band as a full time guitar player, and Authentic $ellout finally became a full time band. At the end of 2008 Dingo left the band and Timmy Two Times took over as the band's guitar player until his departure from the band in mid 2009 and was replaced by Jeremy "the Germ".
Authentic $ellout is a high energy Punk Rock band that blends old school 70's UK based Punk Rock with 80's West Coast and a blend of old and modern Rock to form what they call "Mock Rock". Their mission is to make fun of what the music industry and Rock n Roll has become. More music less production. That is the Authentic Sellout way.
Their music is something every kid and even adults can relate to, with strong messages about the realities of everyday life like songs like "Working Class Stiff". This song highlights the stress of a typical 9-5 job and is an anthem for the working man. "No End" is a song protesting against war, greed, the system, and the corruption of corporations and our nation's government. "Pretty Pretty Girl" is a funny but realistic view of the male ego when it comes to dating women. Their live show is full of raw emotion and high energy. If you haven't had a chance to see them, then definitely check out one of their shows. Authentic $ellout is going to prove to you that punk is definitely not dead. You're either sold out or a sellout.
Sculpins were formed in 02/2012 when Jarrod Monday(drummer for such bands as Too Far Gone,39 DEAD &Tijuana Marauders)discussed forming a band with his nephew Branden Parish former bass player for The Atoms. still needing a singer Jarrod mentioned his other nephew Adam Gomez former singer for Rag Doll City. In April 2013 we were ditched by our bass player 2 days before a big show, not going to cancel we gave our friend Sam a call and he learned 6 songs in less than a day and we played one of the greatest sets we have played.
