PAINT FUMES drew first blood together in the year 2011, sharing a mutual love of garage scuzz and brain-chain reaction, and the connection was immediate and fierce. Sounds congealed via weekly seances at the Sewercide Mansion in Charlotte, NC and relentless touring which brought their unhinged reverberations to points all across the USA. Like the lovechild of Link Wray and Cheetah Chrome, raised by Lemmy on the streets of Venus, they sweated out the fever every night in ecstatic style. By the time Slovenly Recs got around to spitting out a couple classic 45s and their debut platter Uck Life, most true heads and even those way out of the know alike had gotten the message. Deep within a blitzkrieg of treble and feedback, there were real live tunes to sink your teeth into – the stuff that's stuck in your head when you wake up in another dimension.
In the year of the horse, the 'Fumes swelled in ranks with Ian Rose and Ben Carr of NC synthtopian punks Natural Causes, starting twelve thrash bands and surviving on nothing but hallucinations of vegetarian chimichangas. Together this crew ruined the beaches of Europe with Los Vigilantes, converted hundreds on the all-night diesel-powered festival circuit and in the midst of it all took a vacation down to Puerto Rico and committed to tape a new full-length entitled If it ain't Paint Fumes it ain't worth a huff!
The Fill Ins
The Fill Ins are high-octane, fun and energetic rock n roll; sporting catchy guitar riffs and an unapologetic attitude.
Pulling influences from all corners of the rock spectrum, The Fill Ins have been bringing their brand of rock n roll to the people since 2013 with no plans on slowing down anytime soon.
With the release of their debut album"Hipster Killers" in 2014 (listed in MyGlobalMind Magazine's "Top 10 Best Albums of the Year") and "5th Time's The Charm" in 2015, the group started crafting their sound and finding the elements that worked best with the message they wanted to give; just have some fun. In late 2016, The Fill Ins partnered with No Profit Records to release a split vinyl 7in titled "Hit The Gas", a song the band considers to be the start of a new era of sound and attitude. By 2017 the band had been in the studio recording their new album; "The Time Is Now" gaining the attention of local and national publications and spawning 3 music videos, even partnering up to create an energy drink for musicians (Hate Energy) named after one of the tracks on the record.
The band believes the point of live music is to have an escape from the daily stresses of life and to have some fun with this existence; so turn it up, and get it loud; this is The Fill Ins!
"Holy smokes are you in for a pummeling. Charlotte NC's 'The Fill Ins' return with another dose of full throttle, punk-fuelled, burn-down-the-shithouse rock'n'roll action that will have you declaring your blood-oath allegiance to 'em before it's over!" - Classic Rock Magazine (#242 - "The Time Is Now" review)
"Perhaps the best way to describe The Fill Ins and their sound is simply, high energy rock n roll. They blend sharp riffs with fast pacing, slick guitar solos, and more than a little punk attitude. Essentially, The Fill Ins remind me of a 21st century Ramones, only heavier and faster, and with better guitar solos. After that analogy, you might want to toss in some references to Motorhead as well." - Craig Hartranft (Dangerdog Music Reviews)
