Biggy Stardust and His Wretched Hive
Biggy Stardust and His Wretched Hive is a 4-piece punk outfit hailing from Charlotte, NC. We’ve played many shows with local acts but have also been booked to open for several national and regional acts, such as The Misfits, Antiseen, Agent Orange, The Mentors, Joe Buck Yourself, The Have Nots, The Sex Slaves, Scott H. Biram and Thunderlip. We also played The Heavy Rebel Weekender in 2009.
We released our first studio album, Never Met A Guitar I Didn’t Wanna Destroy, in 2009. We recorded the album in true DIY fashion with minimal equipment. The sounds you’ll hear are lean, mean and raw. We’re in the process of writing songs for a second album and playing shows around the region.
Don’t look for “-core” or “-abilly” on the end of any description. It’s just rock-n-roll, not too far removed from The Ramones or the Kinks. There’s no political message or strong sense of fashion, despite being the best looking band in town. Not cool enough for ya? Not “indie” or “emo”? Fuck off.
CHALKIES are garage punk rock n roll.
It's good for you.
"All the animals come out at night - whores, skunk pussies, buggers, queens, fairies, dopers, junkies, sick, venal. Some day a real rain will come and wash all this scum off the streets. I go all over. I take people to the Bronx, Brooklyn, I take 'em to Harlem. I don't care. Don't make no difference to me." ~ Travis Bickle
Born in the city that never sleeps, Lucifer Jones is a mixture of the worst in humanity and the best in music.
Sonically, Lucifer Jones is a cross between Black Sabbath and Black Flag...alternating speed-demon punk and hardcore between strung out slabs of doom that tell stories of loss, drug abuse, murder and the hopelessness of the modern condition.
With their blood drenched performances and memorable tales of human failure the band is not to be missed on the stage or on record...
PowerBall has a long and storied history... But let's talk about now, because the edge of the next moment is where this band really lives and thats how it stays vibrant and real... we're not about chasing trends, never were (or we would've signed one of the deals we've been offered). We are ALL about embracing the now and finding ways to increase awareness and harness outrage in order to create change.
Powerball is proud to attack the future with founding member and lead vocalist Mitch G (Former Pit Stop and Blind Spot 18 years in PowerBall), Bass Player Josh K (12 years in the band), Guitar player Thommy Berlin (Stevie Stilletto, Radio Berlin, Big Velvet Elvis, etc..) and Drummer Danny Knieriman (Creeps, Ringworm). This friends have come together to help Mitch take his vision and theirs into a new era. Veterans of the scene here to make some noise and do whatever they can to breath life into the local art of protest and individual thought. We're recording new material and wanted to share some of the new demos with the world...
Powerball, Two full lengths, three eps, one record, 7 skate videos, 9 surf videos, 1 canadian TV show theme and 3 songs in Japanese extreme sports stores SO FAR!!! Much more to go. You may remember us from opening for the Circle Jerks, Fishbone, Total Chaos, Jugheads Revenge, Big Wig etc... or from Truckstop Magazine or Thrasher... However you have shared this experience with us (or if you are just checking us out now online for the first time)... WELCOME and thanks for all the great shows and amazing friendships the last 18 years have brought. Go out today and stir things up... be heard... and take care of each other. The ball is rolling again!!!!!
