The East Detroit-based proto-punk outfit Death formed in 1973 around the talents of siblings David, Bobby, and Dannis Hackney. The brothers, who had spent previous summers banging out soul and funk jams, began to gravitate toward the deafening assault of bands like Black Sabbath, MC5, Alice Cooper, and the Stooges, resulting in a volatile live set and demo that found favor with Detroit's burgeoning underground rock scene....
Chicago-based heavy rock band, known for its outrageous, often disgusting, live escapades. ~ Rovi
Playing garage-flavored punk rock with a Southern accent, a messed-up and bluesy undertow, and the gleefully destructive impact of a 15-year-old with a bag of firecrackers, the Black Lips are an Atlanta-based combo who after their debut in 2000 soon developed a reputation as one of the Peach State's wildest bands....
Before it became synonymous with speedy rock songs, the term "punk" started as prison slang for someone who was homosexual. Either definition works for Hunx & His Punx. In 2008, after fronting the theatrical electro group Gravy Train!, flamboyant hair stylist Seth Bogart (Hunx) went on to front Hunx & His Punx, a garage punk outfit with infectious Ramones melodies and lyrics about cute boys....
Channeling doo wop, Buddy Holly-like early rock rhythms, 1960s girl groups, and garage psych bands, with a dose of R&B, surf, and punk all thrown in, too, Oakland, California's Shannon and the Clams are led by the woops, yelps, and impassioned, powerful vocals of bassist Shannon Shaw, with Cody Blanchard (vocals, guitar) and Ian Amberson (vocals, drums) rounding things out....
Tucson-based weird-punk act cum one-man '60s pop wrecking crew led by Justin Champlin. ~ Rovi
Though the members of Orange County punk pop group the Lovely Bad Things had known each other since high school (or before, in the case of siblings Brayden and Camron Ward), they only formed a band once they had already graduated....
Serving up bouncy punk-pop that sounds a little like a cheerier take on their former band Mika Miko, Bleached features sisters Jennifer and Jessica Clavin. After Mika Miko disbanded in 2009, Jennifer took a break from performing music, although she and Jessica continued to write songs together....
The Tijuana Panthers got their name from the little black ceramic panther that was a present from their neighbor Max Baker—yes, the Max Baker who they named their first album after, and who deserves a bio all his own—and they got their sound from that strange place where punk bands crash into pop music and come out the other side, bristling with hooks and hitting three-part harmonies almost by happy accident....
