buncha dudes from different places. buncha beers. buncha noise.
Tough Shits
Tough Shits
The Tough Shits are a rock and roll band from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Their unique sound is a sonic missive to their garage forefathers, without being strictly, just another scuzzy rock band. Their musical influences are informed of: The Rolling Stones, KISS, Sam Cooke & The Clash. Their stylistic influences come directly from bands similar to the New York Dolls. They have shared past bills with touring bands like Jay Reatard.
Fletcher C Johnson
Fletcher may have established his roots playing with King Tuff, but his own material truly reflects his rock 'n roll pedigree. Starting off sounding like "The Ballad of John and Yoko" being covered by the International Submarine Band, "Happy Birthday" establishes itself as a nostalgic amalgamation of 60s stylists playing a house party, as the vocals kick in with "When the dance has barely started / and the cops are at the door…" But where most of today's groups convey a good time through recklessness, Fletcher sings with measured, joyful observance and a subdued compliance.
Zoners
Started as a recording project by Matt McCalvin in Jan 2013 ZONERS are a combination of jittery synths, slicing hooky guitars, barreling bass lines and machine precise drums ZONERS create a full force wall of sound.
