With their distinctive, A Clockwork Orange influenced image, sensational live shows and catchy, anthemic songs, The Adicts are one of the most easily recognizable punk bands of all time. Formed in 1976, when Sunderland brothers Pete Dee and Kid Dee Davison joined forces with Monkey and Mel Ellis, The Adicts, also briefly known as ADX have released eight studio, and three live albums in their career. 

Based in Ipswich, England, The Adicts were always the jokers in the punk rock pack. The flamboyant 'Droog' image, and their urgent, high energy, up-tempo music and light-hearted lyrics, ensured The Adicts always stood out from the rest of the punk-rock fraternity.

It may have been a conscious effort to set ourselves against the somewhat unimaginative appearance of early '80s punk bands or just a perception that looking a certain way might be interesting and entertaining,' explained front man, Monkey. 

The Adicts' debut album, Songs Of Praise (which many consider an absolute must-have punk rock classic) was released in 1981, and reached number 15 in the UK Indie charts, while the follow up, Sound Of Music released a year later, blazed a trail in the same charts, peaking at number 2. 

Subsequent single hits in the 80s including 'Chinese Takeaway' and 'Bad Boy', television and video game placements for the song 'Viva La Revolution', as well as constant touring has helped The Adicts maintain a loyal and devoted fan-base all across the world. 

Despite the chart success, The Adicts are best known for their live performances, which some have described as part childhood birthday party and part carnival - complete with confetti, streamers, magic tricks and outlandish outfits. Almost 35 years into their career, The Adicts are still entertaining and amazing crowds with their inimitable blend of high theatrics and good-time rock and roll.

​Our message, such as it is, has always been, have fun,' Monkey stated, attempting to define the secret of their longevity. 'That's timeless and appeals to everyone.'

Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band has built its reputation the long, slow, hard way. After 12 years of playing as many as 300 shows each year, Rev. Peyton, the world’s foremost country blues finger-style picker, along with the biggest little band in the country has pieced together one of the most dedicated followings out there. This following is sure to eat up the band’s latest offering, Poor Until Payday, (the second on their own Family Owned Records label through hip Nashville indie Thirty Tigers) out October 5th, a country blues record that was made the right way — two feet on the ground and both hands getting dirty.

With all the power of a freight train, the Big Damn Band is known for its live shows. Rev. Peyton delivers guitar pyrotechnics the old fashioned way — ten fingers, a 6 string and an amp cranked at full tilt. In the country blues style, he plays the bass with his thumb, while picking the lead with his fingers at the same time. When he lifts the guitar behind his head to play there’s nothing but skill and 16 gauge nickel strings to make the sounds coming out of the speakers.

Beside him on stage are just two other people. His wife, “Washboard” Breezy Peyton playing with all the nuance and percussive power of a New Orleans drum line, and keeping the train moving is Max Senteney on a lean drum kit including a 5 gallon maple syrup bucket. Together they play Peyton’s wildman country blues that’s as much ZZ Top as it is Bukka White.

Never self-serious while far from a joke at the same time, Nekromantix is a musical unearthing of the biggest themes from the greatest works of monster, zombie,vampire, werewolf and b-horror fiction; ripped from literature, comic book pages or classic celluloid. Nekromantix chases a darkly romantic muse with an even darker humor. 
The Nekromantix catalog boasts enduring genre classics like the unapologetically hooky yet undeniably fierce “Who Killed the Cheerleader?” and “Gargoyles Over Copenhagen” alongside subversively sentimental cuts like “Haunted Cathouse” and “Subcultural Girl.” There are echoes of rock n’ roll’s greats and punk rock icons alike, all with modern flair.
A Symphony of Wolf Tones & Ghost Notes broadens the Nekromantix legacy with expansive ambition that never sacrifices the trio’s inherent grittiness, furiously stoking and reshaping the flames of the creative vision begun in Denmark with legendary labels like Nervous Records, through the band’s master classes in punk n’ roll albums stateside with Hellcat Records, the label cofounded by Tim Armstrong and Brett Gurewitz. 
Armed with his signature coffin bass, chilling baritone, monstrous expressions and ten-stories-tall haircut, Kim Nekroman has earned tremendous respect, admiration and goodwill from a fiercely dedicated legion of hard-partiers, rabble-rousers, well-meaning degenerates, grease monkeys, outlaw bikers, nostalgic tastemakers and forward-thinking punks. It’s a crew of supporters as diverse as the otherwise classic and timeless music the Danish-born California transplant has unleashed as leader of Nekromantix. 
Nekroman’s notorious quiff is as instantly recognizable as the coffin bass he’s slapped into submission on nine studio albums, countless worldwide tours and festivals. The quiff, of course, combines the midcentury rebel style of the pompadour and flattop with the punk attitude of New York and Europe from the late 70s. It’s a fitting symbol for the style of music Nekromantix has perfected into an art form, a rollicking psychobilly sound with reverence for the genre’s origins and predecessors, infused with an iconoclastic boundlessness that refuses to abandon the electric catharsis of unadulterated fun.
