The Goddamn Gallows
Mikey Classic, Fishgutzzz, Baby Genius, Avery, Jayke Orvis, Kevin Mulrooney, Joe Perreze
The Goddamn Gallows formed in 2004 by founding members and Lansing/Detroit natives Mikey Classic on guitar and vocals, Fishgutzzz on upright bass, and Amanda Kill on drums -replaced by current drummer Uriah Baker (aka; "Baby Genius") in 2006. The trio started out migrating around the West for a time, holing up in Hollywood squats and squalid apartments, before releasing several albums: The Gallows EP (2004), Life of Sin (2005), and Gutterbillyblues (2007), and finally hitting the road nearly full-time to establish their presence in the psychobilly-country scene while honing their self-described "twanged-out punk rock gutterbilly".
In 2009 the addition of Avery, a fire-breathing, accordion and washboard player, as well as Jayke Orvis (formerly of the .357 String Band) on mandolin and banjo, prompted The Goddamn Gallows to explore many new directions with their songwriting and in their live performances. As evidenced on their most recent 2009 album, Ghost of The Rails, and as witnessed by their spectacular and tireless live shows, The Goddamn Gallows began to forge a path founded on their very own brand of contagious primeval abandon: an unpretentious and from-the-gut carnivalesque smorgasbord of parts old time revival, circus sideshow, and good old-fashioned rock and roll. The result falls dead center into a head on collision between something like a Western honky-tonk impromptu parking lot rodeo, and Suburbia (the 1983 Penelope Spheeris cult classic film)
Though still officially Michigan-based, they have toured relentlessly since 2007, practically living out of their van and regularly performing as many as 200 dates a year. They continue to rapidly grow a devoted following built on their visceral and volatile blend of multiple American music styles, and frantic live energy -but still with just enough hardcore and punk influence to make your parents hate it.
The Calamity Cubes
Brook Blanche, Joey Henry, Kody Oh!
The Calamity Cubes! are a Kansas thrashicana band featuring guitar, banjo, and upright bass. They sing about love, drinking and murder, themes not unlike those found in the Bible.
The Calamity Cubes!, a Kansas based roots band, with members Brook Blanche, Kody Oh, and Joey Henry play a very original style of music, hard driving banjo, upright bass, and acoustic guitar make up the instrumentation. The music would best be classified and a blend of traditional Country, Folk & Bluegrass, with the fire of an 80's Punk Band. They take heartache and pain seriously, you can hear it in
many of their tracks, soaked in misery and whiskey, the Cubes! always deliver a song for any emotion. The Cubes! travel the country on tour, regularly! These guys have been slowly making a name for themselves over the years and captured the hearts of music lovers worldwide! With three releases under their belts, the Cubes! are creating a catalogue of timeless roots music one track at a time! This Farmageddon Records Band will surely satisfy your need for real roots music!
