Worm Suicide and the Devil Club (Austin, TX)
Worm Suicide formed in South Texas 1996. Old punk rockers, performed on tons of comps including Samhain tribute records, Misfit compilations, GG Allin compilations. Lots of shows on the record books and good times with East and West Coast touring acts, from punk, to metal, to Oi, to hardcore, we played with them all…
Poor Dumb Bastards (Houston, TX)
Poor Dumb Bastards were formed in March 1991 by long time hetero life partners and musical collaborators, Mike Porterfield and Byron Dean. The initial interest was to form a band and a sound that captured the twisted and bizarre sense of humor of the two. Drawing on their collective influences and experiences from some of their earlier work, bands like Cretinoid, Plutonium Flatheads and the Byron Weird Group, Mike and Byron created a genre all their own, hence “Texas Drunk Rock” was born. The now legendary live shows and creative duct tape use, has seen the band through some tough times. The death of Guitarist Hunter Ward in 2007 almost put an end to the journey. In 2008 PDB decided to get together and finish the album “Price of Rebellion” a fitting tribute to Hunter. PDB has won three Houston Press band of the year awards and one song of the year in 1997 for the at the time unreleased classic true story of “My Dad Two Whores and a Crackpipe”. Poor Dumb Bastard’s second ever show was opening for Smashing Pumpkins at the now closed Emo’s Houston. Playing with bands like Fear, Killdozer, Joan Jett, Marky Ramone, and many more. This enabled PDB to carve their initials on the bathroom door of the Texas music scene. Through the many years and many lineup changes, these Ill-minded sewer rockers have stayed true to their founding principals. POWER, PERFORMANCE, PERVERSION
Screech of Death (Houston, TX)
“..the righteously named Screech of Death, a relatively new “midtempo old-school punk” combination of two Texas punk warriors and one L.A. import. The Californian is Lisafer, Screech of Death’s lead singer and bassist, whose impressive rap sheet includes hitches with storied goth-punks 45 Grave, D.I., Nina Hagen and most recently Snapper, which also featured Rikk Agnew of the Adolescents.
Joining her is drummer Arthur Hayes, an original member of notorious cornholers the Hickoids as well as The Next and Mystery Date, and a longtime San Antonio scenester who used to book bands at legendary Alamo City dive Tacoland. Although it’s his first band playing guitar, J.R. Delgado’s local punk credentials span notable names like Doomsday Massacre, the Party Owls, Anarchitex and Sugar Shack; he also owned and operated landmark punk/alternative club the Axiom long before east downtown’s so-called “Warehouse District” was trendy.” – Houston Press
The Bad Drugs (Houston, TX)
Any good time, especially a Rock Revel, would start by taking a pop of The Bad Drugs. Their punk stylings are the perfect outlet for your angst. Come rock with these rebels in the battle against the City of Houston’s unscientific noise ordinance.
