The Control Freaks
The Control Freaks are a new band from San Francisco, and are trying to put the P. and the U. back into Punk Rock. I know what the hell does that mean? It means this band wants to put the swagger and fun back into music, which seems to be lacking today.
So remember if you hate music you will love THE CONTROL FREAKS!
The San Francisco based bubble-gummy, power pop rockers Red Planet formed in the late 1990’s and instantly took the bay area by storm with their revved up hooky pop melodies and powerhouse guitar playing. The songwriting team of Jeremy Powers and Chris Dunn produced pop gems worthy of Lennon and McCartney. Their joyfully exuberant songs about love, relationships and girls, records, cars, breakups and bad jobs earned them a Bammie (Bay Area Music Magazine) nomination for Best Bay Area Pop band. They toured the country opening for the New York Dolls’ Syl Sylvain, as well as for 80s stars Howard Jones and Flock of Seagulls.
The Mansfields are a Punk/Rock N Roll cocktail consisting of 50’s Rockabilly, 60’s Garage & 70’s Glitter/ Punk. Influences consist of Jayne Mansfield, The Ramones, The Cramps, Low budget B Movie’s, Trashy pop culture and Bad Hookers.
The Woolly Bandits
It all began with a legendary 60’s group The Seeds. When original front man Sky Saxon joined up with Rik Collins, bassist for the Woolly Bandits. Rik took them on four European tours and three National tours. They also released the critically acclaimed “Red Planet” album. When fans and industry types wanted to know who the younger band was backing Sky, Rik along with guitarist Mark Bellgraph decided to start The Woolly Bandits, named after a nickname one of Sky’s girlfriends had given him. Since then Sky is no longer with us. But The Woolly Bandits carry on in the spirit of The Seeds. As a three piece The Bandits released “Say Hello To My Little Friend” But things were about to change radically in the form of a new female lead singer. The Woolly Bandits motto is “fear no music” so don’t try and box them in, they’ll smash! Their story is still being written…..
Deadbolt™ is a rock band from San Diego, California, U.S.A.. They describe themselves as "The Scariest Band in the World." The band often features two bass players, who are called "The Wall of Thunder."
Deadbolt's music combines surf rock, goth, psychobilly and blues sound with unusual and offbeat lyrics, a style the band dubbed "voodoobilly." Besides the release of several CDs, the band has toured both North America and Europe extensively.
The band is known for its use of power tools during their live sets, and it is customary to be showered with sparks of red-hot metal during their live shows.
