Leave it to The Phantom Surfers to release an instrumental surf record without any music, or singing. "Rock Stardom for Dumbshits" is a how-to for making it in the music industry. Bands are offered advice on how to compromise everything they believe in for the chance of making a living!
SHANNON & THE CLAMS
Shannon & the Clams are from Oakland, California and comprised
of Shannon Shaw, Cody Blanchard, & Nate Jr. Many have been possessed by their voodoo infused warchants containing the ingredients for a psycho seance. It's like a Ouiji board that spells out "I drink your blood"!
Things couldn't get any sleazier than a group with a mustached
man named Sean Starling. Mr Cumstain has toured America's
slummiest ghetto's playing rock & roll music and has avoided
getting scabies, rabies, and having babies. This year he'll be
doing a Weezer set as "Sleezer".
HUNX AS "GAYRACULA"
Hunx's larger than life persona has developed into an
over-the-top stage show, which could find Hunx crowd surfing,
making out with the audience, and bodily fluids being splashed
around. He developed a Gay Dracula character, for a song called "I
Vant to Suck", and then Gayracula was born!
THEE TEE PEES
These mohawk clad freaks will take your peace pipe and shove 'em where the sun don't shine no more! Leave it to the chief to draw back his bow, & pierce your ears with a sound that will ruin your lunch hour!
Take out the papers and the trash because the Chuckleberries are gonna bring you back to a time when it was still naughty to get caught makin' out by your teacher. But don't fear, these cool cats will teach you how to be hip in a world where squares rule the land, and Marvin Berry played in a band.
POOKIE & THE POODLEZ AS "THE DONNAS"
On one of the hottest days of the year I saw an underwear-clad man scream into a yellow telephone receiver, yelling. "Don't fear, the Pookster is here"! Pookie and the Poodlez ruled this show with a 1960's, scum-punk surf sound and from that day on, we declared Oakland the land of Pook!
YOGURT BRAIN AS "SMASHING PUMPKINS"
Yogurt B. is the Brainchild of bay area guitar genius Stevo. He has
played in almost every bay area punk band, and has also done
Halloween cover sets by the Monks, Weezer, Alice Cooper and will
now attempt to put Bill Corgan's head on a stick and bring it on
home with the Smashing Pumpkins.
The Scouse Gits are a Sacto band of rock and roll fans. They play fast and loose, gleefully ripping off Chuck Berry, the Downliners Sect, Howlin' Wolf, the Sorrows, the Rolling Stones, the Pretty Things, the Crawdaddys, the Loved Ones, Lazy Lester and the Kinks, and doing it with style.
He's been compared to the likes of Link Wray, John Waters, & Elvis Presley, but Total Trash digs deeper than usual comparisons. How bout likening Mr Megira to the cast of Something about Mary? Sexy like Dillon's mustache, charming like Diaz's quirkiness, and mind boggling like Jonathan.
Sexy Caveman rockers from 1963. The Ogres will rule your dance party and turn your teenage daughters into a the next beach party chain gang. And when the police knock on the door and your daughter is in the backseat of the squad car, you'll know it was Dirty 'ol Uncle Johnny that deranged her mind.
Have you ever met five human beings that could out drink all the bimbos of Brochella, and all the bearded ladies of Uzbekastan? Well you have now. Meet the Teutonics! These guys will share their love of beer with you as they spray you in the face and dump it on your head while playing really groovy rock and roll.
