The often amorous, and occasionally frightening NOBUNNY (one word, all caps) has been captivating audiences of dedicated fans and new believers since Easter 2001 (the day Joey Ramone died). Born in the desert outside of Tucson AZ, Nobunny started as an animal Elvis impersonator before deciding to try out his hand at songwriting. The raucous rabbit's music is a intoxicating concoction of all the rights and wrongs that make up the heart and the soul of real rock n roll. Songs that sound as though they were written at the Brill building by a punk rock mutant back from the future. Some batshit brilliant bullshit.
NOBUNNY stayed deep underground for his first 6 years doing DIY solo tours, burning limited CDRs, and building a dedicated group of fans across the USA. NOBUNNY shows were purported to include a dizzying act that often featured nudity, dancing, chaos, and costumes (most notably NOBUNNY's filthy rabbit mask).
In 2008 NOBUNNY released his first LP titled "Love Visions" on 1234GO! Records. The album was a hit among critics, punks, and nerds alike. A modern RNR classic filled with inept production, and songs as catchy as herpes. In 2009 Burger Records released the Mixtape/LP "Raw Romance". An acoustical confessional brainstorm exploration of cassette goodness . In 2010 the rascally rabbit released a "warts n all" Live Album on Jack White's Third Man Records. The year ended with Nobunny's 2nd proper LP, "FIRST BLOOD". Released on the Memphis' Goner Records, the album is NOBUNNY's off the deep end, poptastic, psych-o masterstroke.
NOBUNNY has spent most of the last 4 years touring North America, with 3 trips to Europe to boot. A licentiousness, lascivious, bon vivant who shows no signs slowing or toning it down. NOBUNNY loves you, and has made it damn near impossible not to love him back. Follow the white rabbit!

Nobunny's ability to deliver blithesome songs with a maddened and frothy smile is simply brilliant. His bouncy and rollicking style conjures images of dirty bubbles rising over a landscape of unkempt, andinsanely catchy hooks that will have the stuffiest of the arm folding camp dancing and acting like idiots within the first couple of chords." -Brett Cross, Victim Of Time
