the MENTORS: What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. The Mentors tale of perseverance is just as inspiring as their music. The all-American anthemic porno rock band has persevered through the death of their singer "El Duce", emerging a stronger unit than ever before. Coming back with their first consecutive album with a singer, vocalist/Drummer Mad Dog, The Mentors continue to survive. After their biggest single ever, "Black Snatch" and nonstop touring, the California trio are set to take over the world. The album is a statement on various levels. It's a statement that The Mentors can write anythingfrom fist-pumping arena porn rock songs such as "Bombs Over Frisco" and "Black Snatch" to the introspective haze of "Be A Pervert" and the pensive pain of "Bring on the Sluts." It's a statement that this band is airtight musically, with the combination of Mad Dog 's roar with his propulsive percussive palette, Sickie fret fireworks, and Dr Heathen Scum's thundering bass lines. It's a statement that The Mentors won't stop, Their 4 decade-long career after withstanding the tragic death of original vocalist Eldon "El Duce" Hoke" . Most importantly, it's a statement that The Mentors music will be here forever.
POTTYMOUTH mutated out of frustration in 2006 and was entirely executed by the troubled mind of Dread. In 2006, Dread produced and debuted with 16 songs of grand perversity perfectly titled, TALES OF THE TOILET SAUCE. The band performed locally in Los Angeles and built up crowds outside other towns leading to a quick following of sexual deviants, alternative lifestyle scenesters and out of control rock and roll maniacs. POTTYMOUTH was born! A heaping of The Mentors, Handfuls of SOD, A spread of Green Jello, A sprinkle of Andrew Dice Clay, A spoonful of The Tubes, A glop of DK, A touch of Black Flag,, A smidgen of GWAR, A dallop of Howard Stern, and quite possibly... a mouthful of Peter North.
D.P.I.: Drunkin' Punkin' Idiots play a highly dynamic and aggressive style of punk rock. The aftermath of a typical DPI show is much like the remnants of a barroom brawl: Punks of all ages dripping of blood and sweat as they make their way through broken glass and beer-soaked floors. DPI has managed to revive a sound reminiscent of early-80's punk. Imagine the raw power of "early" Black Flag, Adolescents and RKL rising up to give today's generation a hard kick in the ass. No one is as true to form. This quintet's presence and songwriting talents remain unmatched by their contemporaries. Having survived the latest SXSW (South by Southwest) bash and the release of their 2013 LP Smashed, DPI is ready to pump out the soundtrack for the next party.

IDOLS PLAGUE: Based out of Oakland California...Now re-located down in San Diego,CA. A creation inspired by the negligence and frustration of sitting still...By complacent, unchallenged ears and minds that provoke an excuse for us to explode frantically, spiritually,aggressively,without a second thought of tomorrow...
