LOW VOLTS (SD, CA) || YANKEE COCKFIGHT (NH) || CACTUS ATTACK (MA)
*****************************************************
LOW VOLTS
*****************************************************
Three time San Diego Music Award winner, LOW VOLTS is giving the music world a much needed shock to the heart. Often referring to himself as 'us' and 'we' at live shows, this one-man, dirty-blues-rock n' roller provides a wild performance like none other. With a gritty old slide-guitar, thunderous kick drum laden with tambourines, and dark, howling vocals, LOW VOLTS creates a thick and heavy sound equivalent to a five piece band. Stripped down, stand up original music. Combining a timeless mixture of blues, rock and soul, LOW VOLTS has managed to encompass the American sound in a raw and extremely unique way.

The 2011 debut record, "Twist, Shake, Grind, Break" has seen music used by Showtimes's hit series "Weeds", Stone Brewing Co., Sector 9 Skateboards and also won 'Best Blues Album' at the San Diego Music Awards.

The 2012 release of "Oh My Stars" has brought another wild and dirty ride through uncharted sonic landscapes winning 'Best Blues Album' staying true to the sound & experience of an authentic LOW VOLTS live performance.

YANKEE COCKFIGHT
*****************************************************
Yankee Cockfight are a heavy punk-blues duo from the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Consisting solely of Scrimmy on guitar/kick-drum and Mighty Junior on harmonica/vocals. These guys produce a huge, aggressive sound.

Mighty Junior got his start-playing harp in his home state of Mississippi with some of the delta/hill country blues royalty. He barks out blues lyrics like an angry mastiff on a whiskey binge. His harmonica playing is vicious, loud, feedback-drenched, and to the point. Junior plays only the toughest blues licks and somehow gets his amp to feed back on key. His control of amp feedback is Hendrix-like I've never heard another harmonica player do this. Some people would say he sounds like Little Walter, but, In reality, Junior is more like a faster Sonny Boy Williamson with tons of distortion.

Scrimmy plays his 6 string into an old tube stereo with a 4 inch speaker and the tones that scream out of this amp are a mixture of metal and blues. Scrimmy touches on both genres in his playing style, some fast solos mixed in with Son House style rhythm. All the while, he is banging his 'four on the floor' through his bass drum laying down a solid, rockin' rhythm over which Junior can work his evil magic.
