From the fires of hell they rise with powerful guitar riffs, pounding bass lines, and intense drummming to make a permanent scar on the Chicago music seen. With influences such as The Koffin Kats, Mad Sin, Eddie Cochran, and Johnny Cash they're not here to tell you how to dress, who to be, or what to believe in. They sing of your nightmares and quiet possibly some of your dreams. Lifes to short to worry about money, politics, and religion so fuck all of that and lets have a good time!!
Ghost Scorpion! stay firmly unconvoluted while renewing the retro-a-go-go vibes of the Ventures and Dick Dale, with a touch of Reverend Horton Heat tossed in as a reference point for those who weren’t teens in the early ’60s. “After [the Cramps’] Lux Interior passed over to our side, we hung out for a bit, and he explained the basics of psychobilly to us,” DeLambre claims. “It goes hand in hand with surf rock. Throwback, straightforward rock and roll. No bullshit, but exclusively bullshit at the same time.”
The Alder Kings are a three piece, high octane, high gain, instrumental psycho surfabilly band from Chicago. Since forming in 2011 The Alder Kings have gained exposure on the national and international level. Rooted in the classics but definitely not your Daddy's surf.
Having laid a foundation on a sound that blends the stories and songwriting of country and folk with the grit and punch of blues & good old fashioned rock-n-roll, The Buckshot Hounds have carved themselves a place to stand where few have stood before them. Basically, five hicks playing some kick-ass rock & roll. Hope you like it.
