If you’re going to get your panties in a bunch, make it A Bunch of Jerks.
This fab foursome from Boston will rock your socks and make your pants dance as they meld punk, glam, garage, and nu-wave into one ear-worm after another. Veterans of such diverse Boston acts as the Swinedells, the Sugar Twins, the Skeletones, and Johnny Blazes and the Pretty Boys, A Bunch of Jerks are:
Alli: Nu-wave and soul chanteuse and top secret TP tester.
Bat: Jack of all trades, master of none, especially the bass. Encouraged not to quit his day job.
Ethan: A cross between Romeo and the Hunchback of Notre Dame,
he’s got something for everyone on the drums.
Mike: Smells of mothballs. So does his guitar.
One record label executive described them thusly, “If the Plasmatics walked into a bar and walked out with The Dickies, Captain Sensible,
a few Misfits, George "the Animal" Steele, and The Rezillos, you would totally get where they're coming from.”
Thanks. Lou, the check is in the mail!

Rum Bar Records is turning into one of the absolute best labels for real rock and roll these days, if you haven't gotten hip to that trip. It's the boss sound from the Boss-town." - Bill Kelly, Bill Kelly's Teenage Wasteland WFMU
