Friday 21 September 2018 – Easy Credit Group Presents: The Smashed Idols, The Nelsons, Two Dollar Pistol

Smashed Idols (Houston, TX)
https://www.facebook.com/thesmashedidols/

The Smashed Idols hail from Houston, Texas where we rip up the scene with hooky guitar, bass, and drumz. We like to mix it up with hot space sauce and alien lyrics. The jam Bring The Invasion was influenced by Stephen Hawking’s warning that we need to colonize other planets before we get visited by our nasty neighbors.

 

The Nelsons (Houston, TX)
https://www.facebook.com/TheNelsonsPsychobilly/

The Nelsons were started in 2016 in Houston, Texas by Los Sandavol, Rene Acosta, and “Tucker”. These three pretty much round out what is left of the psychobilly musicians still playing in the Houston area. They formed from Los and Renee’s band “The Droids”, with the original drummer for international psychobilly act “The Ghost Storys”, Tucker. Their sound is a continuation of the of Neo Psychobilly sound, a heavily 80s influenced sound by the masters of psychobilly The Meteors, Batmobile, Frantic Flintstones, etc. with their own unique twist. You can expect everything great about psychobilly, from rockabilly, surf, and punk guitar, stand up bass, stand up drums, speeding westeren tunes, horror movie samples, to psychotic cover versions of popular songs all with a Simpsons inspired theme. So prepare yourself to wreck, party, and have a good laugh. HA HA
