Friday 06 July 2018 – Generation Landslide!, The Genzales, The Walk Offs

 

Generation Landslide! (Houston, TX)
https://www.facebook.com/GENERATIONlandslide-146761458684303/

GENERATION:landslide! is a band whose voice comes from the heart and soul of Houston, TX. There’s a raw element here seemingly absent from a great deal of the current bands that are touring and trying to make it. When I say “raw”, I don’t mean idiotic monkeys bashing things, needles peaking and your ears going into shock. No. These people are songwriters…artists…audiophiles. They have a great passion for music and the common man. They are the champions of “garage”-rock and psychedelia; a band of seekers. The band consists of Tom Underwood on Guitar/Vocals, Kathie Muncy on bass/Vocals, Wil Hudgens on guitar/vocals, and Charles Zittle on drums/vocals. The band’s first recording effort, “Tomorrow Was Yesterday”, was engineered by Steve Bundrick at (the now closed) Z-Lab Studios in Houston, TX (Bundrick has also filled in on drums from time to time). It features the guest talents of Greg Trifaldo, Greg Varhaug, and David Watkins. Tom’s songwriting could be considered somewhere in the neighborhood of Warren Zevon, Lou Reed, and Tom Petty. There’s a strong pop sensibility with a raw punk edge. Now, currently engaged in working on material for their next recording effort, the group will be taking a break from live performances until sometime next year. GENERATION:landslide! returns to playing out starting on March 19 at Notsuoh, we will be debuting our newest member, Sellers Thomas. Sellers will be replacing longtime guitarist Wil Hudgens who has left to pursue other musical ventures

 

The Genzales (Houston, TX)
https://www.facebook.com/Thegenzales/

Taking their name (and inspiration) from Johnny Thunders’ birth surname, the Genzales formed in early 2017 with the idea of just writing some songs and playing ragged and energetic rock and roll: punk rock molded in the form of not only their namesake, but other miscreant rock and roll punk forebears as well like Loney-era Groovies, Real Kids, Nervous Eaters…the Lazy Cowgirls. Messy, noisy and never earnest, and always sullied by their roots, their songs always nod to the Kinks and the Pretty Things. Band members consist of remnants of Houston bands like the Born Liars, modfag and the Freakouts, as well as the B-Movie Rats from Los Angeles. New single for ‘Don’t Smoke in Bed’ on Raw Ramp Records coming soon.

 

The Walk Offs (San Antonio, TX)
