The Flamin' Skulls

The Brainy, Beatnik Psyche-a-Billy Banter of the Bass player's night sweat rantings hammers through virtual smoke rings left by the ghostly denizens of a Day & Nite Café. It's one million o'clock, and a swamped-out buzz-saw guitar razzes into the night-vision street…meanwhile, the infinite day-mares whacking upside the cracked walls of the drummer's tortured mind have finally set his skull on fire…

Zombie Janitor was written one hot & morbid evening by Murgatroid while he was moonlighting (literally) as a janitor…

As for the early days—during the the 80's—gigs with the likes of NoMeansNo, DOA, and the Dayglos were not uncommon. Today, with Crybaby Cliff on bass and vocals, Johnny Quest on drums and Murgatroid playing guitar, these veterans of the lower Vancouver Island punk scene continue to follow the D-I-Y tradition.

hey can often be seen opening shows for the likes of the Cavaleros, Hank Angel and his Island Devils, Hearse, and the Jukebox Jezebels. Recent venues include the Victoria Event Center, the Cambie, the Duncan Exhibition grounds (Rockabilly's Rumble Weekend) and the Duncan Garage Showroom.
