The Peacock Flounders

New Haven, Connecticut based band The Peacock Flounders was formed by long time musical collaborators Ron Sutfin and Kerry Miller in 2003. Together with guitarist Peter Krol and Bassist Sal Paradise the band is an outlet for Ron and Kerry’s original songs. They bring their experience from previous New Haven bands Valley of Kings, Miracle Legion, Cameraface, Mad Haleen, The Swaggerts and F’n Colleen to meld a powerful rock sound with a pop sensibility. The Peacock Flounders’ first Connecticut shows have brought rave reviews from audiences, with comparisons to The Hoodoo Gurus and Big Star. Their influences include The Replacements, Psychedelic Furs, Alex Chilton, Foo Fighters, Sex Pistols, Gun Club, Iggy Pop, The Damned, and Guided by Voices. Appearances at New Haven’s International Festival of Arts and Ideas, the world famous New Haven nightclub Toad’s Place, and The Bitter End in NYC, along with regular appearances at New Haven’s Café Nine, have audiences coming back for more. Their CD/Album “Hello Beautiful” was released on June 13th 2008 with some great reviews from the press. New Haven Register Entertainment Editor Pat Ferrucci said, “the 10 tune effort that is ‘Hello Beautiful’, is a stellar record from the New Haven quartet… dense guitar driven, rootsy…very good songwriting from scene veterans Miller and Sutfin …Simply put. ‘Hello Beautiful’ is exactly what you’d expect from the quartet if you’ve ever seen them live, and that’s a big compliment”. New Haven Advocate, Mike Sembos: “Ten tracks of solid power…There’s plenty of substance and creativity
