Welcome to the exciting and horrifying world of El Jefe vs. Demons!
El Jefe vs. Demons is a NY based Horror.Surf.Death.Rock band that was formed in early 2006, shortly after Scott had left the drum seat for the band Psycho Charger. El Jefe vs. Demons sound combines aspects of surf, psychobilly & good old rock n roll into a bloody trail of musical death!
El Jefe vs. Demons is the greatest one man studio band, you’ve never heard of….haha! The band was formed out of the frustration and lack of originality and uniqueness in the surf, rockabilly and psychobilly genres, which I love, but also despise at the same time. Songs about hot rods, alcohol, sleazy women and raising hell are great and fun, but not so much, when every band is doing exactly the same thing lyrically and musically for the most part!
Hence, what I’m trying to accomplish with El Jefe vs. Demons. One part Deadbolt, one part The Cramps, one part Demented Are Go, one part Man Or Astroman? And Los Straitjackets, one part The Misfits, and finally one part the Melvins and Motorhead, is the way I would describe the band, but of course those are lofty expectations, as these are some of the greatest bands of all time, period! I’m sure I don’t sound like these bands as much as I believe I do, But I wouldn’t be a proper musician if I wasn’t arrogant and pompous, now would I…Nonetheless, these are my influences for creating my brand of horror and mayhem.
Horror. Surf. Death. Rock. is the motto for the band, as I’m sure you’ll agree. The “Death, Blood And The Guts” CD you have in your grubby little hands, is the first full-length release for the band. I released a self-titled, 6 song demo in 2006, which captured the basic essence of my terrifying and dark vision for the band, with a very tongue-in-cheek approach, which is always the basis of my music. Not taking yourself too seriously is essential to me, if you don’t have humility, your missing something. Also, check out the latest El Jefe vs. Demons release, “Meant To Be Creepy EP”, 6 songs of the continuing bloody tales, that drag you through a musical nightmare that’s all to real…
So grab a shovel and dig in!
Your friend till the bloody end,
