Hello all, this is Billy Tsounis aka Frenchie Euro Smoothie,(guitarist)for the Uncle Max's Cosmic Band thing here.
UMCB is /was Alex Mitchell(vocals)Fred Mett,(bass)Dave Goldstein(keyboards)John Bush(drums)and Billy Tsounis(guitar)
The band was put together in 1994 by Alex after his time in the band Circus of Power and is named after Alex's uncle who is supposedly located somewhere in some trailer park in Florida.
Uncle Max's Cosmic Band is the super daddy of some way cool hard rock/punk/blues music that started on a lovely little 4-track machine,to the studio,live , and now roams around in your psychedelic jungle.
Inspired by UFO's,sex,jackpots,magick,trash culture,the twisted,latex,meat,tobacco,tv, and the wide open spaces to name a few, it inspires the raw,dirty and trippy cosmikness indeed.
Hope you all enjoy.
In 2004 Alex and Billy formed a new band called FAT NANCY which released it's debut cd,Pure American Muscle,Baby, summer 2005.
You can catch up on Fat Nancy at www.myspace.com/fatfatnancy for some samples and info.
