Album Notes
We're just four guys playin' what we love most: Punk Rock/Rock N' Roll. We started in late 2003 as a surf instrumental 3 piece and by late 2004, with the addition of another guitar player and a vocalist, started developing our sound. We started playing shows on New Years Eve 2005. We had an upright bass at the time and were branded as a psychobilly band, though we thought more of ourselves as a rock n' roll band with a twist of "outlaw" country. We signed to Zero Youth Records in mid 2006 and put our debut out titled "Ship of Beggars".

We had been playing the songs on that record for so long, that it was a relief to finally put them down. A lot of bad times, good times, love lost and drinking went into that record and we're proud of it. In October of 2006 we decided to switch to electric bass. Long story short, Matt was sick of lugging the huge King Double Bass around and we wanted to broaden what we could do musically.

From 2005 to 2006 (our first year of playing live) we became veterans of over 80 shows and we're still going strong. We plan to be back in your faces with a new album sometime in late 2007 to early 2008 and a tour to follow!

So if you're a fan of no bullshit, straight forward punk rock and roll, you can buy our album on or download the songs you want at We have t-shirts available at our shows and they will be available online by summer 2007. So have a drink for us and we'll see you on the road!

Jimmy is right
I haven't been able to stop listening to this album either. It's put together just right, starting out hard and heavy with that delicious twist of darkness underneath, and taking you down into further, angrier depths, before lifting you back out again into aggression. Incredible.

Personally, I say it's a shame that the band decided to drop the upright bass after this album, but I am looking forward to what they do next.
