A “supergroup” of sorts, each member of this unique band has paid their dues and worked alongside some of the best in the business. Zippy (guitar/lead vocals) is a former member, and fan favorite, of the infamous Long Beach, CA band Bargain Music and has played and recorded with such names as Bud Gaugh (Sublime, Del Mar), C-Money (Slightly Stoopid, John Brown’s Body), Pepper, Dr. Echo, Yamerone Bros. and the Skatanic Rednecks. He also continues to jam with Trulio Disgracias, an exclusive side project spearheaded by Fishbone’s own Norwood Fisher. Devin Hurley (drums/vocals/keys) recorded and toured with Sacramento’s own Frank Jordan for over a decade. Marc Kallweit (bass/vocals) is the creator of Kombi; a revolving improv band that included Tyler Pope (!!!, LCD Soundsystem), Papa Skully & Jason Boggs (Filibuster). Marc has also been held responsible for the birth of SexRat. Currently, all three members jam together with Jason Boggs of Filibuster in a band called SyNcro
In the past year, SexRat has been a special guest of The Suicide Girls radio show on Los Angeles’ own Indie 103.1, secured a semi-finalist position in Disc Makers’ IMWS contest and has played in front of thousands of fans. “This is rock the way it was meant to be enjoyed. Great songwriting and interesting unexpected arrangements” says www.jimdunlop.com in reference to SexRat’s “Band of the Week” status.
SexRat’s self-titled debut album was completed in late 2007 and released by their very own label, Half of Nothing Records. This raw gem was produced by Matt McCord (Cake, Team Sleep).
Zach “Zippy” Goodin, Devin Hurley and Marc Kallweit have come together to form a nasty, gnarled, in-your-face indie rock mutt, better known as SexRat. Hailing from the shining California capital of Sacramento, this band brings a taste of jammy rock, psychobilly and punk that guarantees to satisfy. Compared to the sounds of The Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Meat Puppets and The Minutemen, SexRat emits a promising glow of becoming a permanent fixture in the music industry..
