"Since it’s impossible to know what it means when a band is referred to as “punk"—the term now being applied to pop idols like Good Charlotte—it might be better to say that the Flesh Hammers play guitar-heavy rock that is direct, loud and (usually) fast. They are a band in the tradition of ‘70s groups like the Stooges and the Dead Boys. In other words, this is not your daughter’s punk rock.”
— Tim Prentiss, Reno News and Review
The Flesh Hammers fronted by enigmatic provocateur, Blackie Crabtree, are a controversial, and musically brilliant outfit who have succeeded in creating a sound all their own. The band was formed in 2003. Based in Northern Nevada, The Flesh Hammers, innovators of the "gutter punk" or "punk n' roll" sound, play throughout the western states. The band unleashes rawk at the rate of submachine gun fire. Derek shreds scorching guitar solos. Blackie, known as "The Black Thrush" on bass and vocals drives the songs to climax, Paula Lee on rhythm guitar and vocals rocks the beat, while drummer Sonny Beech, thunderously pounds his message to the listener's demonic core. Bullseye is the band's third CD.
