ARTISTS

CREEPER

VENICE CA,

 

CREEPER STARTED IN 1995 BY MIKE "MILKBONE" JENSEN & MIKE CLARK. CREEPER RECORDED DEMOS IN MY BEDROOM CLOSET ON A TASCAM 4 TRACK.

ON THE BASS WAS INSECT DRAGSTER, ON BACKING VOCALS AND RHYTHM GUITAR WAS JIMMIE "51" ROMERO, ON THE DRUMS WAS NONE OTHER THAN BEOWULF'S DRUMMER.

MICHAEL ALVARADO. WE HAD TWO TRACKS ON "SUICIDAL FOR LIFE" (THE AUSTRALIAN VERSION), TWO TRACKS ON THE SUICIDAL TENDENCIES COMPILATION "FRIENDS & FAMILY." WE HAD TRACKS LIKE A DAY AT THE BEACH, DYSFUNKTIONAL, HATE RHYMEZ, DANCE OF DEATH, POISONED, BORN TO LOSE, INSOMNIA, THROUGH MY EYES, BAD MEMORIEZ, JUST FOR TODAY, AND OTHERS.

AROUND 1997 MIKE CLARK HAD TO LEAVE US AND GO BACK TO SUICIDAL TENDENCIES. CREEPER GOT A NEW BASS PLAYER & GUITARIST, ART FLORES ON BASS, AND DAVE NASSI ON GUITARIST. THIS VERSION OF CREEPER WAS SLAMMIN.'WE PLAYED A BUNCH OF GIGS IN HOLLYWOOD, COCONUT TEASERZ WAS OFF THE HOOK THEN. LOS ANGELES TO ORANGE COUNTY, WE WERE PLAYING GIGS LIKE CRAZY. WE OPENED FOR CYCO MIKO AT THE WHISKY. WE WROTE SONGS LIKE SMILE, DUSK TIL'DAWN, TRIPPIN. AND A FEW OTHERS. 

THE NEXT VERSION OF CREEPER WAS GOING TO BE DIFFERENT, WE DID THE UNTHINKABLE AND GOT A KEYBOARD PLAYER.  JASON BENTON WAS ON THE BASS, JOSE NICHOLAS WAS ON THE KEYS, JOSE IS AN EXCELLENT SONG WRITER & CAME UP WITH THE MUSIC FOR: ROLLING IN THE RAIN, HANDGUNS & HEROIN, THAT'S LIFE, COMIN' UP, LOST DOG & OTHERS. MICHAEL ALVARADO STILL ON DRUMS, OK, FUCK IT! YEAH WE HAD TWO HORN PLAYERS! ED WEISS ON TROMBONE, & JOHN GOLDMAN ON TRUMPET. WE GOT A DEAL FROM CONGLOMERATED WORLD WIDE RECORDS. WE GOT ENOUGH TO PRODUCE OUR OWN RECORD & THAT WE DID. WE STARTED TO DO THE DRUM TRACKS, SOME BASS TRACKS, WE (CARL) FIGURED OUT THE BOARD. I CALLED THE RECORD "LOST DOG," THE NAME DESCRIBES ME, PLUS MY HOMIE DOUGIE WAS ALWAYS THROWIN THAT OUT THERE. AFTER LOST DOG WAS RELEASED, AGAIN WE PLAYED TONS OF SHOWS, PROMOTED "LOST DOG," WE WERE OFFERED A LUMP SUM FOR THE MASTER REELS OF "LOST DOG." WE HAVE TURNED DOWN ANY TYPE OF MANAGEMENT OR LABEL. TECHNOLOGY  BROKE THROUGH THAT THRESHOLD. A FEW YEARS BACK & SHIT CHANGED!

ANYWAY, BACK TO CREEPER. THEY ARE CURRENTLY FINALIZING THE TRACKS FOR "A VENICE HIGH DROPOUT," & WILL START RECORDING WITHIN THE NEXT MONTH.

 

 

 

SICK SENSE

RIVERSIDE, CA.

  

SICK SENSE FROM RIVERSIDE CA. THEIR FIRST RECORD "EL PAYASO" WAS SLAMMING IN MY OPINION. BURN SOME YESKA IS THE TRACK!SICK SENSE'S 2ND EFFORT "OUT OF SIGHT, OUT OF MIND" WAS RELEASED ON THE VOO DOO GLOW SKULLS LABEL "EL POCHO LOCO RECORDS."OUT OF SIGHT, OUT OF MIND" HAS A SLAMMING TITLE TRACK WITH A CAMEO RAP BY YOURS TRULY. DOWN BY THE RIVERSIDE IS A TRACK I DON'T FORGET. SICK SENSE SIGNED WITH PIRANHA RECORDZ - VENICE CA. FOR THEIR 3RD RECORD "SICK SENSE VOL.3", THE SHIT JUST KEPT GETTING HARDER. AFTER "SICK SENSE VOL. 3" WAS THEIR ANSWER TO LOUICHE MAYORGA'S "WELCOME 2 VENICE" CALLED "WELCOME TO THE SICK SIDE." MONDO OCHOA IS THE BAND'S ONLY SURVIVING MEMBER, HE PLAYS GUITAR AND IS THE MAIN VOCALIST. DANIEL WASSON IS ON THE BASS GUITAR, TIMMY IS THE LEAD GUITARIST. J.B. THE DRUMMER IS ONE OF THE BADDEST DRUMMERS I HAVE SEEN PLAY LOCALLY. LOOK FOR SICK SENSE COMING TO A CITY NEAR YOU, THEY ARE ALWAYS TOURING & SUPPORTING THEIR RECORDS. HARDCORE PUNK ROCK AT IT'S BEST!

THE BONEYARD CROWD

GANGSTA RAP FROM LONG BEACH TO VENICE.

 

IT WAS THE LATE 80'S. THE SCENE WAS COMING TO AN END & FROM HANGING OUT AND PLAYING AT FENDER'S BALLROOM IN LONG BEACH, WE BECAME FRIENDS WITH A GREAT BUNCH OF GUYS,

THEY WERE SAMOAN AND THEY WEREN'T PEOPLE YOU'D EVER FUCK WITH. SOS - SON'S OF SAMOA IN ADDITION THEY HAD A SUICIDAL CLIQUE. THEY ALWAYS HAD OUR BACKS, WORD HAD IT THE DOUGIE NUTTY COULD RAP & WRITE RHYMES. HIM & HIS PARTNER SLUGGO LOC, WHO WAS A LOT YOUNGER, BUT HE COULD FLOW & HAD A DOPE ASS VOICE. THE FIRST TRACK WE PUT TOGETHER WAS CALLED "HAMO UPSET," I HAD A DOPE BEAT THAT I HAD BEEN WORKING ON. LONG 808'S WITH A HEAVY GUITAR SAMPLE. DOUGIE & SLUGGO DID A BACK & FORTH FLOW THAT WAS DOPE AS FUCK..

SADLY, A SHORT WHILE LATER SLUGGO WAS KILLED.
