SPENCER SINGS THE HITS!

Jon Spencer, the BLUES EXPLOSION man who put the BELLBOTTOMS on BABY DRIVER! The Top Cat who spread the Secret Sauce in BOSS HOG! The Rockabilly Right‐Hook from Heavyweight Outlaws HEAVY TRASH! The Swank‐Fucking Master of PUSSY GALORE! Jon Spencer is back! Often imitated, never duplicated, the original NYC underground‐rock legend returns from the wilderness with twelve red‐hot hits, each more powerful than the last! This is Garage Punk for Now People! A wizard's brew of rhythm & blues and subversive dance grooves, weaponized with sci‐fi skronk and industrial attitude, calibrated for the Revolution, a ball‐peen hammer of sound guaranteed to destroy any post‐modern hangover! Pulsing with energy, clanging with excitement, and dripping with radioactive soul and raw emotion, Jon Spencer opens up his heart like never before, exploring man's modern condition with caustic guitars and outerworld crooning, asking and answering the musical question, "Is it possible to torch the cut‐throat world of fake news and pre‐fab, plastic‐coated teen ennui with the cold hard facts of rock'n'roll?" The answer is YES! SPENCER SINGS THE HITS! This is the truth serum America has been craving, the beginning of a rock'n'roll special counsel that takes no prisoners and puts the squares on ice!
Archie and the Bunkers
Archie and the Bunkers
Archie and The Bunkers are an American rock’n’roll duo formed in Cleveland, Ohio, in 2013. The group consists of brothers Emmett (drum/vocals) and Cullen O’Connor (Organ/vocal). The pair began recording music in their basement self-producing their first 2 EPs (Comrade X. 2013, and Trade Winds, 2014.) The band's raw garage punk sound draws heavily from Cullen's melding of divergent musical styles. Influences range from jazz organ greats like Jimmy Smith, and Richard “Groove” Holmes, to punk icons Dead Boys, The Stooges, The Screamers, and more.

On stage, the siblings attack their songs with an energy that whips the audience into a frenzy. The unique growl of Cullen’s whirring, overdriven organ and the driving beat of Emmett’s 4-piece drum kit, leave concert-goers in shock at the sonic assault levied by only two.
2015 marked the release of their first full-length album on Dirty Water Records. It’s 12 songs were recorded at the storied Ghetto Recorders in Detroit. Legendary producer/engineer Jim Diamond captured that unique Archie sound that’s been dubbed ‘HI-FI Organ Punk.’ Emmett describes their sound as, “rock’n’roll that’s been peeled back to it’s raw foundation.”
The band kicked off 2016 with a tour that spanned 7 countries. They also self-released a vinyl-only, 6-song EP titled, “Mystery Lover.”

Emmett plays exclusively cheap vintage Japanese drum kits and is endorsed by splintered drumsticks.
Cullen is endorsed by various organs and keyboards found on Craigslist.
