The Lost Riots, The Defcon 5 , The Hulls
The Defcon Five: There are few bands who can call themselves The Greatest Band in the History of Rock N Roll, The Defcon Five is one of them. From out of the musical wasteland that was 2002 sprang forth four virile rock gods who beat their instruments senseless for the crowd’s amusement. Deafening cheers followed them wherever they went! After a good run they were forced to take a hiatus because the rock n roll lifestyle was tearing them apart at a sub-atomic level, but in 2011 they returned to continue their reign! Who are these wonderful creatures, you ask…well they are Live Mike on pulsating throat noises and hip gyrations that make the ladies swoon, Brett Rules on the six stringed implement of Rock N Roll Death, Moe Porne on aggressive bucket banging and sincerely genuine ironic t-shirts, and Sean Lewis on the five-stringed-though-he-only-uses-four low end brown note contraption and figuring out ways to use the term “YEAH!” in songs (it’s an easy job, but somebody has to do it)! The Defcon Five was gone, but now they’re back and they brought a clipboard and plenty of paper and are going to take names! LISTENThe Lost Riots: Frontman Jeffrey Thunders compiled a bunch of songs over the course of the last ten years with various bands and home…recordings. In early 2012 he formed the great Lost Riots with Sean Beirne from The Battlecats and Noel Tomas from The Field Recordings, and famous CT Punk Rocker Matt Injection on bass and started a full blown garage punk explosion in southern New England. LISTENThe Hulls are four guys who became friends over the last ten years drinking and playing in various bands in and around New Haven, CT. 2012 looks to be an exciting year with the boys continuing to write their unique style of punk rock that “pays homage to the classics but still puts its own spin on the sound” and has been described as “late 70s British style punk” a la The Clash and The Buzzcocks and “Boston Oi punk” in the vein of Darkbuster, The Explosion, and early Dropkick Murphys. More recording and shows are on the horizon as The Hulls continue to rock throughout New England, the Northeast, and beyond! LISTEN
