Naked Aggression
Naked Aggression
Naked Aggression is an in-your-face political punk band that started in Madison, WI in late 1990 as a protest against the 1st Gulf War. The band was formed by Phil Suchomel on lead guitar and Kirsten Patches on vocals. Shortly after formation, Kirsten and Phil moved the band to Oakland, CA, then later to Los Angeles.
1991 to 1998 saw the band release three full length records, three seven inches, one live record and several compilation exclusive songs. In support of their output they extensively toured the United States, Mexico, Canada and Europe.
Penelope Spheeris approached the band in 1996 and as a result they are featured in her documentary film "The Decline of Western Civilization: Part III", for which Phil recorded his first soundtrack.
In 1998, just as they were about to embark on a national tour in support of their newest album, The Gut-Wringing Machine, the band came to an abrupt end when Phil died from complications arising from his chronic asthma. Five years past. Five years of mourning. Kirsten participated in other projects, but nothing satisfied her intense anger and frustration with world politics like Naked Aggression.
Thus, in 2003, in light of the second George Bush's Gulf War, Kirsten thought it fitting to reform the band in order to continue carrying on the message started over a decade ago under astoundingly similar geopolitical circumstances. Since the reformation Naked Aggression has toured the U.S., and Europe and released a split Lp with, Die Schwarzen Schaffe, on Compary Records. S.O.S. Records released a best of album called, Heard it All Before, and the most recent is a long awaited re-release of the, Gut-Wringing Machine, Cd with added video footage and live tracks. Long time friend, Michael Millett, at Broken Rekids, loyally maintains the Naked Aggression back catalog in its entirety.

The Lucky Boys
The Lucky Boys
The Lucky Boys are currently known to be playing some of the most entertaining rock/punk rock in Seattle and the Pacific Northwest. Originally from four different places in the NW they have formed their own take on the punk sound: Scott (Spokane), Dave (Seattle) and Bruce (Portland) have played in some pretty influential bands over the years including Motherload, Coffin Break, The Skate Drunks. With the band coming together as a unit and the first show scheduled they were still in search of a singer. Enter Kimi Cutthroat, originally from Boise, adding the missing element to the already solid line up. Two weeks later The Lucky Boys launched themselves on to Seattle with a no holds barred frenzy. While Kim is a lot younger than the guys, she attacks like a seasoned pro. Don't let her good looks fool you, she can and does bring it every single night. The Lucky Boys play a style of punk rock that has been compared with The Rezillos and described as The Avengers with a gut punch. X riding a freight train.. They have played with some of the stalwarts of both the local and national underground music scene including The Derelicts, The Business, Dayglo Abortions, The Real McKenzies and The Zero Boys. Catchy hooks and well crafted songs make you want to sing a long. A refreshing break from the gloom side of rock, In two years time The Lucky Boys have honed their craft into a melodic ride and infectious feeling of good times to come and parties to be had.
