John Karnaghon,Kelly Auman and Rikki Lawless make up the three man thrash band known as "Nuclear Salt." John and Kelly were high school friends who started a metal band in 1992 but only after a year of fighting,partying and an unforseeable death the band went in seperate directions physically,emotionally and creatively.
in 2011 Kelly had joined the band "Los Other Phux" as a drummer. With the absence of a bass player Kelly makes the suggestion of John to fill the void. With a gig in only three days the decision was finallized that John would join if he could learn and write the bass line to 9 songs in three days. John succeeded.
After several months of playing together "Los Other Phux" broke up but Kelly and John stayed together with Kelly moving over to guitar/bass and John vocals guitar/bass then introduced Rikki as a drummer who became an instant member we now play together as "Nuclear Salt."
