Starting off in 2008 as The Hungry Mongrels cover band, these guys knew that something good had happened. Playing gigs non stop in and around Aberdeen was how they molded their playing style and welded themselves together as a band. They went through a few lineup changes but have stuck to the power trio combination of Ross Yule beating the shit outta the drums, Kev McLean slappin' da bass and Jon 'Bon' Davie screeching on vocals and howlin' on the guitar. The guys are always writing and working on new ideas to keep themselves fresh and on top of the game and the eclectic mix of influences in the band such as Thin Lizzy, The Wildhearts, Elvis Presley, Backyard Babies, The Clash and so on involves ideas from all angles creeping into their songs.
In June 2010 they made it into the shortlist of bands rated 'particularly awesome' by Kerrang radio in a competition to support Bon Jovi at the 02 arena in London but were unfortunately beaten to the punch. Their debut album 'Go For Broke' was released worldwide in August 2012. At the start of 2013 they were crowned 'Best Rock Band' at the Fudge awards in Aberdeen and made it to the final of Cafe Drummond's battle of the bands to win £2000.
So far they've supported the likes of Reckless Love, Enuff Z'Nuff, JettBlack, Furyon, Jim Jones Revue, Lost Angels, Heaven's Basement, Gun, Firebrand Superock, Die So Fluid, T.V. Smith of The Adverts, Stiff Little Fingers and Attica Rage. Always playing, practicing and polluting, look out for GutterGodz somewhere near you soon!
