In the wee hours of Two Thousand and Nine, Chris 'Buddist' Adkins, Mikey Waco, and Ryan 'Timebomb' Smith convened for a nostalgic punk rock jam. Three guys who'd rattled stages and studios together extensively in the years prior under the moniker, West of Waco. At this moment, however, five years after West of Waco's demise, life had taken these, *ahem*, gentlemen, in various wayward paths in AND out of the music world. But from the very moment Buddist broke a guitar string, Timebomb let a drumstick fly, and Waco forgot the lyrics... these three knew they were back. Phasers on Kill was born.

When the grunge revolution happened, we all said to ourselves 'I want a piece of that'. When it died, we also died a little inside. Rather than beat the fresh corp...See Full Bio
