Out of Spite (oakland) / Bio

In the summer of 2009, Cole Gates, an upstanding member of the East Bay punk scene, climbed the dreadful Himalayas on his magical bicycle, in search of the Fortress of Stonertude. There he found the mildly insane Dr. Donovan Austin, where he was working at breeding extinct species of giant penguin. Suddenly, Cole Gates proclaimed his true identity as Captain Advice, and then proceeded to beat Dr. Donovan unconscious with a container of boxed wine (commonly known as a spacebag). When he awoke, they were in a two piece powerhouse band, creating tunes 200 years ahead of their time. Then one day, Dr. Donovan was kidnapped by the evil Dr. Robbie Wobbles and her sidekick Spenser Corzan, a wily caveman she had transported through time, whom had been recently studying the ancient drumming rites of the dark wizard Keith Moon. They sought to overthrow and replace the current hierarchy of the 924 Gilman Collective, a cult obsessed with the articles of Political Correction, and subdued the good doctor with drugs and alcohol. Cole Gates saw this, and infiltrated their team, cleverly tweaking the settings on his distortion pedal to achieve a frequency that would disrupt the mind control Dr. Wobbles had over them. Liberated and wise to the downright silliness of Political Correction, they set out to once again continue the mission of Captain Advice, but this time doing it Out Of Spite for the forces of banality they saw infesting the scene. Their first mission, in the frigid winter of 2010, was to find the mighty space-time warrior princess known as Rizzy, who traveled the galaxy with her faithful canine sidekick Junx on top of hot pink freight train, vaporizing oogles and yuppies alike with her Quantum Ukulele. They found her in disguise hiding out in a weirdo commune known as The Beanstalk. Soon after smashing this hive of scum and villiany with their mighty sledge hammers (as well as smashing themselves with whiskey and rum), Rizzy threw aside her disguise and revealed her true super-sayan form, hair golden like the sun, with her famed hot pink armor suit, and swore to help them rid the East Bay of boring music and hipster douchebaggery. Almost two years later, with their first EP out and a bloodied northwest campaign with the vicious transexual biker gang known as Shitty Fucker, they now seek to spread their vengeance across the entire planet.
