If you know anything about Las Vegas punk then you know about the legendary Peccadilloes. Maybe you’ve seen someone wearing their shirt or perhaps you’ve heard them on the Double Down Saloon juke box. If you’re one of the lucky ones, you caught them live. Yeah, if you know anything about real punk, you know them. And you know what “fuck you” is supposed to sound like.
The most underrated punk band in the United States? That’s probably true. And now, from the ashes of the Peccadilloes comes a new band, with a new direction, new music and the same bad attitude.
Meet The Gashers, a 3-piece band from Nevada with deep roots in Vegas punk history, solid, dynamic chops, and some serious anger issues. Jason, Sandy and James helped form the iconic Peccadilloes in 2003, and, after releasing four full length CDs, playing countless sold-out shows and building a huge, loyal following they wanted to try something new. In 2011, the three formed The Gashers and in the process gave a fresh new voice to everything punk is supposed to be.
They are a visceral, angry, honest, ball of knives. They are the spit in the eye of conventional music and a powerful beer-breath of fresh air in a stale world of processed, auto-tuned, pre-packaged bullshit. They defy category and redefine DIY, all while holding true to their old school roots. They are REAL.
The Gashers’ first full length album, “Law Is Not Order”, will be released On August 14th, 2012, by SquidHat Records. Be sure to check it out and make sure to catch them on tour in 2012. If you don’t remember what “fuck you” is supposed to sound like, they’ll remind you.
