Fifteen Pounds of Beets / Bio

Fifteen Pounds of Beets is a rock quartet that was forged in the centre of the earth. Once they escaped their prison of magma, they only had one goal: to rock. Now, Dr. Jonny Phyre, KevBot, Nikki Tantrum and S.I.M. will pour liquid sound into your cerebellum.
Dr. Jonny Phyre, PhD.--Doctor of rhythm.
His hips never stop gyrating to the rhythm of the earth, because they can't. Born in a Bolivian coal mine, he was raised on a diet of fear and rage, honey and cloves, he regrets nothing. After getting his Doctorate in Rhythm from both the School of Hard Knocks and the University of Regina, he felt there were no more challenges left...that is until he was summoned by ROCK AND ROLL to SHRED some eardrums.
KEVBOT--Your bassist from the future, vocalist and ROCK VISIONARY.
KEVBOT was assembled in a secret bunker beneath Azerbaijan during the height of the Cold War. During the course of some dark and arcane experiments involving nuclear fission, artificial intelligence and the decadence of Rock and Roll, KEVBOT soon outsmarted his scientist creators, liberated himself and brought down the Berlin wall. KEVBOT wandered the world, searching for purpose, until, after witnessing the excesses of western culture in the film Gigli, he decided to use his powers for ROCKING OUT.
S.I.M.--Sensuality and Guitars and Rock Screaming and Counting.
S.I.M. was a puppet, but he found that he had the power to heal. So, after cutting his strings, he escaped to the deep South of the North, where he knew his talents would eventually destroy him. So he destroyed them. Now, he only has the power to SHRED. He knows no human speech, he feels no human fear, he sees no human sight. He will melt your face right before he melts your heart. He is S.I.M.!
Nikki Tantrum--Guitars, Sensuality and vocalist.
Raised by a secret society of Norwegian yak herding monks, Nikki Tantrum was taught the most secret ways of ROCKING OUT and clever stage banter. The only thing he eats is the throats of other animals in order to keep his vocal chords supple and smooth as yak cream and yellow silk. Though sometimes confused with Winston Churchill and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, he is neither. He has been preparing his whole life for this...for now....HOW MANY OF YOU ARE READY TO ROCK?
