NCM / Bio

NCM, based out of Brooklyn/New Paltz, NY, is an eccentric, eclectic concoction of raw old-school punk, driving rhythms, and acoustic and folk elements, created by the musical alchemist Pete Crotty.

Recently reunited with original drummer T Milt Simon, NCM has released their newest album Vampire Proof, which is tantalizing eardrums worldwide. Vampire Proof was produced by Earl Slick (David Bowie), who also plays guitar and bass on some of the tracks.

NCM recently did a small tour to the Red Gorilla Fest which coincides with SXSW March 2013, played the CBGB festival in NYC, July 2012, and regularly plays venues in New York City and upstate NY. The band has performed in hundreds of venues all around the country in three separate US tours.

Vampire Proof (2012) is NCM’s third full-length album, following Escape from Myopia (2008) and Dharma (2009). NCM’s music has been featured on TV shows such as MTV's "Real World" and “Parental Control."

NCM is an acronym for NON COMPOS MENTIS, which means insane in Latin. In the words of Crotty, “We’re all insane but some of us hide it better than others.”

NCM’s next tour will take the music from NY to Austin, TX, in March, 2013, where NCM will again play the Red Gorilla Fest, as well as many exciting gigs along the way.

NCM is currently shopping for an indie label for booking and distribution.
NCM has distributed its CDs to 350 college radio stations nationwide, and has made the CMJ charts.
NCM is now in league w/SESAC PUBLISHING.
