After graduating with a classical guitar degree from the North Carolina School of the Arts, and playing upright bass in popular North Carolina roots bands the bo-stevens and The Darnell Woodies, Billie Feather decided it was high time she returned to her faithful electric guitar. Finding her distortion pedal hiding in the closet, she dusted off her favorite amp by cranking the volume to eleven, and discovered what had been missing from her life for all these years.
Filled with rock and roll fury, Billie called on former students and Winston-Salem residents Josh Caldwell (bass guitar) and Dillon White (lead guitar) to fire up their amps, and remind North Carolina of it’s punk roots. Recently relocating to Chapel Hill, Billie convinced local legend John Howie Jr. (of Two Dollar Pistols, June, and Finger fame) to find all the missing pieces of his drum kit, and come along for the ride. Thus, the P-90’s were born.
Taking influence from the 1970’s punk pioneers, the P-90’s also draw from America’s 1950’s rock and roll roots and add modern subject matter to the mix – roommates stealing your man, falling in love at the comic book store, middle American hypocrisy, trying to make it in a failing economy, and apathetic hipsters who are too cool for school.
After several successful regional shows, the P-90’s were able to fund and record their first album, Limited Supply, in August of 2011 using Kickstarter.com. A powerful six-track EP produced by Rick Miller of Southern Culture on the Skids, Limited Supply embodies the P-90’s sassy and snotty sound, best listened to with the windows down and the speakers cranked.
