The Connie Dungs are a poppy snotty punk band similar in style to The Ramones and, later, Jawbreaker. Hailing from Ashland, Kentucky, the band was originally composed of Brandon Tussey (a.k.a. Brandon Dung), John Spears, and brothers Chris Griffith and Wayne Griffith. They existed as an active band from 1994-2000, going through several guitar players, taking part in over 20 releases during that time. The Dungs gained some degree of prominence in the American underground punk scene based on sporadic concerts around the middle U.S. including Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee, and West Virginia... In 1994, the Connie Dungs began performing at local shows for friends and punk fans in Eastern Kentucky. During this early period they recorded and released two cassette-tape demos (Songs for Swinging Lovers and Nice Guys Finish Last) which were sold exclusively at shows. Both "Songs for Swinging Lovers" and "Nice Guys Finish Last" were later collected on one album, Songs for Swinging Nice Guys, released in 1999 on Mutant Pop Records... Their first official release was a split 7" with fellow local punk band Tugboat. These demos and early releases resulted in a 7" single with Chicago indie label Harmless Records, Missy and Johnny. This single was selected in 1995 by Shredder Records as one of the top punk singles of the year and was included in volume three of their annual compilation, Shreds... After signing with Mutant Pop and releasing a series of singles and albums, more buzz came by way of positive coverage from every major underground punk publication including Flipside, Punk Planet, The Probe, Jersey Beat, and maximumrocknroll. Two writers at maximumrocknroll were particularly enthusiastic about the group: George Tabb and Mykel Board . Board once wrote: "They're my new favorite band. In case you haven't heard, they've got the best punk vocalist since H..R.!...I love you!" Zac Damon (of Zoinks! and, later, Squirtgun and Screeching Weasel) provided back-up vocals for the second LP, Driving on Neptune.. The third LP, Earthbound for the Holiday, was produced and featured back-up vocals from Mass Giorgini, the prominent pop punk producer who was a member of later incarnations of Screeching Weasel and a founding member of Squirtgun. Mass also had a hand in recording, mastering, and producing several Connie Dungs releases...Fast forward to 2011… The Connie Dungs are back with the original 1994 lineup of Brandon, Wayne, John, and Chris and will be playing their first show since August 2000 on July 9th at the V-club in Huntington, West Virginia. Hells Fire Sinners:Alan Dude and two others who shall remain nameless for now, started out in late 2006 with a goal of mixing good honky tonk with punk and rock.after a couple of months of constant jamming they played their first show as a bass-less three piece in a piss smelled burned out basement on the Ohio state campus.after a few more shows they recruited bass player Andy of Middleport Ohio.after a few years and a few member changes they completed their line up by adding Brian on drums.now gig after gig through the mid west and beer after beer fan by fan inch by inch they march on.they are currently working on their second album.all in all hells fire sinners are a hard working, no nonsense, no collar American band doing their best to get the music heard.
