Physical Suicide Deterrent System Project (PSDSP)
Physical Suicide Deterrent System Project (PSDSP)
Physical Suicide Deterrent System Project (PSDSP) is an avant-grunge band from the Bay Area. PSDSP combines heavy riffs, melodious, spacy vocals, surprising lyrics, and virtuosic drumming for a sound that picks up where Soundgarden left off, taking it further toward where Alice Coltrane was going. Lead singer and guitarist Eli Carlton-Pearson first conceived of the band after reading the comically verbose official title of the Golden Gate Bridge's suicide barrier. Well aware that music had provided him and many others with a reason to live in otherwise hopeless times, he decided to name his band after the barrier, in a move that was both tongue-in-cheek and dead serious. Joined by Brian Wilkerson on bass and Michael Pinkham on drums the band has become a cult favorite in their native Bay Area, and continues to surprise audiences everywhere with a well-rehearsed yet improvisational approach to heavy rock and roll.

Cody Dawson was a new addition to the band as of 2014, holding fast on the drums to usher in a new era of Happys.

The band then went to a new formation in 2015 still with Nick Petty, adding songwriter/drummer Dana Lindstrom and bassist Brett Brazil, all members of bands in the circuit around 2012- 2014. The last piece of the current lineup happened by adding lead guitarist Seth Benefield. On 4/20/16, The Happys released their first full length album "Trippin" Seth left to pursue, other projects, while Nick Muchow substitute drummer after Dana had a leg injury, came into play drums; Dana then became lead guitar player.
