The Vibrators
The Vibrators were founded by Ian 'Knox' Carnochan, bassist Pat Collier, guitarist John Ellis, and drummer John 'Eddie' Edwards. They first came to public notice at the 100 Club when they backed Chris Spedding in 1976. On Spedding's recommendation, Mickie Most signed them to his label RAK Records. Most produced their first single, "We Vibrate". The band also backed Spedding on his single, "Pogo Dancing".

The Vibrators recorded sessions for John Peel at BBC Radio 1 in October 1976, June 1977, and February 1978.[2] They were one of the pioneering punk bands that played at London's Roxy Club. They headlined in January 1977, supported by The Drones, and in February they played twice at the venue.[3] In March 1977 the band supported Iggy Pop (with David Bowie on keys) on his British tour. Later that year they backed ex-Mott the Hoople frontman Ian Hunter.

The band signed to Epic Records in early 1977. Their debut album, Pure Mania was co-produced with Robin Mayhew, the sound engineer for David Bowie's Ziggy Stardust live shows, and reached the Top 50 of the UK Albums Chart. The album is well regarded by some music critics and, 17 years after its release The Guinness Encyclopedia of Popular Music named Pure Mania one of the 50 best punk albums of all time.

Their follow-up album, V2, narrowly missed the UK Top 30. The only single to be taken from that album, "Automatic Lover", was the only Vibrators’ single to reach the UK Top 40 where it reached No. 35.[7] It earned the band a TV appearance on the prime-time TV show Top of the Pops. The Vibrators’ final single on Epic, "Judy Says (Knock You In The Head)", was released in June 1978. It reached No. 70 in the UK singles chart.[7] Years later it was included in Mojo magazine’s list of the best punk rock singles of all time.

Rock N Roll out of Oakland CA. We've got past members of Dolorata, Fabulous Disaster, Neutralboy and The Lean. But we sure as hell don't sound like any of those bands!!

“YEAR OF THE FIST - Death Breath Light & Pain : I must admit I should know more about this band than I do know because Squeaky Hell, a really cool lass who I've lots of respect, plays for this band. What I will tell you is they play raw Punk Rock N Roll to a very high standard. In fact they're one of the best bands to come out of California in a while without a doubt. This 10-track debut album is certainly well worth investing in if raw Punk Rock N Roll is your thing. Every track is worthy of a listen but the ones that stuck out included 'Death Of Me', 'Never Go Home', 'Killer On The Road' and 'I Want Your Love'. Yeah go on and give this band some support!"

Founded by Joe Fink (The American Terrorists) on vocals and Greg Elliott (Fang) on lead guitar, FUKM’s main objective was to establish an unprecedented and distinct sound, combining punk with rock n’ roll.John Lazarus (The Stomacher) their loyal permanent drummer, unfortunately left us in Feb. 2013 He was an excellent Drummer, friend, and brother . Since his passing Chris Mabry has stepped up and became a part of the FUKM family as our new drummer. FUKM recruited El Benway (Bad Angle) and Jerry Mabry ( Cycloptopus) on bass and rhythm guitar respectively, thus completing the FUKM family.Every member has brought their own musical influences to the table, resulting in an exceptional sound. Together they are an unstoppable force to be reckoned with.

Since early on, FUKM has played many shows, large and small. They have had the pleasure of sharing the stage with bands like MDC, Verbal Abuse, Dr. Know, The Mentors, Agent Orange, D.I. , Attitude Adjustment, CH3, Oppressed Logic, Retching Red, Arnocorps, Hammerlock, The Murder Junkies, ADT, Proudflesh, The Chop Tops, Fang, The Jim Jones Review, Green Jelly, and The Lower Class Brats.

The album, titled No Escape, was recorded by the talented Jeff Davis at Lennon Studios in San Francisco.
