ST 37, Morning Scales The Mountain, The Cryptographers

Rudyard's British Pub

June 2, 8:00p.m. - 2:00a.m.

ST 37 Celebrates the 20th Anniversary of "Spaceage" with most of the LP to be played this evening. ST 37 (Austin, TX) https://st37.com/ ST 37, long-running specialists in bubbling-mercury riffage and German-flavored trance rock… – David Fricke (Rolling Stone) These Texas astronauts stuff their hash pipes to the brim and pay homage to Can, Amon Duul and Chrome…their psychedelicatessen of originals is stocked with brain-melting skree… – Fred Mills (Magnet) My favorite track on the album is “Concrete Island, an adaptation of J.G. Ballard…on first listening…I recalled reading this book so vividly and so perfectly, I was amazed. This recollection was unlike any feeling I have previously known or felt from music… – Adam Strider (StriderNews) From the moment the credits open, the band launches into a continuously evolving and strangely beautiful ethereal drone lasting the duration of the 1926 silent film classic. (from a review of ST 37’s soundtrack to Fritz Lang’s “Metropolis”) – Michael Bertin (Austin Chronicle) A friend of mine said I would get a “kick” out of it…I did. – Byron Coley ..paint-blistering guitar and some elegant phased bass work poised atop droning vocal splendor… – Phil McMullen (Ptolemaic Terrascope) The piledriving Hawkwind-y/Wipers stuff near the end is still my favorite. – Jello Biafra Morning Scales the Mountain (Houston,TX) https://morningscalesthemountain.com/ Morning Scales the Mountain (Texas - 2017) is an electric rock trio weaving guitar wail and omnidirectional percussion into high-density (and high-volume) improvised rock epics. Tom Carter's electric guitar work weaves strands of melody, drone, fuzz, and charged silence into intricately detailed instant compositions. Best known for his work with iconoclastic acid-folk improvisers Charalambides (which he co-founded with Christina Carter in 1991 in Houston, TX), Tom Carter has focused on solo performances and recordings since 2012. Pitchfork selected his double LP Long Time Underground as the number-one experimental album of 2015. Drummer and multi-instrumentalist John Kennedy emerged from the lysergic brew of Houston’s late-20th-century outsider music scene as a member of the mysterious electronic project Jesus Penis. Since then, he’s explored the many psychedelic byways of the Texas experimental scene, supplying percussion for free improvisers (the JDP Trio, with Paul Winstanley and David Dove) as well as zoned-out rockers (Dry Nod, Run Trip and Fall, and Rusted Shut). Kennedy’s electroacoustic project Cyclops Joint has been releasing recordings in various formats since 1991. Guitarist and bassist André Ramiro has deep roots in the noise, experimental and post-rock communities of Brazil. He is best known as co-founder of the expansive and cinematic Curitiban post-rock band ruído/mm. From 2006-2007, Ramiro operated as one-half of the experimental duo Índios Eletrônicos, a psychedelic stew of guitars and electronics pulling influences from all corners of the universe. Ramiro has performed with numerous rock bands, including Oaeoz, AlphaPsicotics and Iconoclastas. The Cryptographers (Houston, TX) http://thecryptographers.org/ In 2017, the Linus Pauling Quartet ceased to be. From the ashes of that band rises The Cryptographers (Carol, Charlie, Larry, Ramon, and Stephen). The band will be charting a new course across uncharted waters. We advise all people joining us to leave your expectations at the dock; this journey will be quite different.

9-9:30pm The Prettybads an american punk rock band Theprettybads.bandcamp.com Soundcloud.com\the-prettybads https://www.facebook.com/ThePrettybads/?fref=ts 9:45-10:15pm The Genzales Taking their name (and inspiration) from Johnny Thunders’ birth surname, the Genzales formed in early 2017 with the idea of just writing some songs and playing ragged and energetic rock and roll: punk rock molded in the form of not only their namesake, but other miscreant rock and roll punk forebears as well like Loney-era Groovies, Real Kids, Nervous Eaters…the Lazy Cowgirls. Messy, noisy and never earnest, and always sullied by their roots, their songs always nod to the Kinks and the Pretty Things. Band members consist of remnants of Houston bands like the Born Liars, modfag and the Freakouts, as well as the B-Movie Rats from Los Angeles. New single for ‘Don’t Smoke in Bed’ on Raw Ramp Records coming soon. https://www.facebook.com/Thegenzales/?fref=ts 10:30-11pm The Hormones Tim "Napalm" Stegall and his classic '90s punk rock band The Hormones are back!

Velostacks*Brewtality Inc*The Stand Alones*The Guillotines

Rudyard's British Pub

September 8, 8:00p.m. - 1:00a.m.

The Guillotines Born from the ashes of the 70's NYC/Cleveland punk scene, Bill DeGidio (A.K.A. Robert Conn) wanted to form a band that would reflect his days being in the legendary 70’s Cleveland punk band The Pagans, but didn’t want a carbon copy but rather newer version of a historic sound. Through many variations of great bands such as The Defnics, The Plague, and AK-47’s in Cleveland, Bill finally found himself in Houston, TX. “Why Houston?” One may ask - Well, Houston was good enough for Cheetah Chrome, Nikki Sikki, as well as bands like ZZ Top, Humungous, DRI, and many others who have followed, so yeah… why Houston? So, anyway… after many other bands in Houston, Robert Conn along with his wife Julie (A.K.A. Jewels) formed a punk band called Chelsea Hotel, who have seen members the likes of Maxx from Junkyard and even Lonnie of The Bullet Boys… Yeah, that Bullet Boys (place “Smooth up In ya!“) The Guillotines have evolved since then to become a high energy 3 guitar attack of rock n roll the like of MC5, The Stooges, and Kiss - and to this day carries on the sounds they helped create as well as too create a whole new sound in itself! The band now enlists Stevie Rider on drums!! Curtis W. De Gidio (Velostacks, Chrome Kickers) on 2nd lead/vocals and Glenn Gilbert (Vanity Crimes/Supergrave) on lead guitar. The Guillotines have also enlisted the help of their friend Don Cilurso (Texas Terri & The Stiff Ones, Deviletones, King of Kings) to produce their new full length album and as a result, the new album promises to be a contradiction of itself, mixing raw songs reminiscent of their roots with refined clean, but loud and snotty rock n roll!! Who are The Guillotines? You are about to find out… https://www.facebook.com/Die.Guillotines/ The Stand Alones Rock and Roll, streetpunk, call it what you will...Give us a listen-- you'll figure it out.... if you don't...DRINK MORE! https://www.facebook.com/The-Stand-Alones-265958520118220/ Brewtality Inc Established in 1999, Brewtality Incorporated plays the kind of working class, beer guzzling, punk rock that has earned the band opening slots for the likes of U.S. Bombs, The Cromags, Citizen Fish, The Queers, and M.O.D. When you see Brewtality Inc. live, expect a raw, energetic, non-stop Ramones-style set with beers held high overhead. The guitars are loud yet distinctive, and the bass lines throw up all over you as the drums pound away at you like a whiskey hangover. If you're on the wagon, Brewtality Inc. may just knock you off and run you over. https://www.facebook.com/BrewtalityInc/ The Velostacks Motorcycles. Leather. Rock n’ Roll. Vive La Velostacks!!! Although originally starting in 2013, it was 2014 that saw The Velostacks transition from a nearly dead idea to a one of Houston’s hardest working rock n’ roll bands. Following a chance meeting at a motorcycle rally, Curtis W. DeGidio (Chrome Kickers, Chelsea Hotel, The Guillotines) and Donnie Stokes (UGH, Satanic Overlords of Rock n’ Roll) quickly went to work. Houston music scene legend, J.R. Delgado (Sugarshack, Humungos, Screech of Death) was brought aboard on bass guitar, with Arthur Hayes (The Next) jumping in on drums and Richard Crishock (Mister Pink, Texas Mod Crushers, Johnny Rioux and the Seven One Three) rounding out on lead guitar. After playing a fury of shows around Houston and Austin, Dave Ng (Latchkey Kids) was brought aboard to take over drums. Playing many gigs and constantly writing, The Velostacks recorded the “I Live and Die for Rock n’ Roll”, b/w “FU and Your Cocaine & “Brain Dead Cagers” single. As the undisputed kings of motorcycle leather rock n’ roll, The Velostacks, with help of their dedicated fan base ,The Sleazestack Militia, declared their intent of raising Hell and taking names. Late 2015 saw more personnel changes as Curtis moved from rhythm guitar to guitar and lead vocals. Bass duties were picked up by Houston’s rock n’ roll legend Christian "The GFN" Best (The Down and Dirties, Hell City Kings, Whiskey River Revival) and drums passed to Nate Bandor (The Grizzly Band). With this lineup, their first LP “Black Magic & Motor Oil” was released early 2017. https://www.facebook.com/Velostacks/ Doors 8pm $8 Cover
