THE YOUNGER LOVERS

Originally from Alabama, Brontez began THE YOUNGER LOVERS aged 12, along with two of his girl cousins,T'kwa and Bean, ditching the baptist choir to practise. In the wee hours of the decade - after catching punk germs, and discovering the revolution in Riot Grrrl records and teenage zines - he left his cousins behind and moved to California, spending time in other bands (GRAVY TRAIN!!!!, PANTY RAID, THE SOCIAL LIES, THE MANHANDLERS) before releasing the debut Younger Lovers LP, "Newest Romantic" and the Vice Cooler (HAWNAY TROOF) produced EP "California Soul" on the Raw Sugar and Retard Disco labels.

The Younger Lovers share a similar brat-tastic bubblegum-queer-pop approach to punk as GRAVY TRAIN!!!! and PANSY DIVISION, but with a more garage-y and delinquent sound - like THE RAMONES making out with each other on the street corner, listening to THE RONDELLES on transistor radios...

Whilst on record, Brontez mostly plays and sings everything himself, when he performs live he picks friends from other bands to play with him wherever he is. In the past, this has included members of PARTYLINE, NEW BLOODS, HORNET LEG, HAWNAY TROOF and SPIDER AND THE WEBS. For the UK tour he will be joined by members of COREY ORBISON, THE MIDDLE ONES and ZERO CHARISMA.

Expect enough sass to set your roller-skates a-fire, and a full-sized kick on the lips for the punk-kids on the dancefloor...everytime!



THE BUMBLEBEES

THE BUMBLEBEES spit out genius, neurotic pop tunes the way most bands spit out gum, and they deliver them to you wrapped up in your own sugary tongue, so you'll never get them out of your head again! They are the sting and the sore and the kiss to make it all better; with harmonies sharper than glass, they are as dreamy as they are frantic, and as punchy as they are perfect.

An album of brat-beat impeccability is currently being recorded for the Local Kid record label.
