A Serious Dose Of Space Punk Blues..Meet ,Psychotic Reaction


These guys are good . So for all you Garage Punk kids make sure you give Psychotic Reaction a listen. Singing about their age, their time , their way, you’ll love it for sure. The only other Band that makes me feel like Morrison is about to take over the vocals would be The Black Angels, add these guys to that very short list.

Now Lets Meet The Band…

Hi our name is….
Psychotic Reaction

And our sound might be best described as….
Space Punk Blues/High Energy Rock-n-roll

We are…
Whitt Daniels- Drums
Bobby Layton-Guitar/vocals
Nolan Dacus-Guitar/Vocals

We are originally from…..
Garvin County Oklahoma

The first time we met was…..
Nolan and Whitt grew up together in Lindsay, Ok. Later in Highschool we met Bobby in Vo-tech for computer graphics.

We knew we were going to be a Band when………
Bobby and Nolan have been original members with a revolving door of other musicians before solidifying with Whitt as the Drummer

Before starting the band we were employed as…….
Whitt was in the Navy and Nolan was an alcohol abuser and ran a printing press while bobby was a Janitor

Our craziest gig ever was….
Thads house party in the middle of nowhere Oklahoma, People shooting off fireworks and guns all while being hopped up on morphine and whiskey. Great Night!

The first song we wrote was…….
Nolan and Bobby (Generation Blues (2007))
With Whitt-No Way Out (2012)

It’s about……
Generation Blues is about not really having an identifying common trait in our generation and not belonging to any certain groups.
No Way Out is being trapped doing something that you don’t want to do

What we are currently listening to….

Nolan-The Sword, Witch, The Strypes, Lecherous Gaze, Sleep, Led Zeppelin, the Limp Wizurds
Bobby- Neil Young, R.L. Burnside, OFF!, Howlin Wolf, The Yardbirds, Dead Meadow, Fugazi, At the Drive-in, Verbena
Whitt- Black Sabbath, Kadavar, Witchcraft, The Sword, John Bonham playing Moby Dick till my head explodes.

A few albums we could never part with….

Nolan- The Sword- Warp Riders, Pink Floyd-Piper at the gates of dawn, Radio Birdman-discography. Sabbath- Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
Bobby- The Stooges – Fun House, MC5 -Kick Out the Jams, Black Sabbath-Masters of Reality, Grand Funk-Red Album, Yardbirds-bbc sessions, 13th Floor elevators-easter everywhere. King Crimson- In the court of the crimson king,
Whitt- Black Sabbath-Paranoid, Metallica-And Justice For All, Led Zeppelin II, Anything that Jack White touches.

For fun we like to…..

Get Stoned and Listen to Black Sabbath in our underwear, Jump over fires naked, Drink lots of beer till we ger really really drunk and fall down on the ground, wake up in our own vomit and try to figure out where we all are and then flip off the neighbors.

The one thing we want you to remember while your listening to us……

How awesome we are. And that we are only in it for the money and drugs and girls.

Expect from us in 2014….
