Kicking Up A Garagepunk Duststorm…..Meet, Pow Wows

pow wows

It’s been awhile since I’ve had the time to discover some new music , glad to say I’m starting to find a little more free time to go hunting for some killer bands, so let’s start off this by saying these guys are some serious rock n rollers , their latest release is out on Get Hip Recordings out of Pittsburgh and for all you garage rockers that’s The Cynics Label. For me anytime Get Hip signs a band they get my attention. Very cool jamming and vocals going on here , great garagepunk vibes , reminds me of The Doors mashing up with The Fleshtones, enough from me, Meet the Band, listen to the cool ass tunes and buy their records and be sure to see them live if your lucky enough to get the opportunity…..

Hi our name is…. Pow Wows

And our sound might be best described as…. Fuzzy, verby, thunderous, dark but sometimes funny… Or garage punk rocknroll works too.

We are….. Jon, Chris and Ryan

We are originally from….. Small towns of Ontario, Canada

The first time we met was….. In the back of a car

We knew we were going to be a Band when……… When we first plugged in together and made a racket we thought hey, this is a good way to avoid working a “real job” so let’s do this. Still doing it too!

Before starting the band we were employed as……. Record store clerks, music shop employees, musicians in other bands, and various other activities moral and otherwise…

Our craziest gig ever was…. Hmmm there have been a few haha, could be the house party in Austin, Texas that the police shut down in the middle of our set… or a show we played at The Cake Shop in Manhattan where we had a run in with NYC cops outside the venue… always a good time at a Pow Wows show.

The first song we wrote was….. With this line-up our first tune together was Killing Me, our first 7″. It existed in a real rudimentary form until Chris joined and then the song was truly born.

It’s about…… Drug trips, the edge of time, nuclear disaster, and there is a dark side to the song as well.

What we are currently listening to…. Nox Boys debut LP, the new Natural Child LP, Steve Adamyk Band – Monterrey 7″, Jimmy Ohio and the Ultimate Lovers live at Volume on youtube.

A few albums we could never part with….. Flamin’ Groovies – Shake Some Action LP, any LP by Reigning Sound, PIL – Metal Box LP, MC5 – High Time LP, Gun Club – Fire of Love LP, Wilson Pickett – Midnight Mover LP

For fun we like to….. Listen to records, play guitars, drink beers, and hang out in record shops while doing these things.

The one thing we want you to remember while your listening to us…… Life is precious, spend it with us

Expect from us in 2014…. We are dropping our second full length LP and we are very excited to do so. There were countless litres of blood and sweat that went into making this record, so much in fact that you might need to clean your hi-fi after each play. We will also be touring this LP all over the place so keep your eyes wide for us because here we come…
