Biography

Crown Roast were a mid-90’s noisy hardcore band from Austin Texas. Originally going under the name Rig, the band released their 1st 7” in 1993 on the storied Unclean Records. It didn’t take long to determine there were multiple bands going under this name, so they reprinted the 7” covers that had yet to be distributed under their new name… Crown Roast. That debut record, the “Warthole” 7”, received very favorable reviews and reportedly became a favorite of UK DJ John Peel. A full length CD/LP on Unclean Records followed, titled “A Nose Has Many Jobs”. After playing many shows all though out the US, the band expanded their sound and stage presence by adding a 4th member - a friend who previously sang in longtime Austin favorites Big Horny Hustler, to handle all the vocal duties. Explosive and re-energized, the band released a few more 7” records before disbanding.

After their breakup, bass player Craig went on to play in Austin’s Negative Step, did a brief stint playing with the legendary AmRep band Hammerhead, and then later relocated to London forming his current band, TODD. Latter era vocalist August went on to front Austin heavy-hitters Society of Friends, also rejoined forces with Craig in Negative Step, and then moved to Portland OR where he recently has been spending time playing with the bands Electric Eye and Lords of Light.
