Biography

(1982 – 1987)

Ed Gein’s Car was a hardcore punk band from 1982 - 1987. Named in tribute to the notorious serial killer, Ed Gein’s Car were “the spirited wise asses of New York City’s mid-1980s hardcore punk scene”. The group’s was formed in 1982, when guitarist Tim Carroll and bassist Eric Hedin formed the Deadhead Assassins while attending college in New Paltz, New York; within weeks they were banned from every bar in the area, prompting a move to New York City. There they recruited a series of drummers as well as vocalist Scott Weis, a former bike messenger whose shaved head and wardrobe of boxing trunks, T-shirt and sandals made him the group’s sarcastic focal point.

In 1984 Ed Gein’s Car issued their debut single, “Brain Dead,” returning the following year with the LP Making Dick Dance. They quickly became a popular attraction on the downtown club scene, and were firm favorites at CBGB, where they recorded the 1987 live effort You Light Up My Liver. However, the group took success with the same lack of seriousness as they approached every other facet of their career, and disbanded at the peak of their popularity in 1987; Weis later joined Iron Prostate before turning to painting.
