Biography

The Mojo Wire bashed its way through the Isla Vista/UCSB college-town scene from 1997-2001 before a variety of amicable reasons split up the members of this garage-rock combo, capping off a stretch of four self-recorded, self-released albums, twenty-three slapdash, scattershot gigs, and a whole lot of loud, messy, irreverent fun. The band began when guitarists Adam Hill and Bryn DuBois formed a blues band called The Clap in Dana Point, CA during May 1996, and recruited Keir DuBois (bass) and Kevin Nerison (drums) as rhythm section. Soon renamed in honor of Hunter Thompson’s annoying fax device, the band moved to Santa Barbara, CA and switched drummers, adding Brandon Klopp for about a year before shifting the lineup again to add Joe Zulli on guitar, relegating Bryn to drums. The group’s sound morphed along with its membership, from blues to surf to psychedelic to rootsy folk/country to garage rock, but always present was a bent, bizarro sensibility infecting anything they did. The Mojo Wire entered an extended hiatus in 2002 when the brothers DuBois went on to form Honey White.
