2) The Wrecking Crew by Jaymes Q. Mayhem
Wrecking Crew has risen from the core of San Diego, California’s underground punk scene and has fast made their name a well known one. This five piece outfit formed in late August of 2003 has been bringing their brand of infectious punk chaos to rabid crowds, playing countless shows and have been asked to share the stage with notable acts such as The Adolescents, T.S.O.L., DI, The Angry Samoans, Narcoleptic Youth, Naked Aggression, The Skulls, Clit 45, The Virus, Cheap Sex, The Voids, Complete Control, The Havoc and many more.
The band possesses a raw intensity and energy that is not often created, but when it does occur, it hits with an impact that is not soon forgotten. Influenced by bands like T.S.O.L., the punk of days past, and everything the punk scene embodies, these five individuals concoct a sound and feeling that is exactly what punk is and should be, loud, aggressive and inspiring, screaming a message that is far from the candy coated, pop slathered tunes contrary to a lot of the punk of today’s standards.
Running deep with a musical background spanning only about as far as the short time these individuals have walked the earth, (the majority of the band being still in high school and the lead singer just starting college, making it that much more impressive, the level of their talent, passion and drive for what they do.
After hearing much buzz on the band and hearing the band’s self released album, Finger Records owner and president, Mel Schantz caught the band live at legendary Doll Hut in Anaheim, California opening up for T.S.O.L., and was subsequently blown away, the package was complete, a band that bring it live and in the studio! The band then teamed up with Adolescents drummer, Derek O’Brien (ex-Social Distortion, Agent Orange, DI) to record the upcoming record set to drop in August, with a subsequent tour to follow, opening up for the legendary T.S.OL.!
