Biography

The band formed in 1996 and was initially known as The Wildbunch (Now known as Electric Six). Throughout the latter half of the ’90s, they played regularly at the Old Miami and the Gold Dollar in Detroit,[5] the center of a scene that produced breakout acts like the White Stripes.[6]

The band’s first formation was comprised of Dick Valentine (vocals), Rock and Roll Indian (guitar), Surge Joebot (guitar), Disco (bass, ex member of Detroit Cobras), and M (drums). Dick Valentine (real name Tyler Spencer) is and has always been the primary songwriter (both music and lyrics) of Electric Six. [7] During the band’s temporary split at the end of the 1990s, Tyler Spencer formed his own band called The Dirty Shame[8] and released one CD entitled Smog Cutter Love Story which featured, among other tracks, a first version of Fire track “Vengeance and Fashion.” The band reformed by 2001 to record and release the first release of “Danger! High Voltage” and record the track “Dealin’ in Death and Stealin’ in the Name of the Lord” with Troy Gregory for his Sybil album.[9]

    They don't negotiate, they don't deliberate, they do most of their talkin' with their .38s.
