Being a savage kid lost in an era of uninspiring music the Staggers’ frontman, Wild Evel, teamed up in 2008 with part of former teenbeaters the Roadrunners and a fuzzface to form a supergroup, providing serious garage punk at it’s best! Take some of Billy Childish’s trashy guitar solos, some of the Miracle Workers’and The Stomachmouths’ catching melodies, add the ‘three-finger organ’, invisible monsters and cavemen and you know what these guys are up to! LET’S GO RIGHT NOW!!!!
For sure the Trashbones have their roots in the 1960s U.S. garage punk, when teenagers started playing their own music, delivering their own ideas and ideals through tight and catchy lyrics telling the conservative society, “here we are”!
The sound, that these proto-punks produced is the same sound of the five Austrian freaks – succinct fuzz-guitars, farfisa organ, furious drumming and wild, howling vocals that represent a 100% hi-octane Rock‘n’Roll attitude.
1. Who are the members of your band and what do they do?
Wild Evel – Vocals/ Organ
Murphy Morphine – Fuzz Guitar
Powl Howl – Backing Vocals/ Guitar
Berni Trashbone – Drumms
Diana Trashbone – Bass
Sometimes we have Guests:
Buddy Grabner – Saxophon (played for Screaming Lord Sutch)
BJ Jaybird – Harp (The Jaybirds)
2. Where are you guys from?
I’m right outta the dirty swamps of Vienna town and the rest live in the sewers of Fuzzville, Graz. So we are from schnitzel county, Austria.
3.How did you guys meet and what drove you to make music together?
When I played with the incredible Staggers we played somewhere in the backwoods of Austria together with a very young band called the Roadrunners! I was amazed by the youngness and primitive garage R&B sound of that band! After that evening we became friends. Berni, Pauli and I decided one drunken night out to make a side project band. Then Murphy Morphine also joined the band. He was a friend for years. Got to know him through the Staggers as well! he was a fan back then and we became friends. I didn’t even know that he could play guitar till I heard his monster fuzz riffs. We had had different bass players thus far. What was a side project in the beginning is now my main band. The incredible Staggers are not playing anymore.
4. Where are you now based?
We are Fuzztronauts from hyper fuzz galaxy FZ-2 and we are based on planet Earth an the moment to Corrupt the human Teenagers to be primitive garage punks!
5. Are there any other bands you’d recommend from your area? Why?
The Jaybirds – R&B/Beat from Vienna, The Attention – Beat from Vienna , Dee Cracks – Punk from Vienna, Dave and the Pussies – Surf, The Slapbacks – Rockabilly, The Shirley McLaines – All Girl Punk from Innsbruck, Bat Man & Robin – Lo-fi Trash from Innsbruck, The Surfaholics – High Octan Rock and Roll from Bregenz….
Cause we like them and/or they are friends.
6. What’s the 60’s/underground scene like where you’re from?
There is a little scene, but sadly not to good. People are coming to the shows but there are not to many parties to join on so we have to make them ourselves. I don’t know why people nowadays like so much crap…
7. How would you describe the style you play?
6ts Neanderthal Punk!
8. What are your live shows like?
Let me say it with Phil Istine’s words, “The shows they have done in the past couple of years have been talked about by many. Wild, outstanding, sometimes legendary…” or with the words of Lutz from Soundflat Mailorder, “A tough and trashy fuzz guitar sound, screaming melodies and the ‘three-finger organ’ all add up to a rough, yet stylish Garage band, whose gigs are already legendary…”
9. What are your main influences in music? Who do/would you play covers by? And who do you despise?
A. Influences reach from well known 50′s Rock & Roll crypt kickers in the likes of Screaming Lord Sutch, the Wailers and the Trashmen over underrated 6T’s Garage losers and Beat nuts such as the Lyrics, the Tasmanians, the Gentlemen, Shadows of Knight, Moving Sidewalks, the Sonics, ? Mark & the Mysterians, the Remains, Downliners Sect, Paul Revere & the Raiders or nerdy Rock’n'Roll losers like King Uszniewicz to surfing zombies like Dick Dale, the Ventures, Los Straitjackets to Knights of Fuzz from the 80′s, 90′s and now – or in other words fuzz pounding, organ grinding, bass crawling, bone crushing & spine bending freaks…
B. We cover ‘Were You Gonna Go’ from Art Guy, or ‘Black Cat’ from Shapes.
C. All those indie bands that came out in the last years, people have no style anymore! They try to make music for everybody and everything. Thats what they look and sound like and all the rest of the pop music stuff and what there is.
10. What are your main influences outside of music?
Low brow art, horror movies, pin ups, monsters, sex, drugs, life, anything that surrounds us.
11. How many official recordings have you done? How many released? Where can they be found? And who write your songs and what subjects do you deal with?
We released three 7’s. Two more are being produced right now, we just released our first album on Sound Flat and Wohnzimmer records on 17/02/2012 you can buy the album and maybe some of the singles online in mail-order stores and in good record shops and of course you can get the stuff directly at our shows!
I write the lyrics and Murphy the music and also Pauli and Berni are coming up with tunes! But the process is happening in the rehearsal room – somebody comes up with a riff and then we get it into shape.
12. What’s your favourite song in your repertoire currently? What’s your favourite song by another artist?
My faves are the breaks! haha… I don’t mind plain ‘Oh Yeah!’, ‘I Wanna Be Your Caveman’, ‘Why Can’t We Be’, ‘Rumble the Streets’.
13. How would you describe the current underground scene? Do you participate?
Yeah, we are 3 DJs in the band. We organise other shows and gigs… the scene is not big! We would prefer if other people would set up more cool happenings.
14. What has been the biggest challenge to date?
Getting up early in the morning! Finding new bass players!
15. How often do you Rehearse? Play Live? Record?
I don’t rehearse too much with the band cause I live in an other town! Maybe once a month I’m with ‘em, but we play way more often. Maybe 3-8 times a month – we record about once a year – depends how much new material we have.
16. What do you think of the music coverage in the modern media?
In the big channels in Austria they only play mainstream stuff, pop music or something… I don’t listen to radio. I don’t watch music channels, there is nothing that gives me a kick!
17. Do you rate any other current bands?
We like the Masonics, the Mentalettes, the Monsters, the Jackets, Wau y los Arrrghs, the Phantom Keys, the Fumestones, Thee Vicars, King Salami and the Cumberland 3….
18. Who and where would you most like to record with and why?
With the Lochness Monster on the planet of the apes!
19. What should we expect from you in the future? What are your plans and ambitions?
More wyldeeee Neanderthal Punk! Two upcoming 7’s and working on the 2nd album!
20. What can we expect from your Le Beat Bespoké 8 performance? What have you got in store for us?
We’ll tear that whole place down! It’s gonna be mental and insane… We’ll bring even Buddy Grabner who played saxophone for Screaming Lord Sutch as a special guest!
We are totally looking forward to a marvellous night out in london town!
*We can vouch that the answer to question 20 was 100% correct!
