Bricklayer

Band name:
BRICKLAYER

Date & location formed:
Bricklayer formed out of the ashes of Grimace in 2013, members live in Olympia and Seattle.

Reason for forming:
We formed because the guitar player for Grimace had to leave the band to take care of some life stuff and we all still wanted to continue the band but didn’t feel right doing it without him. Changed the name, added our friend Che to the lineup and boom! Bootdozer rides again.

What are your lyrics about?
The lyrics are all written by Malcolm.

How would you describe your sound?
The sound is a blend of US hardcore , Oi, and good street punk. The sound is Grimace.

What’s in the future for this band?
Releasing a record and touring.

Band name:
TURTLE NECK

Date & location formed:
Formed in the Clown Farm basement in Oly at the end of 2013.

Reason for forming:
I wrote all the songs for it when Adjustment To Society was broken down in Arizona for eight days and wrote them down on a Pepsi box. My best bud Taylor and I had conceptualized the band years ago. All the members skate aggressively and love punk.

TurtleNeck

What are your lyrics about?
Every single song is about skateboarding and how badass it is.

How would you describe your sound?
The songs are UK82 style with some melodic ’77 punk intros and some rock ’n’ roll. All the music Taylor and I loved when we were 13 and 14, ha.

What’s in the future for this band?
The future is certain for Turtle Neck. Skateboarding comes first, then the band. A West Coast tour is being planned for this fall. Shout outs to Seth Pickett Stick-it.

Print

Band name:
MALOKIO

Date & location formed:
September 2013 in Montreal, Quebec.

Reason for forming:
We were in the band Silent Bones. We went on tour and the singer left the band when we came back, so we asked Lisa to sing, wrote a new set, and here we are.

What are your lyrics about?
Angry anarchist love songs sung in Italian, English, Spanish, and French that talk about a love/hate relationship with city life. Allegorical narratives influenced by science fiction and horror about systemic problems in society.

Melodic punk.
