Hometown -- Baltimore
Current members --Nick Albrecht, lead singer and rhythm guitarist; Darren Saxton, bass player; Pat Pulliam, drums
Founded in --2004
Style --rock 'n' roll
Influenced by --Elvis, Dick Dale, Motorhead, Creedence Clearwater Revival
Notable --A number of different drummers and lead guitarists play on the group's debut album, The Devil Made Me Who I Am. It gives the album a choppy feel - something other bands might not tolerate. But Saxton said he and the other two members don't mind. The CD release party is Saturday.
Quotable --"We've kind of got a disjointed sound anyway," Saxton said. "We pull from so many genres. You might hear one song that's a Southern rock song and another song that's more of a rockabilly surf song. ... I guess in some ways it's a good thing, but it's also a bad thing, because a lot of people try and pinpoint you as one genre."
