SPIKE BALLER AND THE PICKLED PUNKS
….Come one! Come all! Get your tickets to the Freak Show!
Pay the measly fee to see the deformed monstrosities that have been pickled in plain sealed jars. Are they human? Are they monsters? Neither, they are the Pickled Punks and they are pure Freakshow Pyschobilly!
America’s newest blasphemy of nature has gnawed and chewed it’s way through the womb of the Lone star state with a live show that teeters on the brink of insanity. The Pickled Punks deliver what they promise… raw, stomping, psycho Rock’n’Roll that will slap your Mom and call you Sue.
The demented ring master, Spike spanks the audience with insane physical stage antics, improv humor and verbal lashings. Not even bandmates or innocent trash cans are safe. This isn’t the first time around the circus for Spike. Founding member of one of America’s first psychobilly bands, the Barnyard Ballers, Spike has been infecting the world since 1991. After meeting up with Destin, the “Drum Tormenter” of local Austin high octane psycho band, Combre Zombi the two decided a new band was ready to be unleashed. They scavenged their local dark and dingy dive bar, the Jackalope, and found the bass-slapping whiskey-slewing bartender, Jasenstein. Sensing that they might need to bring in the heavy artillery, they enlisted the Gretsch slinging guitarist and Iraq vet, Mike. Together this conjoined quadrulpet, some call — the “best-looking band in psychobilly” — came up with their own unique sound… finally the true soundtrack for all the freaks and psychos around the world!
Stocked up with pounds of bbq and booze pumping through their veins, the Pickled Punks are finishing up their first full-lenth CD and planning some tours through the US. So keep and eye out, and a nose-down, for the freak show when it comes to your town because the umbilical cord has been cut and the Pickled Punks are on the loose reaking of formaldehyde and booze — doing what ever it takes to “preserve” their way of life.
