COMPULSIVE GAMBLERS Gambling Days Are Over 1995

 
 

Artist Biography by


Bluff City
Folding together equal portions of greasy '50s pop, Memphis-style rhythm & blues, and a punk rocker's sense of casual experimentation and musical cross breeding, the Compulsive Gamblers were at the forefront of the Memphis roots punk scene, alongside such bands as the Gibson Bros. and '68 Comeback, creating a sound that was at once sinister, comical, and full of potent groove. The Compulsive Gamblers were formed in Memphis, TN, in 1990 by Greg Cartwright and Jack Yarber, two friends who had played in a number of rough and ready punk bands in the deep south. Originally calling themselves the Painkillers, by 1991 guitar maulers Cartwright and Yarber were joined by Philip "Flipper" Tubb on keyboards, drummer Rod "Bushrod" Thomas, and fiddler Greg Easterly, and the new handle the Compulsive Gamblers was adopted. Hitting the Memphis club circuit, the band recorded a four-song EP, Joker, in someone's kitchen in late 1991; released a year later, the record helped to win them a local following, and two more discs, Church Goin' and Goodtime, followed in 1994. However, while the singles did reasonably well and the band began developing a powerful reputation on the road as a first-class live act, after Thomas and Easterly relocated to New Orleans, it became difficult for the band to hold together, and in 1995 the band broke up, with their recordings compiled on a CD released by Sympathy for the Record Industry, Gamblin' Days Are Over. Cartwright and Yarber almost immediately re-emerged with a new group, the Oblivians (in which they renamed themselves Greg Oblivian and Jack Oblivian), but after the Oblivians folded in 1997, Greg and Jack opted to give the Compulsive Gamblers another try, this time as a three-piece with Thomas back behind the drums. The new Compulsive Gamblers trio released an album, Bluff City, in 1999, and added bassist Jeff Meier for a European tour later that year. Brendan Lee Spengler signed on as keyboardist in time to record the Crystal Gazing Luck Amazing album, and a live set followed in 2003. The Compulsive Gamblers also had the honor of backing up R&B legend Andre Williams on several cuts on his album The Black Godfather

NAUSEA Extinction 1990

Artist Biography by


Extinction
Long before the endless stream of grindcore bands emerged in the '90s, N.Y.C.'s Nausea was delivering a relentless, ear-splitting, and politically charged fury that none of them ever equaled. Formed in the squats of the Lower East Side in 1987 by bassist John John Jesse, they would go on to influence countless numbers of anarcho-crust bands worldwide with their music and lyrics alike. Victor Venom, originally the bassist in Reagan Youth, was brought in on guitar while a nondescript English punk named Neil took on vocals. Amy Miret, the wife of Agnostic Front vocalist Roger Miret, was subsequently recruited as a second vocalist and after several different drummers, they finalized the lineup with Roy Mayorga. Their songs dealt with issues like vivisection, class struggle, the displacement and gentrification that was prevalent throughout New York's Lower East Side, and often played benefit concerts for these causes. Neil left the band in 1989 to form Jesus Crust and the Tribal War Records label, at which point Al Long from Minneapolis' Misery came in to take up the vacancy. Extinction would come out a year later, their only full-length release, which was well-received by anarchist punks worldwide despite the fact that it sounded more like Slayer than Crass. After traveling abroad and releasing various songs on a number of compilations, they recorded the Cybergod EP, at which time Miret left the band. They recorded one EP after her departure before breaking up altogether in 1992.

Artist Biography by

The rock band Barstool Prophets formed in the late '80s, consisting of songwriter and bassist Glenn Forrester, guitarists Graham Greer and Al Morier, and drummer Bobby Tamas. The group released a couple of singles and music videos together, and three full-length albums, then seemed to fade away before the new millennium rolled around.

Deflowered
Good friends, Tamas and Forrester, began performing together in their early teens. Later, while still in high school, Greer joined up with them. The threesome landed local gigs as often as possible, using the name Wallflowers. By the time the next decade started, the band had a new member, guitarist Al Morier, a fuller sound, and lots of experience behind them. As word of mouth spread about the indie rock group, and fans increased, the members ran into a small problem -- another band with the same name. In 1993 the Wallflowers became the Barstool Prophets, a name the guys pulled from the lyrics of one of their own songs. A year after the name change, Barstool Prophets released its first album, Deflowered. For an independent recording, the debut sold reasonably well. By 1995 the band signed with the Mercury Records label. A sophomore album was soon born, Crank, and a couple of singles appeared around the same time. It took two years for a third offering to arrive, Last of the Big Game Hunters. It was also the last of Barstool Prophets. Some of the tracks indie lovers can sample from the band's recordings include "Mankind Man," "The Ledge," "Beat My Brain," "Wasted," and "Paranoia."
