Lately, we're bringing the scumbag back into psychobilly, making the Pacific Northwest our home base. We attack the stage with fast, aggressive upright bass playing, screaming metal guitars, compromised drumming, snarling female vocals, and a sprinkling of washboard, just to keep things interesting. We have been in our current line-up for more than a year now, and we are not slowing down, or changing.
Here's how our previous albums have been received:
Their two albums, the 2010 "Bender Bound" EP, and 2011's "Boozed and Bloody," have been well-received, landing them some prominent gigs all over the Northwest, and eventually leading to their signing with two independent labels, Texas-based Psycho-A-Go-Go Records, and Splatterhouse Wreckords in Tacoma, WA.
In 2010, they were chosen to play the Pacific Northwest Brewcup in Astoria, WA, the 4th annual Jake the Alligator Man B-day Bash in Long Beach, WA and they were also hand-picked by the founders of the Kurt Cobain Memorial Committee to open for Grammy award-winning band Soul Asylum at that year's Lounge Acts show in Kurt's, and the Car Wrecks', hometown of Aberdeen, WA.
In 2010 & 2011, they were chosen to play the Kustom Kulture Festival in Silverdale, WA with The Rocketz, Graceland Five, Big John Bates and the Voodoo Dollz, James Hunnicutt, and Three Bad Jacks.
In 2011, the Car Wrecks were selected to play the first ever Reno Rockabilly Riot, the 7th annual Seattle Psychobilly Brawl, the Seattle movie premiere of D.a. Sebasstian's Rat Rod Rockers, and they were flown to Ketchikan, Alaska to play Ketchikan's annual Halloween party. They also embarked on their first summer tour in 2011, playing shows in Reno, NV, Chico, Red Bluff and Benicia, CA as well as Rogue River and Medford, OR.
2012 has been another big year for the Car Wrecks; they will be releasing their third album in May, as well as playing the 2nd annual Reno Rockabilly Riot in June, the 8th annual Seattle Psychobilly Brawl, Farmageddon Records' annual Farm Fest Music Festival in West Yellowstone, Montana, and 107.9FM's Radioactive Rockfest in Toutle, WA.
Angie and the Car Wrecks have played with such bands as The Chop Tops, FANG, The Goddamn Gallows, Koffin Kats, Izzy and the Kesstronics, Rum Rebellion, Joe Buck Yourself, Hellbound Glory, Hard Money Saints, The Rocketz, Long Beach Rehab, Shivering Denizens, the Infamous Swanks, Sweet Water, The Defibulators, Sassparilla, and many, many more.
Their album "Boozed and Bloody" has been reviewed by the popular Psychobilly weblog Subculture Collective, and by Traditional Rod & Kulture magazine. [+]
