Thick Modine began in 2007, well before it had a name, as a two piece playing in a barn in rural North Carolina with Alex Norris on drums and Martin Pitts on guitar and vocals. The band was started as an avenue to quell a few song ideas--mostly originals, but a few covers as well. Starting a band and learning to play were parallel endeavors; therefore, the first several years occurred in that barn--years that would ultimately shape the foundation of the band's sound.
Shortly after the band adopted the name Thick Modine, it was determined that an extra component was needed to do the songs justice--a need that was resolved through the addition of Maverick Raber on bass.
Today, Thick Modine continues to broaden on its form of rock and roll, taking from the swampy funk and growl of Creedence Clearwater Revival, the raw truth that is the very essence of the Blues, and the energy and spontaneity that defines punk. [+]
