The Goddamn Gallows
The Goddamn Gallows formed in 2004 by founding members and Lansing/Detroit natives Mikey Classic on guitar and vocals, Fishgutzzz on upright bass, and Amanda Kill on drums -replaced by current drummer Uriah Baker (aka; "Baby Genius") in 2006. The trio started out migrating around the West for a time, holing up in Hollywood squats and squalid apartments, before releasing several albums: The Gallows EP (2004), Life of Sin (2005), and Gutterbillyblues (2007), and finally hitting the road nearly full-time to establish their presence in the psychobilly-country scene while honing their self-described "twanged-out punk rock gutterbilly".
In 2009 the addition of Avery, a fire-breathing, accordion and washboard player, as well as Jayke Orvis (formerly of the .357 String Band) on mandolin and banjo, prompted The Goddamn Gallows to explore many new directions with their songwriting and in their live performances. As evidenced on their most recent 2009 album, Ghost of The Rails, and as witnessed by their spectacular and tireless live shows, The Goddamn Gallows began to forge a path founded on their very own brand of contagious primeval abandon: an unpretentious and from-the-gut carnivalesque smorgasbord of parts old time revival, circus sideshow, and good old-fashioned rock and roll. The result falls dead center into a head on collision between something like a Western honky-tonk impromptu parking lot rodeo, and Suburbia (the 1983 Penelope Spheeris cult classic film)


Though still officially Michigan-based, they have toured relentlessly since 2007, practically living out of their van and regularly performing as many as 200 dates a year. They continue to rapidly grow a devoted following built on their visceral and volatile blend of multiple American music styles, and frantic live energy -but still with just enough hardcore and punk influence to make your parents hate it.
Birdcloud
Banned from YouTube, booed at America's Got Talent, and lauded for
their irreverence by a global cult following, Birdcloud's music has
been referred to as the ravenous id of today’s commercial country
sound. Nashville natives Jasmin Kaset and Makenzie Green have spent
the last 5 years touring dive bars and lavish theaters across America
and Europe and are now celebrating the release of "Singles Only," a
collection of their greatest hits on double cum-colored vinyl.

"Much of what Birdcloud does is reactionary to what country music has
become — those dirt roads and the trucks that drive 'em — but also to
their experience growing up in the South: the obsessive religious
indoctrination, the caged racism... Those types of songs —
true-to-life, with a healthy dose of humor — are actually a
longstanding country tradition." - ROLLING STONE "Raunchy Country:
Inside the Genre's History of Comedy and Irreverence." Apr. 2016

“Jasmin Kaset and Makenzie Green of the Nashville duo Birdcloud are
completely fucked up. That said, we hope that they show up to every
fucking party we ever throw for as long as we live. They’re bound to
say and do things that are inconceivable and all kinds of wrong. They
will get loud and stand-offish. They would drive a car into the pool,
if we had one, they would get naked and they wouldn’t likely do
something that they’d always be remembered for. Odds are the nudity
and the car in the pool wouldn’t even rank in the top five most
memorable moments of the night, when it comes to what the two members
of Birdcloud are capable of.” -DAYTROTTER

"The mystery that animates Birdcloud’s best music is a dialectic of
identity, a cruel compassion... What it does do is give the loneliness
of an anonymous woman a couple of absurd moments to strut and fret in
your mind before disappearing once again into oblivion. Historically,
this is what country music has always done best." -VICE Noisey
