Rod Hamdallah
HAILING FROM ATLANTA, GA, GARAGE ROCKER ROD HAMDALLAH HAS BEEN TEARING UP THE SOUTHEAST MUSIC SCENE SINCE BEFORE HE WAS OLD ENOUGH TO HAVE HIS FIRST DRINK.



BY AGE 16, ROD WAS SOAKING UP GARAGE ROCK AND SOUTHERN DELTA BLUES AND MASTERING IT TECHNICALLY AT A RELENTLESS PACE.



SUBSEQUENTLY INFLUENCED BY EARLY SOUL AS WELL, HAMDALLAH TOOK HIS MUSIC TO YET ANOTHER LEVEL; AND BY AGE 17, HE WAS SHARING THE STAGE WITH INFLUENCES SUCH AS BLUES PRODIGY SEAN COSTELLO, JACK WHITE MENTOR DEXTER ROMWEBER AND MANY, MANY MORE.



THE ELEMENTS IN ROD'S ORIGINAL MUSICAL ARE ROOTED IN BLUES, GARAGE AND EARLY SOUL. DARK STORYTELLING AND AMERICAN ROOTS MUSIC PLAY A BIG PART IN HIS SONGWRITING AS WELL. HE CREATES A SOUND THAT CAN BE LIKENED TO SUCH ARTISTS AS FLAT DUO JETS, CAPTAIN BEEFHEART AND THE BLACK KEYS.



THINK ABOUT IT, HAMDALLAH’S DEBUT EP, WAS RELEASED MAY 1ST, 2014. IT IS A WAILING GARAGE-ROCK STOMPER WITH BLUESY, LO-FI VOCALS ALL THROUGHOUT ITS FIVE TRACKS. THE SINGLE "THINK ABOUT IT" WILL KEEP YOUR HEAD BOBBING WITH ITS DIRTY GUITAR AND PUNK ROCK ATTITUDE, ALL WHILE HIS SOULFUL VOCALS THREAD THROUGHOUT.



"CARRY YOU HOME" FEATURES COLONEL J.D. WILKES, OF THE LEGENDARY SHACK SHAKERS, A BAND ROD HAS TOURED WITH WORLDWIDE. WILKES ADDS BOTH BANJO AND AN ALMOST-DREAMY, WURLITZER PIANO TO THIS BLUESY WESTERN TUNE.



CRAFTING A SOUND FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE, DYNAMIC VARIATION AND MELODIC VOCALS, ROD HAMDALLAH STANDS POISED TO TAKE THIS SHOW ON THE ROAD… AND AROUND THE WORLD! BECAUSE, FOR ROD, HUNGER IS HIS MAIN HALLMARK. IT IS AN UNDENIABLE QUALITY IN HIS SOUL.
Bad Spell
Bad Spell is a three-piece garage rock & roll combo hailing from Atlanta, GA.
Members Bryan G. Malone (The Forty-Fives), Shane Pringle (Tiger! Tiger!, Go-Devils) and Pietro Digenarro (The Booze, Midnight Larks) produce an electric and driving rock & roll sound that draws from such influences as early Stones, Sonics, Remains, Roky Erickson, MC5, Dead Moon, Moving Sidewalks, Scientists, Howlin' Wolf & Chuck Berry to name a few.

Forming in 2016, the band began to play locally but soon found themselves being asked to perform in venues all over the Southeast with acts such as Guitar Wolf, NoBunny, Subsonics and many others.
The approach was simple: A fuzzy guitar, a booming baritone and a madman on drums playing catchy songs with a more than a hint of hell-bound attitude and plenty of reckless abandon. Their psyched-out over the top live show has endeared them to the Atlanta music scene and beyond.

Bad Spell's first recording effort "Don't Go Out Tonight" was recorded in 2018 at Atlanta's Living Room Studios (Black Lips, Curtis Harding, Jacuzzi Boys etc) and is a rollicking 35 minutes of fuzzed-out, psyched-up southern garage rock & roll.

Coming this Spring on Midnight Cruiser Records!!



"The ass-kicking three-man uprising known as Bad Spell is the best fucking band in Atlanta right now! A three ring circus of clashing intensity."
Jeff Clark - Stomp & Stammer

"This is Dirty Ass Rock & Roll!"
Bullet Music

"Bad Spell’s most recent track titled “Don’t Go Out Tonight,” offers a healthy dose of fuzzed up, grimy psychedelia. Throughout the song, which was produced by Bad Spell and Ed Rawls of Living Room Studios, singer Bryan Malone’s scratchy vocals deal with topics of paranoia and loneliness.
The song is both gloomy and grinding, maintaining momentum via drum crashes with organ pads courtesy of guest musician Spencer Garn, and a trippy and scuffed up guitar solo that rips all the way to the end of the song."
