Beer Breakfast Dungeness Crab
From the icy depths of West Philadelphia comes the chaotic punk of Beer Breakfast Dungeness Crab. Strange Mono is announcing the release of the band’s second album and first physical release. Taking their name from the famous West Philly bodega that served as their sole source of beer due to its close proximity to their underground parking garage practice space. Maybe it’s all the fumes, or the lack of oxygen but something miraculous happened in those dark corners to produce such an original and inspired band.
Frontman Brian Nothing (Spazm 151, Total Fucking Destruction, Syzlak) has a strident vocal style that carves through the unshakeable rhythm section on tracks like “Your Gonna Die” and “Eye of Nothing”. Bassist Ross Pritchett (The Company Corvette, Big Burly) takes vocal duty on “I’m Out” and “Whip it’s, Good” unleashing a voice both fully deranged, and engrossing. Drummer Skip never misses a beat, with his style sitting between Sabbath’s Bill Ward and Butthole surfers’ King Coffey. Ripping leads, non-stop riff’s, fuzzed out tube amps, and irreverent lyrics make BBDC a truly one of a kind band.
