CH3

visit CH3 on facebook visit CH3’s website Channel 3 was formed in 1980 by childhood friend Mike Magrann and Kimm Gardener. They met in the newborn suburban community of Cerritos CA, innocent 8 year old lads lads who remain life long friends against a backdrop of ever changing cultural storms. They learned to play guitar together in junior high and witnessed the birth of punk rock in the heady Southern California scene of the early 80’s. They graduated from being obsessed fans to backyard party hacks and finally upon the stage themselves. Contemporaries of fellow So Cal punks Social Distortion, Bad Religion, T.S.O.L., Circle Jerks, etc., CH3 has been steadily touring the world since releasing their first eponymous EP on the influential Posh Boy label in 1981. Posh Boy then asked them to record a full-length album, Fear Of Life. Tracks like ‘You Make Me Feel Cheap’, with its peppy female backing and poppy arrangement, ostensibly betrayed inclinations towards securing a more mainstream audience After The Lights Go Out was a more ‘mature’ effort, though interest in the UK had by now dissipated, whilst other former supporters were perturbed by the inclusion of the Rolling Stones’ ‘Stupid Girl’ and a shift away from the group’s . Jay Lansford (ex-Stepmothers and Posh Boy production intern) joined on bass for the 1983 tour in support of After The Lights Go Out, and was present also for Airborne, as Channel 3 were scooped up, alongside peers TSOL, by Enigma. But they got lost in the shuffle after Capitol bought the label out. They returned to form with 2002’s Channel 3 album on the Doctor Strange label and put out a collection of singles with Hostage Records, collected on Home For the Homeless album (Wanda Records DE, 2015) Their latest release, Put ‘Em Up (TKO Records 2017) sees the reunion of several long time CH3 conspirators. Past Channel 3 member and Posh Boy house producer Jay Lansford returned to produce. Jim Monroe of Racket Room Studios engineered and mixed the songs, and Mark Rainey relaunced the venerable TKO record label with this new release. Seve Soto (Adolescents) lends his sweet backing vocal charms. It is a homecoming on all fronts. The band continues to tour worldwide, performing club dates and festivals in the USA and Europe.

JUDICIARY

visit JUDICIARY on facebook visit JUDICIARY’s website Judiciary is a 5-piece metallic hardcore band from Lubbock, Texas formed in 2013. Coming from a near non-existent scene in the middle of nowhere, Judiciary managed to start themselves from the bare minimum and evolve into what would become an oddity of success within their region. Their first release, DEMO ’14, was a 6-song debut of sounds and influences not commonly heard in or around their hometown. Following the Demo’s well-received release, the band spent the remainder of that year and the next writing and playing various shows around their home state with bands like Backtrack, Gatecreeper, and Xibalba, just to name a few.

CUTTHROAT LA

visit CUTTHROAT LA on facebook visit CUTTHROAT LA’s website Inspired by the streets and surrounded by political, and religious chaos, CutthroatLA uses music as a platform to express the truths that the media hides. Using a mixture of hardcore, beatdown, 90s hip-hop and thrash as a canvas to express their feelings about this crazy world we live in, CutthroatLA is a band of brothers coming from different musical backgrounds to form a bond that can’t be broken. The band consists of the “Vinny Paul and Dimebag” of the hardcore world, Art Banura on drums, and Dan Banura on guitars. Jesse Gomez plays a ferocious bass while Neil Roemer delivers the message. With all members having a lengthy history in other bands touring the world for years, CutthroatLA was assembled after getting together to jam and everything clicked.
