Chuck Violence and his Oneman Band Orchestra - 'Drinking and Gambling' + live@potoma

Chuck Violence is a one-man-band who plays gritty lovely blues-punk. Tasty. This is from his garagepunk profile:

'During summertime in 2005, after listening to several Hasil Adkin’s albums, Chuck realized that he never heard it before: a very unique and particular kind of rock n’ roll music. So Chuck starts his musical career as an oneman band, playing all instruments at the same time. Using drums, electric guitar, kazoo and a megaphone to sing loud and raw as a sharp knife, it raised “Chuck Violence & His Oneman Band Orchestra”.

You gonna notice in his songs a strong flavor of punk & blues, garage rock, rockabilly, giving you a hypnotic primitive rhythm and ultra groovy moment. Chuck is all about original techniques and songs that will take you to the wild and glorious rock ‘n roll, with a greasy soul, outrageous movements of his body and clapping hands like the spirituals used to do.

Chuck Violence has participated many festivals of independent music in America and Europe, touring, playing and releasing his work in compilations and labels like Rock N’ Purgatory (USA), Turbochainsaw (United Kingdom), Mongrel (Canada), Shit In Can (France).

If you want to know about his discography check it out: “Hijo de Puta From México” (2006), “Bandolero Mexicano” (2007), “Guadalupe Hoodoo Lady” (2008).'

I could not find where we'd be able to buy his records, but when I do I'll let you know. For now, enjoy these vids!
