22nd Century’s hard punching and sometimes comical style is a mixture of Ramones style power punk with a healthy dose of 1990’s grunge. Their debut CD was produced by legendary music producer John Webster (Aerosmith, Cher, The Cult) and has garnered attention, including honorable mention in Billboard’s 2009 song writing contest. The trio has stuck to playing venues on the West Coast of North America (from LA to Vancouver) but will seek to expand their reach to Europe and Asia in 2010.
The band is currently writing for their second album, due out in 2010, which will include remakes of Martha and the Muffins “Echo Beach” and Angel City’s “No Secrets”.

The band has a long history. Back in high school, drummer Zippy Pinhead formed the Stiffs with Gerry Useless (who later formed the Subhumans) and Mike Normal; later forming “Sgt. Nick Penis and the Brassball Battalion” with D.O.A. founders Randy Rampage and Chuck Biscuits. While still in Victoria, Duane met Zippy while playing bass for soon to be star Chrissy Steele. Zippy went on to move to San Francisco to play with the influential band K.G.B. before returning to Vancouver to join D.O.A.
Over the next 6 years, Zippy Pinhead shifted between Vancouver and California playing in some well known bands (The Dils, Art Bergman, The Mutants, Los Popularos, Black Molly’s, Beat Farmers and The Fiends.) and even appeared on music videos with Sheena Easton and Rick Springfield. Duane left the music scene for a while to pursue a career in professional cycling after leaving recording band Centerfold when the band’s funding vanished. He returned to music nearly a decade later after joining up with Wade Morissette, brother of Alanis Morissette, to play acoustic performances.

Although distracted by his day job, Plommer still pursued his passion. He achieved music success in the summer of 1999 as a guitarist for Anthill when their debut CD spun off a song called “Child of Ambition”. The blistering, guitar heavy, single was picked up by rock radio stations all across Western Canada. After some petty conflicts with the singer, Plommer left Anthill in 2001 to pursue a solo project called Little Green Planet. Tim worked hard on his solo CD (released 2006) while Duane played with Vancouver alt-punk band F.L.U. After taking Little Green Planet live Plommer met Chaos at a gig in late 2006 and both realized their respective projects were not where they needed to be. 22nd Century was formed soon after with original drummer, Glenn Golflom rounding out the trio. Duane continued playing part time for Punk-Metal band Stress Factor 9 which included former Annihilator drummer Ray Harttman and D.O.A. bass player/founder Randy Rampage.
Glen left 22nd Century in the Spring of 2009 due to persistent wrist injuries and, after a lengthy search for a replacement, Zippy completed the trio early in the summer of 2009.
