392FP is somewhere in between rat rods and Mad Max, between Flash Gordon and the The Thing, between Suicide Girls and Barbara Bach; what we've cobbled together from melted Legos, M-80'd models and old Kiss records.

Biography

In prison-booze fashion, 392 FirePower is brewed from the dregs of Birmingham’s SoulShaper, as well as Jackson, MS’ Fling Hammer and Hattiesburg, MS’ Schizophonic. The resulting microgroup (everybody knows that Journey was the last real Supergroup) is somewhere in between rat rods and Mad Max, between Flash Gordon and the The Thing, between Suicide Girls and Barbara Bach; what we've cobbled together from melted Legos, M-80'd models and old Kiss records.

Songwriting is led by Jason Lee, who seems hell-bent on outdoing Malcolm Young on perfecting the amped-up rock anthem. Also responsible for rhythm guitar and lead vocals, Jason’s tunes remind you of Lance Armstrong: fast and no fat. Jason was a part of SoulShaper and records 392FP as well as other acts in his studio.

Greg Stephens, also from SoulShaper, a couldn’t find anyone serious enough about a Van Halen tribute band, so dedicated his lead guitar skills to 392FP’s barnburners. Don’t worry, he won’t wear overalls (well, there was that one time…)

Bassist Scott Goodwin was the rhythm driver for Schizophonic, the heavy prog-rock kings of MS a few years back. Always knowing when to root down and when to punch, Scott nails the bowel-shaking duties.

Matt Brennan is in charge of overplaying cymbals. On sabbatical from Fling Hammer and the market being scarce for Keith Moon impersonators, the timing was right to abuse 392FP’s catalog. Depending on the night, you may see an overblown acrylic bastion or a minimalist 2-piece sub-kit. Please do not dare him to any other extremes, we have a band to run. And despite what he thinks, it’s about the music, not him.
