Feeling a bit camera shy


They’re the Captain Planet of bands, or maybe the Constructabots of Transformers… Anyway, their powers combine to form a greater good in music, creating blues rock with edge and candor. Oh yeah, they also save the world from evil purple robots that transform into giant lasers…

Coming from an unlikely blues scene in upstate NY, which actually only existed in his house, Devin sauntered in with a harp mic in one hand and a voc mic in the other. He’s played blues across the marble, Austin TX, New York, Prague, spreading blues like chicken pox in third grade. Mark “Madmardigan” aka “The Fleur” LaFleur’s combustion beats could fill an airplane hanger. Classically trained and constructed at Berkley, Jason can play it all and pretty much has. Harlan attacks guitar riffs with such ferocity that guitar strings break when he looks at them crooked. And Jedd rounds their sound like Joe Robinson taking third base, a flurry of notes that’s always driving ahead. What effect do these five have on each other? The answer is in their music. Some call garage, some call it indie, they call it tramp; the C-section of Rock music, too big to come out the traditional way.

All members were strewn about on the East coast. Mark and Devin met in college and formed Project Betamax, a bluesy rock band that played some clubs and scored some films in Boston for two years before the coasts changed. Devin moved to Los Angeles and promptly formed the punk blues band Brass Tax, which began playing Hollywood clubs after only two months of practice and produced an EP during its new born year. Jason Meyers entered Brass Tax as the bass player and left as the lead guitarist of Bad Mitten. The unlikely godsend of a broken hand restricted Devin to playing harp and singing and that’s where Harlan came in, or returned; he also made the exodus from Emerson to LA. So Harlan slung his axe into a nearby tree and declared, “Let’s play house.” Mark couldn’t help but move to LA and reform what never was. Jedd has bookended the country playing with known bands such as Push Me, Halo Gin, and Zox, before finding his home with Bad Mitten: A super-band in their own rights.

In less than a year they’ve climbed their way up from the cracks of beer sticky, vomit soaked floors, and have begun hopping from stage to stage across local LA venues such as: Viper Room, The Roxy, Good Hurt, The Gig, The Joint, M Bar, Saddle Ranch, some-dive-bar-in-Sherman-Oaks, Hard Rock, The Cat Club... Each show being a fist up from the last, drawing larger crowds and spawning more fans, getting people up on their feet then knocking them back off ‘em.
