UK Old School Punk band, living and playing in Los Angeles California. Not politically correct and we don't give a shit - we say what others want to say but are too bloody soft to. We put on a great show and dont take prisoners, unless they buy us a beer !

Biography

Blackburn born Ian England (ex-Boston Babies) and Stockport born Johnny F (ex-Cheaters) formed Blunt, whose main aim was to re-introduce Californian punks to long forgotten and even rarely played Old School UK Punk. Johnny got on the blower and secured the services of Coventry born drummer Ringo Fandango (ex-Skinpatrol) and Ian invited Birmingham born Skid Mark (ex-Sensa Yuma) to join Blunt. Line-up from September 2006 was:
Ian England - Vocals
Johnny F - Bass
Skid Mark - Guitar & Vocals
Ringo Fandango - Drums
In January 2007 a mini-tour of California/Nevada was played along with The Negatives from Bradford UK, and The Objex from Las Vegas as well as some other local Los Angeles bands. Blunt's first live performance was at the Fat Liver Tavern in Lomita, CA, and other venues played were in Downtown Los Angeles at The Airliner and at The Cocaine, along with The Brokeass Cantina and Khoury's in Long Beach, and Las Vegas's famous Double Down Saloon. The band have received great feedback from punks of all ages, and have buit an ever increasing fanbase in the Long Beach area. In September 2007 the bands progress became inhibited by certain circumstances and seemed to have slowed down, so a change of line-up was decided. Therefore Blunt's last gig with the original line-up was at The Anarchy Library in Downey, CA in August 2007. The plan for the rest of the year is for the band to find accomplished replacements, to rehearse, and re-record material whilst writing new material for a projected comeback to playing 'live' gigs again probably @ January or February 2008. Blunt were born out of the frustration and hatred of todays corrupt music industry. If you would like to book us please remember : All those wankers calling themselves 'promotors', who peddle their promises of stardom IF you sell 100 tickets for them at a festival they are 'inviting' you to play at, can go and fuck themselves. All the bar and club booking agents who never give a band a gig unless you guarentee 30 or more people turning up, and are actually killing the punk scene, can go and fuck themselves too. Anybody involved with Clear Channel, who if you didn't know force their DJ's to play only 'authorised' playlists can kiss our big fat dirty arses too. And to all those record companies who dont give a fuck about their acts and only really give a fuck about how much money they can make from you can suck on it too. We don't need you, our music and attitude is what we are about, and we don't give a fuck what you have to offer us. We have met you all and will not have the piss taken out of us again. For us to play your venue you'll have to at least do the desent thing and offer us gas money. If we like you we will probably do it for nothing anyway. So make us like you OK ?

****** DRUMMER WANTED ******

Tight as fuck Punk Rock N’ Roll band Blunt are now seeking new band members with the talent, commitment & determination to supply the essential qualities needed for success. We are NOT looking for anyone who wants to be in a band for 'fun'. We want serious inquiries only please.
The band is established in Los Angeles and Long Beach where they have been making a name for themselves playing great live shows. The band consists of very hard working; ego-less, & hungry individuals destined for greatness and we are looking for the same qualities in future band members. We are looking for someone who we can believe in, who is willing to work hard and that has something of substance to say with their instrument. This band will provide a reliable and strong platform for your creativeness. The band’s sound could be said to be Old School Punk Rock N’ Roll but we are not afraid to experiment. The band is seeking long-term success and plans to evolve and grow as musicians. This is a long term project - looking to start rehearsals before the end of the year with giging in California early next year.
If this sounds like what you are looking for and you believe you have what it takes, please get in touch.
