Biography

Take a bit of Max’s Kansas City New York sleaze and mix it with the primeval brutality of Iggy & the Stooges, the seedy glamour of 1970’s glitter trash and the caveman stomp of 60s garage rock, and you’ve got a group that’s on a take-no-prisoners rock ‘n’ roll mission.

Welcome to Bubblegum Screw. London’s hottest glam punk ‘n’ roll band.

Seeing them on stage for the first time, you’ll think you’re actually looking at Johnny Thunders, Dee Dee Ramone and Stiv Bators rocking out once again.

Mark Thorn on vocals and bassist Zuri Warsaw formed the band in 2006 through their mutual love for the 1970’s East Coast punk sound, primarily artists like the New York Dolls, Dead Boys and Ramones. Rich van Kerr on rhythm guitar and rock ‘n’ roll hellraiser Tommy Vommit on lead guitar were then drafted in. To complete the line-up, drummer Dave 666 was recruited to provide some musical muscle.

So far, Bubblegum Screw have toured as far away as Latvia, Estonia, Croatia, Serbia and Bulgaria and were the first British rock & roll band to play Bulgaria’s second largest city Plovdiv.

In the UK, they have opened for legendary acts such as L.A. Guns, Warrior Soul and The Adverts’ TV Smith among others. They’re known to be one of London’s most dangerous and exciting live acts, with their killer live shows earning them new fans wherever they play.

In April 2008, their song ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Loser’ off their debut EP ‘St Valentine’s Day Massacre’ was included on Classic Rock magazine’s compilation CD ‘Sons of Guns III’. Theme: bands that have the fire of early Guns N’ Roses.

Bubblegum Screw’s debut album “Rock ‘n’ Roll Losers” is currently in the final production stages and contains bucketloads of glam punk anthems such as ‘I Was A Teenage Fuckup’, ‘Because He Loves You’ and ‘Special Powers Of Love’.
