Biography

Despite being considerably young (Drew's 23, Rob's 20, Helen's 21...like, yesterday), these kids are no strangers to the Athens/Atlanta DIY music scenes. Drews involvement in Athens punk has long been established: among other projects, Drew played drums for Life is a Fight as well as thrash band Gasmask and Matchsticks. Currently, Drew has a solo ambient project called Chartreuse on Thor's Rubber Hammer. Helen played bass in Brickmason (Atl) which included members of Benard, Blame Game and Ocelot. Although based in Athens, Chrissakes has been helping to bridge the gap between the sometimes oil and water mix of Athens and Atlanta bands.

Influences include: Cherubs, Black Sabbath, Hammerhead, Unwound, Shellac, Young Widows, Pissed Jeans, The Jesus Lizard, and others.

Buddy-bands Chrissakes likes to play with around Atl and Athens include: Benard, Hawks, Cinemechanica, We Vs. the Shark, Fag Static, The Sunglasses, Chopper, American Cheeseburger, The Matt Kurz One
