Studly Husband Rubbings

Studly Husband Rubbings

BandPopAvant-garde

An odd mix of indie rock, power pop, punk and the occasional blues or jazz number that simply speaks to offbeat outcasts of all kinds, everywhere. Catchy, weird, undeniable pop that is often humorous and irreverent, but always memorable. Known as SHR to fans.

Biography

Unique, perverse, irreverent - SHR has been called all of these. But there is no doubt this indie/power pop/punk/blues/jazz hybrid is diverse, powerful and catchy.

SHR was born in the back of a barn in Maryland in 1996 and was carted back and forth like the red-headed stepchild of two divorced, irresponsible parents between Maryland and Florida for several awful years.

The band finally decided to make the move to Florida in 2000.

However, after a year or two of creative bliss, the young SHR returned to a life of constant, hellish to-and-fro in 2003.

For absolutely no reason other than ignorance.

Now in 2004, the band is split between Maryland and Massachusetts/New Hampshire area. Which is much closer, nicer, and meaningful since all music areas the band has inhabited before has blown gigantic wads of meat.

Huge wads.

In a nutsack, that is the slightly true and only slightly informational history of the Studly Husband Rubbings.

They've put out some wholly wrong, but hooky albums and singles, with more to come. Soon.

So, in the dying breath of this half-assed biography - the world will know, be offended by, and then inevitably, finally laugh at these two mischevious honkies.

Ta-tas for now.
