Biography

If you know anything about Las Vegas punk then you know about the legendary Peccadilloes. Maybe you’ve seen someone wearing their shirt or perhaps you’ve heard them on the Double Down Saloon juke box. If you’re one of the lucky ones, you caught them live. Yeah, if you know anything about real punk, you know them. And you know what “fuck you” is supposed to sound like.

The most underrated punk band in the United States? That’s probably true. And now, from the ashes of the Peccadilloes comes a new band, with a new direction, new music and the same bad attitude.

Meet The Gashers, a 3-piece band from Nevada with deep roots in Vegas punk history, solid, dynamic chops, and some serious anger issues. Jason, Sandy and James helped form the iconic Peccadilloes in 2003, and, after releasing four full length CDs, playing countless sold-out shows and building a huge, loyal following they wanted to try something new. In 2011, the three formed The Gashers and in the process gave a fresh new voice to everything punk is supposed to be.

They are a visceral, angry, honest, ball of knives. They are the spit in the eye of conventional music and a powerful beer-breath of fresh air in a stale world of processed, auto-tuned, pre-packaged bullshit. They defy category and redefine DIY, all while holding true to their old school roots. They are REAL.

Lyrics

Panic

Written By: The Gashers

GIVE AND TAKE DAYBREAK
WATCH YOUR FREEDOMS FADE AWAY
BECOME A SLAVE BREAK AWAY
DON’T START TO PANIC
GRAB YOUR GUNS DON’T HESITATE
ACTIONS MAY BE DRASTIC
PROTECT YOURSELF SAVE YOURSELF
BEFORE THEY COME AND GET YOU TOO

REALITY IS FATAL
BY NOW YOU SHOULD BE FRANTIC
FREEDOM STARTS TO SUFFER
THEN YOU START TO PANIC

REVOLT IN YOU
THIS TIME WE MUST PULL THROUGH

Stuffed

I DON’T WANNA BE NO BUSINESS MAN
I JUST WANNA PLAY IN A PUNK ROCK BAND
I DON’T WANNA BE NO CORPORATE DREAM
GOOD TIMES WITH MY FRIENDS IS ALL I NEED

I JUST WANNA GO
GO TO A SHOW
LET’S POGO

A 12 PACK AND ONE TINY ROOM
WHERE THREE COMES NATURALLY
SOMETHING NEW WHILE GETTING OLD
AND FEELING MORE THAN FREE
LOWERED EXPECTATIONS MAKE
FOR ROOM TO BREATHE AND GROW
MUSIC IS THE RIGHT IDEA
THAT’S ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW

DRUNKEN STATE
DRUNKEN STATE AGAIN
I’M HAVIN’ FUN
DRINKIN’ WITH MY FRIENDS
DRUNKEN STATE
I’M IN THE PIT AGAIN
I’M HAVIN’ FUN
RIPPIN’ WITH MY BAND

Justice

Written By: The Gashers

IN DUE TIME WE ALL ROT AWAY
SO LIVE YOUR LIFE LIKE IT’S YOUR LAST DAY
TRUE CIVILIANS LIVING IN POVERTY
BREAKING ALL THE RULES UNTIL WE'RE FREE

SENDING OUR BOYS OFF TO WAR
BECOME A MAN AND LIVE DIRT POOR
NO DOCTORS FOR A CRIPPLED BRAIN
UNTOLD STORIES THOUSANDS SLAIN

GONNA BE NO TIME TO PRAY
THE CHAINS ARE ON THEIR WAY
SCANDALS LIE ON CAPITOL HILL
THEY DO THE CRIME WE FLIP THE BILL

NO INTRUST IN JUSTICE
NO INTRUST IN JUSTICE

WHO’S GOT THE GUTS TO BREAK DOWN WALLS
WHO STANDS ALONE WHO MAKES FIRST CALLS
ACTIONS STAGNANT WASTE OF TIME
PULL THE WOOL BACK FROM YOUR EYES
