Biography

The Great Unwashed is a New York City based Rock trio who have been captivating the Staten Island music scene. In addition to their constant local shows, “TGU” has been earning new fans with every gig played in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens. Guitarist and singer Sean Kuhl, drummer Scott Jacobi, and bassist Anthony Scuderi became a three piece late in 2007; after a fourth band member left the group. Honing their new sound as a trio, the members of The Great Unwashed are proud descendants of their heroes: Fugazi, Hüsker Dü, and Dinosaur Jr. Singer Sean Kuhl’s shout/ talk vocals connect casual storytelling with frustrated cynicism amongst the band’s signature melodic refrains. Jacobi and Scuderi hold down tight rhythmic grooves and make light of frequent time signature changes, while Kuhl’s Hendrix-like riotous yet precise guitar solos define this ambitious Rock outfit.
