The Lower Broads....
"Obviously influenced by the likes of David Bowie, Iggy Pop and T-Rex, their sin-soaked tunes tell tales of boozy nights and loose women. Believe it or not, these guys are from Nashville! Count us in." - City@Night Magazine

"Music Business Radio"

"Love the music. Love the guys voice; full of attitude. It's like Queen meets Los Lobos. It has that Queen vibe. I like it. I like the guys voice a lot. So much attitude. Dangerously anthemic kind of feel to it. Once it came around one time you pretty much know where it's going...but it's still entertaining!"

The sordid story of the Lower Broads

Johnny was without a last name. Not that he particularly cared, mind you. He just forgot his from years of drinking (Maker’s Mark on the rocks, thank you very much). While living the life of Bukowski (albeit in Queens, NY), an ill wind blew Johnny into Nashville, along with a bottle of whiskey, his electric guitar, a love for rock and roll (Dolls-style, preferably), and (according to your point of view) a bad attitude. Upon landing, Johnny was accosted by another whiskey aficionado, Murphy. A fellow New York ex-pat Murphy wasn’t like the other drunks Johnny usually hung around with; this one played drums and upon laying eyes upon the recently transplanted guitarist, christened him “Johnny Broad”. Armed with Murphy and a shared love for sleazy glam/punk/garage rock and roll, The Lower Broads (as they will henceforth be referred to) decided then and there to form Nashville’s sleaziest glam/punk/garage band. After recording their debut record, Broads!Broads!Broads!, produced by Those Legendary Shack Shakers Mark Robertson, the “Broads” recruited two new down-at-heel rockers, named Christopher Ratay on bass and Todd Alan Martin on lead guitar completing the line-up. The addition of these two Nashville boys has propelled the Broads into the upper echelon (“Whadduzit mean?”-Johnny Broad) of the Nashville rock and roll scene. These Broads wow the girls with their filthy rock and roll, while scaring the boys so bad they grow greasy hair and spout cigarette and whiskey tainted-not-enough-sleep eyes by the end of their set. Loud, raucous, alcohol infused, drug saturated, and very occasionally, sensitive, The Lower Broads are ready to change you. Change for the better? I think so. Then again, like Bukowski, I’m always drunk.
