"Album Review: Alley Of The Ignots"

The Psycho Nubs are a great duo with an odd name. This album is fun, energetic, creative and overall awesome. Their style swings around from political-themed glam-tinged rock over to basement punk and around the corner to psychobilly. Impressively, they show no hesitation and rock all 17 tracks with a pure, musical passion that’s often lost in mainstream bands.

At times reminiscent of 50’s do-wop ballads, the Psycho Nubs also channel the Descendants, the Groovie Ghoulies, and a touch of early Beastie Boys. There are love songs to PBR, Mary Anne from Gilligan and Monica May, anti-establishment punk themes peppered with “woah-oh” choruses, and tales of alien invasion and the zombie apocolypse. These guys are lyrically entertaining, musically talented, and right up my alley. - !Upstarter Punk Reviews

"Razorcake Review"

I love singers who sound like cartoon characters. All the songs on this disc seem like they are sung by some colorful Saturday morning mischief maker with whammy bars attached to his vocal cords. More importantly, the songs are catchy. When I listen to “Zombie Hill,” I can clearly picture an animated scene in which a punk rock band is running down the middle of a city street, their legs spinning wildly, getting nowhere while a mob of corpses with gnarled teeth chase them. Even after this image has passed, I’ve still got the song in my head. Listen to this and see what cartoons it makes in your brain! –MP Johnson (Self-released, - Razorcake Magazine

"Album Review: First Human Beings To Die On The Moon"

The Psycho Nubs – First Human Beings To Die On The Moon / 2005 Self / 20 Tracks / / / Reviewed 20 April 2006

”Robot Crazy” is a good start for “First Human Beings”, as it establishes The Psycho Nubs as fans of Fugazi, Husker Du, and The Pixies. The driving beat of the track has punk influences, but is something that is much more moderated than most of the punk acts out on the market. After this quick introduction, something quicker hits listeners during “Promenade”. This track is something that follows all the trends of punk music perfectly; three chords, a slightly-snotty set of vocals (along the style of The Vandals and Anti-Flag), and a funny set of circumstances (again, The Vandals and The Aquabats).

Each of the tracks on “First Human Beings” hovers around about a minute and a half; twenty tracks here go by in thirty-seven minutes. The production does not have much in the way of bells and whistles, but this is just done to allow the bands to shine on their own merits.

What The Psycho Nubs do with “First Human Beings” is create a style that allows them to bail out of a track if things get repetitious much; this repetition is something that just does not happen as the band tries to add different styles in each and every track on the disc. The halting style of “How It Started” is something that has a parallel in early Talking Heads and Wall of Voodoo, but The Psycho Nubs use it to drastically change the overall sound of the disc. In much the same way, the increased role of the vocals in creating the harmony on “Johnny Kicks” keeps individuals guessing what exactly is next for the band on the disc. Everything that the band attempts during “First Human Beings” goes off well, with the ultimate result of this ever-shifting style being the fact that The Psycho Nubs create a great album here. There are enough nods to the past that the overall sound of “First Human Beings” is something out of mid-nineties Lookout Records (just listen to the catchy but slightly depressing tone of “Killing The Grind” to hear what I’m talking about), but The Psycho Nubs have enough talent to make this a current album that speaks well to current fans. Most bands would not be able to carry twenty songs on their albums, a feat that The Psycho Nubs do without breaking even the slightest sweat. Here’s to hoping that listeners can hear more of The Psycho Nubs in the future.

More Than A Mouthful 7"EP (March 2010)



The story of this anomalistic punk rock duo begins in 1996 when they first practiced in a Florida-bound grandmother's kitchen who left her home open to the creative process.

Through the years they went relatively unnoticed in the local scene and endured endless ridicule. It was all the typical ups and downs of two young cretinoids trying to transform their sound from neighborhood noise pollution into something righteous.

With uncompromising determination and adversity fueling the fire these two turned the tide and made something that began laughable into a respectable DIY punk band. This turn of events has led to sharing the stage with bands such as Sloppy Seconds (Nitro Records), The Cobra Skulls (Red Scare Records), La Plebe (Red Scare Records), The Guts (Ex-Queers, Ex-Nobodys), The Spunks (Gearhead Records) and The Saltwater Vampires (Midwest underground punk kings).

Psycho Nubs' have had a long association with film. They've lent their musical stylings to INEXCHANGE and QUENCH, both directed by Zack Parker. Both critically acclaimed films have received distribution and can be found in movie stores domestically and internationally. The Psycho Nubs' very own, Brandon Owens has Story By Credits for QUENCH and was the Director Of Photography for INEXCHANGE. Jakob Bilinski, director of SHADE OF GREY, utilized “Tonight Yer Gonna Die” in that fine film.

With a slew of basement recordings, two full-length self-released albums, three tours, and a new Vinyl 7” EP in the works, The Psycho Nubs still find ways to get it done despite living 2,202 miles apart. The occasional live peformance still happens. New recordings mysteriously appear. Rumors of tours are found to be true. Don't Panic! You got The Psycho Nubs flu.
