Voodoo Glow Skulls
Voodoo Glow Skulls
In their 24 years of existence, the Voodoo Glow Skulls have an impressive list of achievements. 9 albums, one million records sold, appearances in exotic locations like Brazil and Japan as well as the creation of a record store, record label, recording studio and a music venue attests to the remarkable creativity and energy of the band. Formed in 1988, Voodoo Glow Skulls meshed hardcore punk, traditional ska, tough guitar riffs and the Mexican music of their roots to create the prototype for the West Coast ska-core sound. Unflinchingly honest, their songs often used humor to comment on harsh political realities - from racial inequity to unrest overseas. Singing in both Spanish and English, Voodoo Glow Skulls' bilingual musical tradition has been a hallmark of the band since they began.

The core of the band since the beginning has been the three Casillas brothers, Frank, Eddie and Jorge. With a list of accomplishments that might make some bands ready to slow their pace, the band shows no signs of slowing down. Voodoo Glow Skulls dubbed their sound "California street music" - a perfect description of their high octane mix of rock, punk, ska and hardcore.

Voodoo Glow Skulls 9th studio album "Break the Spell" was released on January 17th on Smelvis Records and is available now!

Current Line Up:

Eddie Casillas-Guitar

Frank Casillas-Vocals

Three Grams
Three Grams
3 Grams Over An Ounce is an all out fast heavy, yet catchy, and most of all fun music. They've been compared to Suicide Machines, Operation Ivy, Choking Victim, and The Bouncing Souls. Mixing the styles of the variety of music that the members listen to, often the next song won't sound like the last. With dual vocals with songs ranging from social injustice, frustration, to smoking some weed, to break-ups, blazing bass rifts, epic solos, fast, technical beats, and the upstroke, to heavy distorted guitar, followed by mind blowing riffs; 3 Grams is something to hear for yourself.
The Couch Bombs
The Couch Bombs emerged after the ending of the ska band, Hatrick Penry. The bassist/guitarist Ian Rosenstein was looking to begin a new project during June of 2013 when he met up with his longtime friend Paul Fatur. They had been in previous bands together and Ian knew he needed a bass player. Ian called up Jake Johnson, former band mate of Hatrick Penry to play bass. Drummer Mason Kolodziej joined the band in late February 2014 and gives the band its music an aggressive and dynamic quality. The sound of The Couch Bombs is driving, energized and authentic punk rock.

The music brings a new perspective and originality to the deifying genre of punk.
