Bloodshot Bill started playing in his hometown of Montreal, around 1998, with just a guitar and a stomp board. Since then, he has had over 30 releases throughout Europe, USA and Canada — places he still tours frequently. He was banned from entering the States for 5 years (2006-2011) and made his first «welcome back» show in USA at the Norton Records 25th Anniversary Weekend, performing alongside such legendary acts such as Andre Williams, The Sonics, 5678's, Mighty Hannibal and The South Bay Surfers. Since 2003 his hair has been slicked with his own brand of grease, «Nice 'n' Greasy», and he plays his guitar through his custom made Richtone Amp. He's been in lotsa bands you've never heard of (Hubcaps, Guilloteens, Bootlegs, Hand-Cuffs, Pouteens, Hick-Ups, Squirt). Won FME's Coup De Coeur prize in 2007. Released 2 records with Mark «BBQ» Sultan as The Ding- Dongs. Has been in several films & documentaries. Collaborates with King Khan as Tandoori Knights, and Bollywood Argyles. He's the spokesmen for a hamburger, The Degeue («disgusting burger» translated). Plays upright bass sometimes in Heavy Trash. Usually travels alone as a one man band.
Jittery Jack brings his East Coast bang to the world of Rockabilly and 50's inspired Rock 'n' Roll. He has headlined at the Viva Las Vegas festival numerous times, and has toured internationally headlining many festivals including UK's the Rockabilly Rave and Australia's Camperdown Cruise. Jack has also recorded for both Wild Records in Hollywood, CA and Rhythm Bomb Records in Germany who released his 2014 full length, «Gonna Have A Time». His upcoming releases will be on Swelltune Records, and currently has a new 45 out on Swelltune with his other band, The Raging Teens.
