We are a GORAR band. Part of a new and ridiculous movement growing like a mushroom upon the bones of the "music industry", GORAR stands for; Grandpas On a Rampage Art Rock. It means we proceed without giving much of F*** about anybody but ourselves in this endeavor. GORAR's patron saints are Frank Zappa, Godzilla, Gandalf, Sasquatch & Thelonious Monk.
Once upon a time three talented friends got together and started playing loud electric sounds in garages, extra bedrooms, and basements. (insert peanut shells on the floor anecdote here) It was the glorious 90s and they were all listening to Screaming Trees, Mudhoney, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Sound Garden, and many other notable grungy NWesty sounding flannal-clad ne'er-do-wells. Fast forward many life changes for good and bad. Just before the pandemic years, another music friend started coming around to observe their doodlings. Deacon Raleigh St James was immediately struck by the classic garage rock tone and weird structures of their slightly ossified set. He starting hearing stories and words as he listened, started coming around more and more... Before you know it, "Bob's your uncle!" Fuzzy Horrible was born. What had been an amorphous cacophony of fun, was now a laser focused well oiled machine of strange science fiction, personal emotional confessions, mythmaking, philosophy, and dating advice.
Deacon Raleigh St James had given shape to the sounds, words to the frequencies. The three old friends were overjoyed. Deacon set about helping them put themselves out there to gig and let an identity emerge. Now there are new shows in the offing and a determination to have more fun without necessarliy getting naked, drugged out, and famous. In fact, we refuse to get naked (I mean, situationally there's always exceptions). We deny the role of drugs in our lives (Except when there's a bad headache or injury of course Rx for the most part). We laugh at fame. We've always wanted to be famous, but just to a small very select group of people we like and know personally. So join the ride. Have some fun. Come to a show.
Plans for the future of infamy include; "full length" album recordings, more live shows, new songs, better t-shirts, more dancing at shows, a leisurely tour of the W. Coast, Europe, Asia, probably Bellingham and Spokane.
Inquire about joining the "Horribellas". If you dance at one of our shows we owe you a free weird T-shirt.
