Sloppy Seconds
Sloppy Seconds is a Ramones/Dickies-influenced punk band from Indianapolis that started in the mid-1980s. With such underground hits as “Come Back, Traci” (a tribute to an underaged Traci Lords), “I Want ’em Dead”, and “So Fucked up”, the band prefers to sing about such topics as pornography, classic horror movies, old TV shows, comic books, alcohol, being fat, and getting drunk. They have been quoted as being proud to be fat, drunk, and stupid. Their name is the slang term for when a man has intercourse with another person who already has received another man’s semen in the relevant orifice.

The Queers
The Queers are an American punk rock band, formed in 1981 by Portsmouth, New Hampshire native Joseph “Joe” P. King (a.k.a. Joe Queer) along with Scott Gildersleeve (a.k.a. Tulu), and John “Jack” Hayes (a.k.a. Wimpy Rutherford). With the addition of Keith Hages (ex-guitarist of Berlin Brats) joining on bass in 1983 the band started playing their first public performances. This original lineup played a total of five or six live shows. The original lineup of The Queers initially broke up in late 1984, but reformed with Joe Queer and a new line-up in 1986. In 1990, the band signed with Shakin’ Street Records and released their first album Grow Up. The album earned the band notability within New England, but with the release of their next album on Lookout! Records, their following grew larger.

Raging Nathans
The Raging Nathans is a punk rock band from Dayton, OH. They just released their 5th LP on Rad Girlfriend Records/Brassneck Records called “Still Spitting Blood”, preceded by slew of split 7”s, EPs, four other LPs and a two Singles Collections. While following in the footsteps of their predecessors, The Raging Nathans pay homage to early Lookout, Epitaph and Fat Wreck bands at the same time blazing their own path and forging their own unique sound, always putting the punk before the pop. The band provides smart, brutally honest and sometimes-uncomfortable lyrical themes paired with unmistakably catchy vocal melodies and harmonies. Known for energetic live shows with plenty of banter, The Raging Nathans feel just as at home in the basement with 20 friends or on stage at the big Festival in front of a thousand strangers. The songs are fast and emotional and touch on a range of familiar and relateable topics. They have toured the entire US, Canada, Mainland Europe, the UK, Mexico and Central America. They’ve managed to create inspired songs that peak the listeners interest, evoke thoughts and emotion and bring a fresh sound to punk rock without sacrificing their DIY ethos. Everything that they have achieved has been through hard work and perseverance through touring. The Raging Nathans are more than happy to earn their keep. They are truly a punk bands punk band. All of the attitude, none of the ego.
