Artist of the Year" and having radio airplay in dozens of countries
"The band's three members, Duane Chaos, Tim Plommer and Zippy Pinhead,
have really merged their musical direction" stated Eddy Bugnut of the band's label. "The songwriting is really strong in the singles Teenage Underwear Model
and U Generation as well as the title track, Howie the Skid. When I
first heard U Generation it reminded me of The Who's earlier live
performances. It is a song that basically kicks you in the face from
start to finish".
The CD's will are available via most popular digital distribution sites
such as iTunes, Rhapsody and Napster while the band's label uses many
Web 2.0 social media patterns to market the music via their own
