NICE GUYS PLAY MEAN SONGS
Ex-Cult
Ex-Cult
Taking cues from the psychedelic noise of the 1960’s, the art-damaged post-punk of the late 1970’s, and the aggression and immediacy of early 1980’s US Hardcore, Ex-Cult has curated a sound that audiences nationwide find accessible, yet not quite like anything else they’ve heard.

Conceived at the legendary Memphis dive, the Lamplighter, by longtime friends Michael Peery (drums) and Chris Shaw (vocals), the band played their first show three months after the first practice, immediately gaining a local fan base and grabbing the attention of the Memphis punk institution known as Goner Records.

After going through a name change (from Sex Cult to Ex-Cult) and releasing a couple of now impossible to find singles, Ex-Cult headed to San Francisco to record with producer and fan Ty Segall. The result is a post-punk juggernaut, oozing with flying saucer fuzz guitar, a pummeling rhythm section, and snarling vocals. Ex-Cult heads out on their first US tour this January supporting Ty Segall, with plans to release a handful of records in 2013 already in the works.
OBN III's
OBN III's
An air of boozy permissiveness and overstuffed bills blurs the lines between Beerland regulars; OBN III's represents the section of the club's woozy Venn diagram where The Strange Boys, Bad Sports, and A Giant Dog overlap. Representing the uncontrollable proto-punk urges surging beneath the surface of its members' regular gigs, the semi-supergroup cuts an image of a revved-up Stooges—with namesake frontman Orville Neeley capably strutting and stuttering in the Iggy Pop role.
