*** FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE ***
Magnetic Field is proud to present BYO Recording artists THROW RAG!
Hailing from the Salton Sea in California and purveyors of the self-coined
sound of "sailor rock," THROW RAG developed their own deranged hybrid of
hardcore/punk-rock, voodoo swamp boogie and nightmare roots-folk music. The
psycho carny they create in live shows is seductive, terrifying and pure
fun. The six-piece (including a washboard/trumpet player) doesn’t cut
corners when it comes to loud guitars and even louder rock’n’roll demonics.
Their live show is virtually a dual attack of lead singer Captain Sean Doe
and the maniacal Jacko on washboard. The mesmerizing derangement of watching
their cheap whiskey Satan and washboard perversion leaves no one unscathed.
Throw Rag has a fiercely loyal fan base, and has received accolades from
everyone from The Reverend Horton Heat to Chris Isaak, and from Flogging
Molly to The Misfits! In the past few years the boys have shared the stage
with such rock luminaries as The Misfits, X, Flogging Molly,The
Supersuckers, The Toilet Boys, NOFX, Motorhead, Social Distortion, Willie
Nelson, Rocket From The Crypt, Royal Crown Revue, The Humpers, Dick Dale, El
Vez, Andre Williams, Green Day, Mike Watt, Weezer, The Damned, The Dickies,
Wesley Willis, The Dwarves, T.S.O.L., Youth Brigade, Nashville Pussy, The
Cadillac Tramps and many others, picking up an army of new fans and media
fascination along the way, proving that Throw Rag is America¹s rock and roll
Playing Magnetic Field for their first time — the night after their long
sold-out support slot for Queens Of The Stoneage at Webster Hall — this
will be a show to remember!
Also playing: THE BROUGHT LOW "New York¹s The Brought Low enhance their classic- and Southern-rock
evocations with a Queens-bred, punked-out, broken-muffler rumble and
roar…" -The Boston Phoenix
