THE JOE JACKSONS are a rock 'n' roll band from Austin, TX featuring former Weary Boys front man Mario Matteoli and local top guns Rob Bacak (Crooks) and Zac Bryant (Sounds del Mar). Together they mix Stooges-era sleaze with early 80's punk and a little Seattle grunge for good measure. Hold on to your faces, lest they melt right off.
BLOOD PUMPS just put out their very first EP America & Burgers, but singer/bassist Bill Stevenson, guitarists Mike Brinley and Joe Lewis, and drummer Jordan Cook have quite a bit of experience playing together. Together, they form the rhythym section of Black Joe Lewis and The Honeybears. While they may share members of the same band, Blood Pumps is fully the brainchild of singer, Stevenson.
Mesmerizing and Endlessly Surprising - a songwriter's songwriter. Playfully prodding the human condition through an idiosyncratic pop ingrained with folk and NOLA jazz instincts, the singer/guitarist/pianist tosses off tunes with that a mixture of simplicity and gravity." - Austin Chronicle
