Pierced Arrows
Pierced Arrows
After the demise of underground legends Dead Mood in fall 2006, nobody was surprised to hear that founders Fred and Toody Cole had lost little time in starting a new band. They recruited drummer Kelly Halliburton in April 2007, and soon the Pierced Arrows were up and running, playing live shows in the Northwest and recording songs for upcoming releases. Pierced Arrows picks up, musically, where Dead Mood left off - a lo-fi assault on the senses played with the sincerity and feeling that made DM such a special band for all of their fans around the world. A Pierced Arrows performance is a form of communion. They are there to see you just as much as you are to see them. You are not likely to find them cowering in a backstage corner. Though they are there to work, and work hard, don't be surprised to find them hanging with friends and fans, checking out the opening act. Fred and Toody have always done it their way. This is their life's work, and life is just the beginning if you really believe.
Don't
Don't formed in the spring of 2009 when four people from very disparate musical backgrounds got together to exchange musical ideas. What began as a few tentative practice sessions soon evolved with an almost alchemical ease into a cohesive group of songs. Armed with a live set of powerful and moving songs, they began playing around their native Northwest with diverse eclectic line-ups of bands to enthusiastic crowds. After nearly a year of honing their skills as a live band, DON'T has released their first full length CD album entitled “Away Away”.
Featuring a line-up of seasoned musical veterans, the band boasts a resume that includes an impressive list of premier Northwest bands. The combined talents of singer Jenny Don't (LADIES OF THE NIGHT), bassist Dave Minick (The Cosmetics, Napalm Beach), guitarist Dan Lowinger (KASEY ANDERSON, KATE MANN, LANA REBEL and THE LOVE LASERS, etc.) and drummer Sam Henry (THE WIPERS, NAPALM BEACH, THE RATS, MORGAN GRACE BAND) form a genre-blurring blend that spans the musical spectrum from melodic punk rock with surf overtones to an atmospheric wall of emotive and evocative sounds. Think Siouxsie sharing a fifth of Southern Comfort with the Mermen in the back of Willie Nelson's tour bus while listening to the Wipers.
