Brief Bio:- Largemouth Bastards
It's the beginning of 2013 and the bastards are in the studio to lay down the ground work for their first EP titled Tennessee 7. The Largemouth are comprised of 2 bands, The punk band Misguided which is all the members of the Bastards excluding George and Matt. The Misguided had many line up changes over the last decade which included Jesse from the Aggrolites and many others. Then there was Clint's side project the Dead Enderz which had George on upright bass and Matt who recorded mandolin on the Dead Enderz album. During the break between the Misguided and Dead Enderz, Clint decided to merge the two bands and start Largemouth Bastards. Many have had the pleasure of watching them live for the past couple years and it definitely leaves you wanting more. The years of playing run down seedy bars filled with smoke and booze have finally brought the bastards to a climax. The shanty watering holes with sweaty rockers running around half drunk have finally paid off in a release that is poised to stroke your ear hole and leave you wanting more! Somehow the bastards found a way through their punk rock days to lay down a mix of sound that stimulates all of your music tastes in one well put together EP. Fresh out of the Loaded Bomb Records studio this EP is the driving force behind this locomotive that is smashing through the doors of the Southern California music scene. Also to include the album being mastered by Derek O'Brien of Social Distortion and The Adolescents. Some might say to themselves it sounds like a mix of punk/bluegrass, or maybe celtic/punk, or even folk/punk. But in the eyes of the Bastards themselves they are simply punk rockers with punk rock roots and influences. They simply added a few unconventional instruments such as the banjo, upright bass, and mandolin. They mixed their own influences and playing styles, to come up with their own brand of country, folk, bluegrass, punk rock and rockabilly. The 3 and 4 part harmonies, the lyrics tasting of real life, and the high energy acoustic and slightly distorted electric sounds put the Largemouth Bastards in a genre of their own. Its best put this way, it's bluegrass that meets punk rock on the streets for a fist fight! The new EP is a brand of music that crosses boundaries into multiple genres's and as Clint Johnson (lead singer/guitar) puts it, "has a little something for everyone."
