SLAMDINISTAS bring raw, in-your-face, street rock and roll. Their song ‘Brand New Day’ is getting massive radio respect, including regular plays on Rodney Bingenheimer’s Sirius XM radio show Underground Garage. This, and their incendiary live show at a label honcho’s Halloween Birthday Bash, brought SLAMDINISTAS to the attention of Die Laughing Records/Golden Robot Records. What next? The prestigious label signed them immediately.
Slamdinistas’ influences range from 70’s English pub rock, punk & classic rock, with focus on the British scene – aka Stones and Faces – recalling the glory days of rock & roll.
Each band member has made claim to his own piece of music history – as they say, “guilty by association!”
Gabriel Johns: vocals, longtime singer/songwriter. LA club booker and worked with his own bands Shelter and FiDo.
Loren Molinare: guitarist and producer. Detroit transplant who’s band The Dogs has left a serious mark on the seminal punk/Detroit rock scene. Also plays with Little Caesar and Michael Des Barres & The Mistakes.
Michael Gavigan: guitarist, slide guitarist and backup vocalist. Played guitar and produced records for The Blessings.
Paul ILL: bass guitarist. Recorded and performed with many artists including The Willie Dixon Family Band, Tina Turner and Linda Perry.
Brian Irving: drummer. Has worked with Chris Spedding, Gilby Clarke, Glitter Trash.
These fine gents, whose collective roots grip deep in the LA rock scene, realised their studio chemistry worked so well, it was as if the band had several tours behind them. The sound born that on those fateful sessions brings you: SLAMDINISTAS!
