Scott H. Biram
Scott H. Biram
The self proclaimed 'Dirty Old One Man Band' successfully, and sometimes violently, lashes together blues, hillbilly and country precariously into raucous punk and godless metal. Years of non-stop touring have honed his assault to a fine edge; his wide-eyed throw downs in the First Church of Ultimate Fanaticism routinely lead giddy followers to a fiery baptism.

Biram ain't no candy-ass singer/songwriter either, sweetly strumming songs about girls with big eyes and dusty highways. HELL NO!!! His singing, yodeling, growling, leering and brash preachin' and hollerin' is accompanied by sloppy riffs and licks from his 1959 Gibson guitar and pounding backbeat brought forth by his amplified left foot. The remainder of this one-man band consists of an unwieldy combination of beat-up amplifiers and old microphones strung together by a tangled mess of guitar cables.

Scott H. Biram won't die. On May 11th, 2003, one month after being hit head-on by an 18-wheeler at 75 MPH, he took the stage at The Continental Club in Austin, TX in a wheel chair – I.V. still dangling from his arm. With 2 broken legs, a broken foot, a broken arm and 1 foot less of his lower intestine, Biram unleashed his trademark musical wrath.

When Scott H. Biram took the stage at his 2004 SXSW festival showcase right after Kris Kristofferson he was quoted as growling "They said that was a hard act to follow….I'm a hard act to follow motherfuckers!!" The stunned crowd looked on.

BIOGRAPHY
Jesse Dayton has been building a cult following around the globe playing festivals in North America and Europe for years with his guitar shredding, country-infused, Americana sound. As a critic's darling for his first record on Justice Records, Raisin' Cain (1995), and a number one Americana radio ranking, Jesse was hired at a young age to play lead guitar on some of the last recordings, and play live, by country legends Waylon Jennings, Ray Price, Johnny Bush, Willie Nelson & Glen Campbell and he's been featured in many guitar magazines. Sensing a shift in the music business climate, Jesse formed his own label in 2002, Stag Records, and began his most prolific recording period. While recording five solo records, one duet record, one live record, all on Stag, as well as two soundtrack recordings (Devil's Rejects, Halloween 2) for rocker/director Rob Zombie, Jesse managed to act in movies and music videos, produce several records for other artists (the latest being Supersuckers front man Eddie Spaghetti's "The Value Of Nothing" on Bloodshot Records), write two screenplays, and most recently wrote and directed a new horror movie, "Zombex," starring Malcolm McDowell, Sid Haig, John Doe, and Lew Temple ("Walking Dead). All while still performing 150 shows per year.
Jesse landed the part of Kinky Friedman in Ted Swindley's stage production of "Becoming Kinky: The World According To Kinky Friedman," which ran for a few weeks and also led him to releasing a record of Kinky Friedman original songs called "Jesse Sings Kinky" which has opened up a whole new chapter for him with more radio airplay than ever in his career. As his film "Zombex" just got back from Cannes Film Festival, Jesse will be releasing the Zombex soundtrack which is steeped heavy in the Louisiana/Texas music of his youth. Before JD starts on his next film, he'll be on tour "brangin' it" with his all-star band of hotdog Austin musicians, playing to his faithful fans called "Hardchargers" around the globe. Don't miss this show!!!
Alien Knife Fight
Alien Knife Fight
Alien Knife Fight features bassist/vocalist/songwriter Monique Ortiz of the Boston bands A.K.A.C.O.D., and Bourbon Princess. Michael Howard is known as the bassist of Austin stoner rock band Bay Of Pigs, and backs Monique up on drums and vocals. Monique's 2-string slide bass playing along with Mike's primal, heavy handed drumming gives Alien Knife Fight their unique take on Low Rock (a term coined by Morphine front man Mark Sandman, to describe his minimal, groove-laden, slide bass-driven rock sound). In the fourteen years that Monique lived in Boston she collaborated heavily with Morphine saxophonist Dana Colley in A.K.A.C.O.D., and original Morphine drummer Jerome Deupree in Bourbon Princess. She has also collaborated with Mission Of Burma guitarist Roger Miller, and Treat Her Right guitarist David Champagne. Monique's gritty and soulful vocal stylings have drawn comparisons to Nina Simone, Johnette Napolitano, and Nick Cave. Her lyrics focus on the surreal, the subconscious, the abstract, often taking the audience on rolling journeys, like a slow train through mysterious dreams, dark landscapes, unexplained phenomena.
Duos may have come into popularity in the past decade, but Monique has been performing in the duo format for twenty years. Alien Knife Fight is a duo like no other. No sight gags, no gimmicks. This isn't music for everyone. This is music for voyagers.
